Lexus NX SUV gets lower-CO2 front-wheel drive version

Lexus has added a new front-wheel drive version of its NX midsize SUV, bringing lower CO2 emissions to deliver reduced Benefit-in-Kind taxation for drivers.

The entry-level front-wheel drive Lexus NX is on sale now

Available to order now and priced at £35,860 OTR, the new entry-level model replaces the range’s standard E-Four all-wheel drive system with front-wheel drive. Alongside smaller, 17-inch alloys, it means the model benefits from a reduction in combined cycle CO2 emissions – from 171 to 161g/km – moving it from the 37% BiK rating to 35%. This delivers a saving of £418 in the first year and £832 over three years for a business motorist paying income tax at 40%.

The reduced CO2 also brings a £330 saving in first-year VED while the NX300h in front-wheel drive also benefits from an improved official combined cycle figure of 39.7mpg, compared to 37.1mpg in all-wheel drive.

The specification includes power-adjustable front seats, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and Lexus Safety Sense.

The new front-wheel drive NX is on sale now, with customer deliveries to commence as lockdown conditions permit.
