There are six trims to choose from in 2021, starting with the base NX 300, followed by the NX 300 F Sport and NX 300 Luxury. The Hybrid range includes the NX 300h AWD, NX 300h Luxury AWD, and the NX 300h F Sport AWD Black Line Special Edition. All gas-only models are powered by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 235 hp and 258 lb-ft. Power is sent to either the front or all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Hybrid models are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with three electric motors and sends it spower to the wheels via a CVT transmission.
Standard features on lower trims include LED headlights, ten-way power-adjustable front seats, SmartAccess with push-button start, an eight-inch infotainment display, and dual-zone climate control. F Sport models add a tuned suspension, aluminum pedals, a sporty front grille, sport seats, and a black headliner, amongst others. The Luxury includes features like heated and ventilated front seats, a power tilt-and-slide moonroof, and a 10.3-inch infotainment display with navigation and dynamic voice command.
The list of standard features in the NX is already quite impressive, but new buyers can always choose to extend that list by adding extra options. Here, we cover just a few of them. The base model can be equipped with options such as the $2,630 Premium Package, which adds enhanced LED daytime running lights with integrated turn indicators, a power moonroof, a Lexus memory system, 18-inch split-five-spoke alloy wheels, and heated and ventilated front seats. This package does, however, require adding an auto-dimming rearview mirror, which will cost $150.
The $1,985 Navigation Package includes a navigation system with a 10.3-inch split-screen multimedia display, Lexus Enform dynamic navigation, a ten-speaker premium sound system, Lexus Enform destination assist, dynamic voice command, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. Adding this package can only be done by simultaneously speccing the Premium Package.
Even the range-topping Luxury can be improved with options such as the Navigation/Mark Levinson Package, which, for $1,060, adds a Mark Levinson premium surround-sound audio system, Lexus Enform destination assist, and more. This package is available to the lower trims, too, but at a significantly higher price.
