LEXUS NX SAFETY

LEXUS NX SAFETY

Lexus Safety System +

Innovative technology abounds in the Lexus NX including, importantly, in the safety systems found throughout the vehicle which help alert you to danger and alleviate risk if the unexpected happens.

AUTONOMOUS TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED TO ASSIST

AUTONOMOUS TECHNOLOGY DESIGNED TO ASSIST

A technologically advanced Pre-Collision Safety System (PCS)19 uses a radar sensor and camera to detect vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in front of the vehicle, warning you of potentially dangerous situations. Pedestrian detection even works at night-time.

The all-speed Radar Active Cruise Control (RACC)2 judges the distance to the vehicle in front and matching its speed when cruise control is turned on. The advanced system can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop without the driver having to touch the brake pedal. Supported by Road Sign Assist (RSA), the set speed can adapt to the last speed sign identified by RSA at the push of a button. 

The safety story doesn’t end there with the inclusion of Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)8. When RACC is active, LTA helps keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane with minimal swaying around gentle curves. 

 

MONITORING HARD-TO-SEE AREAS

MONITORING HARD-TO-SEE AREAS

For those times when surrounding vehicles can't be seen from within the NX, a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)8 with Rear Crossing Traffic Alert (RCTA)8 is a welcome standard inclusion across all model variants. Using a sophisticated radar, BSM is designed to alert the driver to unseen vehicles in blind spots by illuminating an indicator in the appropriate exterior mirror. 

RCTA is designed to detect vehicles approaching the difficult-to-see area behind the vehicle when reversing out of a parking spot. When an approaching vehicle is detected it helps alert the driver using a buzzer and the BSM indicators in the outer mirrors.

The standard inclusion in the NX of a Reversing Camera3 is designed to provide visibility when reversing, providing guidelines3 that move with the steering wheel to predict your path.

A HELPING HAND

A HELPING HAND

When you’re fully focused on the road, the inbuilt Road Sign Assist (RSA) acts as an extra pair of eyes, designed to alert you to changes in the speed limit. The front camera is designed to detect regulatory speed signs, showing them on the multi-information display. RSA will also notify you if the vehicle exceeds the displayed speed limit + the specified threshold value.

The NX can also offer extra support when parking in crowded areas. Parking Support Brake (PKSB) as part of the sensor capabilities, is designed to apply brake force to help avoid collisions with obstacles when parking. 

 

PROTECTION FOR PASSENGERS AND PEDESTRIANS

PROTECTION FOR PASSENGERS AND PEDESTRIANS

The NX features eight strategically placed Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags as standard, intelligently armed to deploy in the event of a collision.

The body structure of the NX effectively disperses collision energy through the frame and helps to reduce distortion of the cabin. It also absorbs energy to help weaken the impact in the unlikely event of an accident.

THE CONFIDENCE OF HILL-START ASSIST CONTROL

THE CONFIDENCE OF HILL-START ASSIST CONTROL

When you're stopped on a hill, the Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)9 feature briefly applies the brakes to prevent you from rolling back when taking off, giving you a feeling of confidence and control.

ADAPTIVE HIGH BEAM SYSTEM

ADAPTIVE HIGH BEAM SYSTEM

Building on the Automatic High Beam (AHB)9 system in the Luxury grade, the F Sport and Sports Luxury grades offer the more advanced Adaptive High-beam System (AHS)9

This system can intelligently deactivate individual LED headlight sections to block high beam light in the direction of an oncoming vehicle, whilst retaining the rest of the high beam light to maintain improved vision further down the road and to the sides.

A PANORAMIC VIEW

In F Sport and Sports Luxury models, a Panoramic View Monitor (PVM)8 displays birds-eye images from cameras mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle, which assists you in checking the full area around the vehicle during parking and reversing.
