August 31 2018,
Starting at $ 44,050, the new 2019 Lexus NX has now arrived at Lexus dealers in Canada. Offered with two engines and several versions, the NX is a luxury SUV that offers its customers remarkable comfort, the latest connectivity and safety technologies, and a high-end cabin where luxury reigns.
Two engines offered in the 2019 Lexus NX
The 2019 Lexus NX offers its customers several versions, but the first choice that the buyer has to make is on the engine side. Indeed, the 2019 Lexus NX is equipped out of the gate with a 2.0-liter turbo engine developing 235 horsepower and featuring an Atkinson cycle. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
That said, it is also possible to opt for a hybrid engine that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor. In both cases, the NX is very fuel efficient, but it is clear that the hybrid model is even more impressive in terms of efficiency. Note also that the 2019 Lexus NX’s is basically alone in its segment. Few other luxury entry-level SUVs offer a hybrid option.
“The NX series blends brave design – inside and out– with nimble handling and outstanding performance in a luxury crossover that stands out from the crowd,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada. “The NX combines the versatility of an SUV with the driving dynamics of a sedan in a beautiful, luxurious package.”
The 2019 Lexus NX also stands out in terms of safety with the Lexus Safety System +. This bundle of active safety technologies (pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with lane keep assist, dynamic radar cruise control, and automatic high beam system) is now standard equipment on 98% of all new models Lexus offers in Canada. Other standard safety features include whiplash injury-lessening headrests on the front seats, LED brake lamps, a backup camera, eight airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
