Lexus has introduced a front-wheel-drive version of its NX mid-size SUV, offering lower CO2 emissions and better fuel economy.
The new model is also the cheapest in the range, coming only in the entry-level NX specification, it costs from £35,275 (p11d).
CO2 emissions of 161g/km are 10g/km lower than those on the all-wheel-drive versions, bringing the car down two BIK bands 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%.
Fuel economy is also improved, with the front-wheel-drive NX 300h achieving 39.4mpg.
The NX features power-adjustable front seats, eight-inch multi-media display, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, LED headlights with Automatic High Beam, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, auto-folding door mirrors, auto-diming rear-view mirror and an eight-speaker audio system.
Lexus Safety Sense is also provided as standard, including Pre-Collision Safety, Adaptive Cruise Control Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Lexus Navigation can be specified as an option.
