The 2016 Lexus NX F SPORT looks like it wants to devour the road, with a grille that’s even bolder than on the standard model. The L-mesh black grille integrates with a metallic coated lower bumper molding, and black side mirrors match the grille.

Exclusive wheels, cabin styling and trim, and bolstered sports seats add to the F SPORT repertoire in the NX.

How much added sportiness you want in the 2016 Lexus NX F SPORT ride depends on the wheels you choose. A split-five-spoke 18-inch alloy design combines black paint on the lateral edges with a luminous machine-brushed finish and features 225/60R18 all-season tires. The second design, with a dark metallic finish and high-gloss split-five-spokes, uses lower profile 235/55R18 summer tires. Body-hugging, quilted NuLuxe seats are exclusive in the F SPORT, which offers an exclusive interior color, Rioja Red. The driver grips a perforated F SPORT steering wheel and brushed metallic gearshift. The unique instrumentation and drilled non-slip aluminum pedals and footrest were inspired by the Lexus LFA supercar. The tachometer red line is even more clearly marked in this model.

The NX 200t F SPORT also features Active Sound Control (ASC) to enhance the auditory experience. The engine note volume resonating through the cabin can be adjusted when the driver turns on ASC.

F SPORT Instrumentation

Watch how the NX 200t F SPORT is performing in real time with the Lexus-first G-Force meter “G-ball” in the Multi Information Display.

In the NX 200t F SPORT, the G-ball moves in response to the vehicle’s lateral and longitudinal forces. The MID displays the peak force in each direction. Display bars indicate the steering angle, throttle opening angle and brake pressure. The MID also provides a turbo-boost display, with the color band changing in the high boost pressure range. There are also analog displays for oil temperature and oil pressure.
