The Lexus NX Sport adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a spindle grille design with a black finish and door mirrors to match. Inside there's black leather upholstery with aluminium hightlights, plus heated front seats. There's new safety kit, with a pre-crash system and adaptive cruise control as standard. It also gets an 8-inch sat-nav screen, DAB radio, climate control and autolights and wipers. It costs £1,000 more than an NX 300h SE, at £33,995.

Some new colours have been added to the NX range too, with Azure Blue and Solar Flare paint added to the list.

The Premier pack for the NX and RX models (in F sport trim) is a new option that adds a load of high-end equipment for £5,750 or £4,500 respectively. On the NX, the pack adds sat-nav, a 14-speaker sound system, a head-up display, a heated steering wheel and adaptive suspension, as well as auto high beams, lane keep assist and rear cross traffic alert safety systems.

On the RX, the Permier pack adds the speaker system, head-up display and heated wheel, but also gets a card key and a panoramic sunroof. There's a 360-degree view camera on both as well. Plus, the RX has been updated with new safety features including an auto braking function for the rear cross traffic alert.

On the Lexus RC F and GS F performance cars, Lexus has added new Adaptie Variable Suspension to improve ride and handling - and the torque vectoring and safety systems ahve been tuned to accomodate the new tech.
