One look at the 2022 Lexus NX 350 F Sport and you may feel its allure. It's a good luxury compact SUV with a lavish interior and lots of safety and convenience tech, and it glides over bumpy roads. The optional turbocharged engine boosts the NX's power and refinement.
Boasting dynamic handling courtesy of an advanced platform with a low center of gravity, the NX offers powerful engines across the line, including the innovative Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, the NX 450h+ AWD.
It drives like it looks; quick, strong, and eager on the streets. It kicks butt with the acceleration and handling. I fell in love with the sport-racing pedals seen at left. The grip on the plate (seen at left corner) is just another sweet touch that makes hitting the gas or brakes more fun with greater feel. I also enjoyd havibng that left plate there to rest my left foot.
DYNAMIC F SPORT HANDLING
With six drive modes, you'll take the performance and bold design of the NX even further with the NX 350 F SPORT Handling AWD and NX 450h+ F SPORT Handling AWD. (Limited availability.
The seats at left are purely awesome. You relish the rich leather with the F sport badgin in the headrest is such a premium touch.
The rest of the seat design is more than just eye-popping. Its comfortable and nicely tailored. Perforated areas on the back and seats allow for better flow and comfort, The shoulder supports up top are also helpful on those corners
In addition to more aggressive styling, both models offer an enhanced sport-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension and front and rear performance dampers to deliver a dynamic ride that doesn’t just respond to the road. More importantly, it responds to you.
