2020 Lexus NX
The luxury 2020 Lexus NX is a crossover for the modern age. With its sleek exterior appearance, welcoming interior, and unique tech features, the NX is a car that drivers near Larchmont, New Rochelle, and Yonkers will be proud to call their own.
Our 2020 Lexus NX review goes in-depth to explore some of the key features and amenities this crossover has to offer. We look forward to seeing you here for a test drive at Lexus of Larchmont.
The 4-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood of the Lexus NX 300 delivers 235 horsepower and is mated to a 6-speed electronically controlled transmission. While this engine delivers exceptional power out on the highway and on city streets, it’s how you take advantage of that power that can make your drives exhilarating.
The Drive Mode Select feature lets you take advantage of every drive. With Sport mode, for example, you’ll be able to modify the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle response. When you set things to ECO mode, the throttle response and engine power are dialed back a bit for better fuel efficiency.
Thanks to available all-wheel-drive, the NX and NX F SPORT can monitor vehicle and road conditions and predict your path. If any spinning of the wheels is detected, up to 50% of available torque will be provided to the rear wheels to ensure you remain steady on your drive.
Feeling at Home Inside the NX
Standard on the Lexus NX 300 Luxury trim is a leather-trimmed shift knob and heated steering wheel. This combines craftsmanship with comfort and gives the cabin a more upscale look. With a heated steering wheel, your hands will warm up quickly on those cold mornings at a temperature just to your liking.
It’s also possible to personalize your comfort through the 10-way power-adjustable driver’s and 8-way front passenger’s seats. Each seat also comes with a height-adjustable headrest, so you have a perfect place to rest your head on those long drives.
The available power moonroof in the Lexus NX is expansive with an outer-sliding design that provides a larger opening and more interior headroom than a conventional moonroof. When you want to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine like you never have before in a car, this moonroof is the way to go.
Lexus Safety Features
Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 is the most comprehensive safety system ever included in a Lexus, designed to prevent collisions and better inform drivers. This standard active safety equipment is designed to intervene only when you need assistance, but it’s nice to have a friend with you in the car at all times, even when it’s not human.
Safety features include:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Tracing Assist
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Road Sign Assist
- All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
With the pre-collision technology, detecting a vehicle or even a bicyclist up ahead is possible. If you aren’t able to react in time, the brakes will activate automatically to bring the car to a stop.
Road Sign Assist is a unique feature, too. This uses a built-in camera to provide road sign information right in the instrument panel. If it’s dark at night and you’re looking around for a speed limit sign or stop sign, it’ll be displayed right in front of you. That’s Lexus making driving easier for you.
