There are 11 Lexus NX trims. The gas trim levels are 250, 250 Premium, 350, 350 Premium, 350 F Sport Handling, and 350 Luxury - the 250s with a 203-hp naturally aspirated 2.5L four-cylinder engine, and the 350s with a 275-hp turbocharged 2.4L. Base trims come in FWD or AWD drivetrain configurations, but the top trims are AWD only. The specs of the five Lexus NX hybrid trims differ, with either 240 hp from the hybrid or 304 hp from the plug-in hybrid, courtesy of a 2.5L engine in all cases, but with more powerful electric motors for the PHEV.
Standard specifications across the board include alloy wheels ranging from 18 to 20 inches, LED headlights, keyless entry, push-button start, heated power front seats, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster, and dual-zone climate control. Higher trims add items such as leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a sunroof, and a power-adjustable steering column.
Many of the higher trims' features are available on the lower trims separately or as part of a package. Base trims have a cloud-connected 9.8-inch touchscreen with cloud navigation and a 10-speaker audio system, while top trims get a 14-inch touchscreen. All trims get wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with audio streaming, SiriusXM, voice commands, and the Lexus app. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system is on the options list. The Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 driver-assistance suite - standard on all NXs - includes adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, automatic braking, lane-keep assist with steering assist, lane tracing, road sign recognition, and more.
