Lexus Australia has adjusted the asking price of its NX mid-size SUV as part of a wider range price readjustment.

    UPDATE, 28/08/2023 – Lexus has released an updated statement regarding its price protected orders. We have updated this statement and included it below.

    “Customer orders taken up until May 31st and built during May are protected from the GPI. Vehicles ordered or built from June 1st are subject to the GPI,” a spokesperson from Lexus Australia told CarExpert.

    Certain Lexus NX variants have had their asking price increased by up to $850, whereas others had the price reduced by up to $680.

    The 2023 Lexus NX range now starts at $62,275 before on-roads for the NX 250 2WD, and extends to $90,948 before on-roads for the NX 450h AWD F Sport plug-in hybrid (PHEV).

    It’s worth noting the latter still can’t be ordered, with customers only able to place an expression of interest for the vehicle as Lexus clears its backlog of the variant.

    A Lexus Australia spokesperson told CarExpert the new pricing reflects Luxury Car Tax (LCT) adjustments and “general price increases”.

    The luxury car tax threshold increased in July 2023. Fuel efficient vehicles that produce less than 7.0L per 100km and are priced under $89,332 are now exempt from LCT.

    Vehicles that fall outside the fuel consumption threshold and are priced less than $76,950 will also be LCT exempt.
