Infotainment: Apple CarPlay icon Apple CarPlay   Android Auto icon Android Auto  

Lexus unveiled the second generation of the NX in June 2021, and despite its look very similar to its predecessor, it was a completely new vehicle from tip to toe.

The NX was the premium sibling of the Toyota Rav4, and they both shared the same TNGA-K platform with the Avalon or the Highlander models built by the same Japanese carmaker. That allowed front or all-wheel-drive systems, gasoline or hybrid power engines, and starting with the 2022 NX, a plug-in hybrid.

The 2022 NX featured a new front fascia with a more expansive "spindle-grille" design. It wasn't everybody's cup of tea, but it worked well for other vehicles within the Lexus range. It also sported new LED headlights and L-shaped daytime running lights. The door panels and fenders were a mix of curved angular lines and curved areas. At the back, the taillights featured a connecting light strip that ran across the tailgate. Its raked-forward windscreen and C-pillars enhanced the vehicle's dynamic look, while the roof spoiler created an even sportier image.

Inside, Lexus installed a 7" instrument panel named Multi Instrument Display (MID) complemented by a 10" Head Up Display (HUD) available as an option. The carmaker placed a standard 9.8" touchscreen above the center stack for the infotainment unit, with an option for a 14" display. It featured wireless connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, enhancing the driver's experience. Lexus kept the physical turn-dials for the volume and climate control unit. The NX provided seating for four with high-bolstered front bucket seats and a bench for two in the back.

Under the hood, the compact SUV featured a range of four engines, starting with a 2.5-liter inline-four that replaced the older 2.0-liter unit and went up to a turbocharged and electrified 2.4-liter, 275 hp four-banger.
