  4. A moment’s inattention when manoeuvring in and out of a parking space can lead to costly bumps and scrapes, even when parking sensors are sounding a warning. There is a more effective solution in the intelligent front and rear parking sensors that Lexus is now fitting to all versions of its 2021 NX mid-size SUV The system is newly introduced to the specification for the entry-level NX, Premium Sport Edition and F Sport models (also included in versions with the Premium and Premium Plus option packs). It gives the familiar audible alert if an obstacle is detected and also, at speeds below 10mph, applies Drive Force Limiting Control to reduce acceleration and issues a “brake” warning on the driver’s multi-information display. If the driver fails to respond and a collision is unavoidable, it will automatically engage braking control to bring the car to a stop. A similar focus on safety is also adding the combination of a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to the standard equipment features for the NX F Sport. Elsewhere, the focus is on colour with new Terrane Khaki and Celestial Blue metallic paint options added to the range. There is also a new interior finish for the NX Premium Sport Edition, with seats upholstered in black Tahara with crimson accents, combined with silver trim inlays and a matching crimson finish for the instrument panel. Tahara is Lexus’ high-quality, supple, synthetic alternative to leather, which is free from any animal products. All NX models feature a self-charging hybrid electric powertrain, with the option of E-Four electric all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. As a full hybrid, the NX can be driven in all-electric EV mode in urban traffic (when driving conditions and battery charge permit). The 2021 NX is available to order now, with customer deliveries from September.
  5. Lexus cars have again been declared the most dependable you can buy with the brand taking the top ranking in the newly published Which? car reliability survey The consumer champion’s detailed study produced its findings from the real-world experiences and opinions of more than 47,000 UK motorists, covering almost 59,000 individual vehicles. Lexus secured its leading status with a fault-free report for the CT 200h hatchback and a near-perfect performance from the NX mid-size SUV. The results covered vehicles from new to three years old and three to eight years old. The glowing report from Which? states: “Got the money for a Lexus? Do it. You might just forget what a mechanic’s waiting room looks like.” A key factor in Lexus’s impressive performance is its self-charging hybrid technology. Which? highlights the proven durability and mechanical simplicity of the electrified system in making Lexus cars more resilient to faults. Lexus introduced hybrid to the UK premium market in 2005, since when it has constantly improved its performance and efficiency and extended it across its entire model range; today hybrids account for 99.8 per cent of its UK new car sales. Ewan Shepherd, Director of Lexus in the UK said: “The results of the thorough research carried out by Which? are a further validation of the lasting quality and craftmanship engineered into every Lexus model. Making cars that people can rely on, year after year, is fundamental to our business and goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to always providing the highest standards of customer service.”
