    So what’s new with the 2021 Lexus NX 300h? Not much but some added equipment as standard and a new trim level, NX 300h F-Sport Blackline. Still has the same 1st gen RAV4 hybrid tech inside.

    Read it all here: What’s New: 2021 Lexus NX 300 / NX 300h - Lexus USA Newsroom

    Specs are here: 2021 Lexus NX Hybrid - Lexus USA Newsroom

    Highlights:
    Added Blind Spot Monitor with Cross Traffic Alert as standard equipment
    The power folding, dimming, auto reverse mirrors are now standard.
    They also moved Homelink to Navigation.

    Edited to show NX Hybrid tech is actually 1st generation RAV4 Hybrid tech.

    Probably since they’ll switch NX Manufacturing to Ontario, Canada. Too busy doing that right now so might as well kill 2 birds with one stone. But I’m guessing they’ll keep the NX 450h+ productivity in Japan. The RAV4 Hybrid is being built in either Indiana or Kentucky so they have a similar drive train across the border for NXh. Not sure if the RAV4 Prime will still be built in Japan next year as well.

    What an example of marketing BS: "The NX 300’s raised driving position evokes a sporty driving experience with features to complement a busy lifestyle.". Maybe Corvette drivers should get a lift kit to get a "sporty driving experience".
