Introduced in 2014 the Lexus NX was significantly updated in 2022 with the second generation. Aesthetics and dimensions have been revised increasing the Japanese SUV by a few centimetres to the benefit of habitability and load capacity.

Notable changes have also been made to the powertrain. In addition to the traditional hybrid system, a 306 PS rechargeable powertrain is also available. These differences do not affect boot space.

Lexus NX, dimensions

The Lexus NX is 4.66 metres long (4,660 mm), 1.86 metres wide (1,865 mm), 1.67 metres high (1,670 mm) and its wheelbase, the distance between the centres of the front and rear wheels, is 2.69 metres (2,690 mm). These dimensions place it in segment D, the mid-size SUV segment.

Lexus NX, interior space and luggage compartment

Generous exterior dimensions enable the Lexus NX to offer good interior space at the front and rear. The front seats are well designed, sporty but not overly so, and the rear bench offers soft padding on the seat and backrest, even in the middle. There's plenty of head, leg and foot room, and the centre tunnel isn't too bulky, so as not to get in the way of those in the middle.

The boot has a capacity of 545 litres regardless of whatever engine you choose because the batteries are housed in the floor of the car. The space is regular in shape and well finished, but unfortunately the shelf cannot be arranged on two levels. A very practical feature is the microfibre rear parcel shelf which, once folded, can be stowed away without cluttering up the boot.

The rear backrest folds in a 60:40 pattern, but there is no practical central hatch for passing longer objects through.

As mentioned, the engine range is fully electrified and includes the 243 PS 2.5-litre full hybrid and the 306 PS plug-in.
