Completely redesigned this year, the 2022 Lexus NX receives some major updates to help it remain a key player in the hotly contested compact luxury suv segment. In addition to an all-new exterior, the 2022 NX gets an all-new driver-oriented cockpit, a leading-edge infotainment system with one of the largest touchscreens in its class, new options such as a wireless device charger, panoramic sunroof, and head-up display, plus expanded advanced driver-assistance systems and four new powertrain options.
With a fast-sloping, coupe-like roofline, the new NX has a sporty profile and youthful appeal, accented by one of the more attractive iterations of the Lexus spindle grille, new high-mounted LED driving lamps, first-ever available upsized 20-inch wheels, and new full-width tail lamps. The previous generation’s sharp body-side creases give way to softer sculpted flanks. Sizewise, the NX moves to the Toyota RAV4’s 105.9-inch wheelbase and grows half an inch taller and nearly an inch longer, bumper to bumper.
The model count grows for 2022. Including the $1,075 destination charge, the lineup consists of the $39,025 NX 250, turbocharged $42,625 NX 350, $42,125 NX 350h hybrid, and $56,635 NX 450h+ plug-in hybrid. The NX250 comes standard with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive (AWD) is a $1,600 upcharge. The NX 350, NX 350h, and NX 450h+ are equipped solely with AWD.
