Bookings for the Lexus NX300h are now open at Rs. 5 lakh that will come with a 196hp petrol-hybrid engine. Toyota’s luxury arm, Lexus, is all set to bring in their fourth model for its India range. This time, the firm will launch its minimum offering internationally, the NX300h SUV, in India on November 17, 2017. We will get the face lifted version of the Lexus NX SUV which was revealed at the Shanghai Motor show earlier this year. The India-spec Lexus NX will be accessible with only one powertrain option, the Lexus NX300h, equipped with a 196-hp 2.5-litre petrol-hybrid shape, similar to the one seen on the Lexus ES300h sedan.

On the inside, the Lexus NX300h will come with high-quality leather interior with soft-touch materials and a 10.3-inch infotainment screen. Two variants will be offered for our market ¬ the entry-level ‘Luxury’ trim and the top-spec ‘F-Sport’ variant ¬ which will get unique exterior bits and paddle shifters as well. Lexus will also equip the NX300h for our market with a heads-up display system. Unlike the larger RX300h, the NX300h will come with navigation system as standard.

Lexus will, like its other models, sell the SUV in India as a fully-imported unit. The NX300h is a direct rival to the locally assembled Mercedes GLA and the Audi Q3, but thanks to high import duties, it will be priced way above the competition. Dealers tell us that prices for the Lexus NX300h are likely to start at Rs.74 lakh for the entry-level model and going up to Rs.78 lakh for the top-spec F-Sport trim. The SUV is open for booking at Rs.5 lakh. Distributions are being assured sometime around March next year.
