The 2022 Lexus NX has made its early (and unexpected) debut online, courtesy of a leaked promotional video shared on forum platform Reddit.
The video – which was first published to YouTube, but later deleted – showcases the new mid-size Lexus SUV inside and out, revealing an updated exterior design clothing an overhauled cabin headlined by a pair of screens and the deletion of the current NX's controversial touchpad infotainment controller.
Lexus recalls more than 6000 vehicles affected by a faulty fuel pump
Lexus Australia has issued a recall of 6610 of its model-year 2013-2019 IS (ASE30 and GSE31), GS (ARL10, GLR10/11/12 and GWL10), RX (GGL2# and GYL2#), LC (GWZ100 and URZ100), LS (USF40, GVF50, VXFA50 and UVF4#), LX (URJ201), NX (AGZ1#) (pictured above), RC (ASC10 and GSC10), and IS-F (USE20) models due to a faulty fuel pump.
Affected models were sold between 27 September 2013 and 29 February 2020.
Lexus Australia has introduced a pair of special-edition models based on the NX and RX crossovers, which bring additional specification to entry-level variants for a minor price increase.
The NX Crafted and RX Crafted editions are based on the Luxury trim level in both cases, and are available with all engine variants of the NX and five-seat RX.
Lexus small electrified crossover taking shape, CT hatch on the outer
As expected, Lexus is odds-on to scrap the CT small hatchback and replace it with a small crossover SUV sharing some bits with the Toyota C-HR, to better capitalise on demand at the lower end of the luxury market.
The CT200h is Lexus’ smallest car, and also its only vehicle sold exclusively with a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. Yet its global sales haven’t been spectacular, with the key US market even dropping the model for 2018.
