As for the current SU7 model, the company has planned to produce 300 units in December – double the number in November. In the meantime, production processes are being debugged – not everything is going smoothly with them: either the conveyor will stop, or spare parts for it will not be delivered on time.

Adaptive suspension increased ground clearance all terrain tires Lexus NX 2024

It’s certainly not nearly as extreme as the new Lexus GX Overtrail, but the NX Overtrail should perform better off-road thanks to new 18-inch alloy wheels shod with all-terrain tires. By the way, due to this, the ground clearance increased by 15 mm. The crossover also received special settings for the adaptive adjustable suspension, due to which the car should shake less on uneven surfaces.

Externally, the Lexus NX 2024 Overtrail can be easily distinguished by its combination paintwork with black elements (wheels, grille, door handles, mirror housings and roof rails) and a body painted in Moon Desert color.

The sound insulation has also been improved. All models receive illuminated rear door handles, two USB-C ports on the center console, and the 14-inch touchscreen media system, previously only available on the top-end NX450h+, is now standard on the NX250 and NX350h models.
