2020 Lexus NX Hybrid Redesign
The 2020 Lexus NX Hybrid comes with the new cutting-edge design and interior improvements. There is plenty of exterior detail that will catch the eye of the customers. One of the focal points surely will be the effectively wide open grille. In addition, the detailed LED headlamps with the 3-dimensional sculpting on the taillights definitely helps to establish a recognizable look.
Also, the headlamps include LED side turn signal, as well as an Adaptive Front Lighting System. This system uses steering and speed sensors to direct the angle of low-beam illumination when the vehicle enters the curve. Furthermore, the available Power Rear Door with Kick Sensor make the loading and unloading easier than ever. The NX Hybrid is a five-door vehicle and with additional roof rails and crossbars, the capability can be extended even further.
The 2020 Lexus NX Hybrid is a two-row luxury SUV that can accommodate up to five passengers. The front seats are impressively broad, for a small crossover like this. Moreover, the power-adjustment seats/steering wheel features are available, so the driver and the shotgun passenger can easily find the most comfortable position. However, the rear-seat legroom is not so generous, even though the adults still can fit back there in relative comfort.
The base model offers synthetic leather upholstery as standard. Of course, if you choose the higher trims or additional packages the genuine leather upholstery is available. Furthermore, the upgrades include heated/ventilated front seats and power-folding rear seats that recline. The cabin is an outstanding mixture of high-quality materials and the latest technology.
But, when it comes to the cargo space, new NX isn’t so competitive. This luxury SUV offers 16.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats and extends up to 53.7 when the rear seats are folded. That’s below-average rating for the vehicle of this size.
The forthcoming 2020 Lexus NX Hybrid offers a remarkable amount of standard and additional equipment. The entry-level includes features like new 14-speaker, 835-watt Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System, and Amazon Alexa. The Lexus+Alexa app allows you to easily access every skill you get with Alexa at home. That means you can listen to audiobooks, stream music, check the weather, get news and much more.
Moreover, the Lexus Enform App Suite 2.0 offers access to mobile applications through your vehicle’s multimedia display. One of the finest features is Remote Touchpad. This is more than a handy way to control navigation and climate control. The touchpad mimics smartphone operations with copious touch surface area, pulsation feedback, and excellent swipe/pinch/flick gesture.
An optional feature for the base model is Navigation System with a 10.3-inch split-screen multimedia display. This system provides immediate, simultaneous access to audio or some other controls and various functions. On top of that, Lexus Enfrom Destination Assist offers 24-hour connection to a live response center agent to help you find a specific address, point of interest, or business.
