Lexus NX to feature wireless charging tray

THE new Lexus NX sports utility vehicle will have a wireless charging tray for compatible smartphones and portable music players.

That is among the headline features of the Lexus NX which is due to reach Australia in October. 

Shown overnight at the Good Design Australia awards, the NX will also have touch sensitive interior lighting and power adjustment for rear seats.

Lexus firsts include the debut of a third generation Lexus Remote Touch system that mirrors the operations of a smartphone.

An all-new 360 degree Panoramic View Monitor will also be available.

A reverse camera will be standard across all models, while blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert will be offered across selected NX 300h models.

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said the NX will bring with it a host of new technology when it launches late this year.

"NX will bring with it a vast array of new and innovative features, suited perfectly to an active, urban lifestyle - and many of these features are a first for Australia," Mr Hanley said.

"The NX will bring to this segment a unique blend of design, dynamics, specification and service - but importantly greater consumer choice.

"With NX 300h and 200t customers will be able to choose from a broad range of drivetrains and models, all paired to the greatest array of interior and exterior combinations to grace a Lexus production vehicle."
