Lexus is all about first, and its next chapter is full of them. The 2022 Lexus NX prioritizes what matters most to drivers by centering around four pillars: Design, Lexus Driving Signature, Electrification and Advanced Technology. Each is reimagined from previous vehicles, and takes a new approach to vehicle development.

The 2022 NX is a five-seat luxury crossover SUV that includes some of the most technological vehicle advances in Lexus history. The Lexus Interface is one of the newest changes to the current generation of the NX, being an all-new multimedia system that has an optional 14-inch touchscreen for maximum user interaction. This interface is designed to provide seamless connectivity and personalization for users to create their own experiences. Highlights of this interface include Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Voice Assistant, cloud-navigation capable with Google Points of Interest (POI), and more, in addition to a Human Machine Interface that enhances user interaction through sight, touch and voice while balancing accessibility needs. 

Besides the Lexus Interface, the 2022 NX also includes the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0. that has  unique Curve Speed Management and Intersection Support features to protect the driver at multiple angles. The safety features in this system are meant to assist the driver in any weather condition to prevent collision, as well as assist with road signs and high beams. Other upgrades in the newest generation include a longer, wider and taller design than the previous model for more cargo, plus a whisper-quiet refuge thanks to the noise dampening materials used to craft the vehicle. 

The theme of personalization continues in the exterior and interior of the vehicle. The optional Thematic Ambient Illumination bathes the inside to mimic a nature-inspired oasis with 14 theme options. On the other hand, the interior seat and console colors give a sense of opulence, ranging in sleek black to a deluxe red. To tie it all together, users can request an optional panoramic moonroof to increase the calm ambience in the space with just a push of a button.
