The new Lexus NX crossover made its UK public debut at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
Ahead of its official launch in October 2014, the Lexus NX will be on display at the Quiet Mark Treehouse and Garden by John Lewis. The display offers an early opportunity for the public to take a close look at the new model.
The preview appearance of the new Lexus NX crossover at the world’s largest annual flower show extends the Japanese carmaker’s relationship with Quiet Mark.
Quiet Mark is an international seal of approval from the UK’s Noise Abatement Society, encouraging the design of quieter, high-performance technology.
The Lexus NX crossover fits this billing perfectly. With its full hybrid powertrain, the NX crossover can be driven at low speeds with near-silent running, along with zero CO2 emissions and high fuel economy.
Lexus is also a sponsor of this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, which explores different aspects of gardening and garden design in three zones, titled: ‘Grow’, ‘Escape’, and ‘Inspire’.
The new NX model will be featured in the ‘Inspire’ zone, showcasing the latest advances in contemporary design and technology from the Japanese manufacturer.
Visitors to the flower show will not only be able to admire the blooms and show gardens, they will also be able to learn gardening skills from a programme of demonstrations by experts.
In addition, visitors can enjoy a host of family entertainment and attractions, as well as stocking up on plants, tools and garden leisure items from market-style shopping stands at the event.
The new Lexus NX crossover and the Quiet Mark Treehouse and Garden by John Lewis can be found at stand E165.
When it is released in the UK, the Lexus NX will be available in five trim levels: S, SE, Luxury, F Sport, and Premier, with prices starting from £29,495.
