Lexus has widened its offering in Australia with the introduction of the NX and RX Crafted Editions. They build on the Luxury grade and bring exterior enhancements and more kit for AUD $61,806 (USD $43,167) and AUD $79,888 (USD $55,796), respectively.
The NX Crafted can be specced in the 2WD and AWD versions of the 300 and 300h and adds black accents on the grille and side mirror caps. It comes with a selection of nine colors, including the AUD $1,500 (USD $1,048) premium paint, and sits on unique 18-inch alloy wheels, with a black look, brightly machined surfaces and five double-spoke pattern.
Completing the package are a 360-degree camera system, keyless entry and illuminated front-door scuff plates, along with the usual gear like the satellite navigation, 10-speaker audio system, tire pressure warning sensors and electrically-operated tailgate.
