Lexus Australia has confirmed official fuel consumption figures for its new NX 300h hybrid SUV this week, ahead of its October launch.

In front-wheel-drive form, the NX 300h lists fuel use at 5.6 l/100km, with CO2 emissions rated at 131g/km. (5.7 and 133g for AWD models.)

And while not confirmed, Lexus believes the hybrid SUV will land atop its segment in the Government’s Green Vehicle Guide with a 5-star rating.

Power in the NX, which straddles the line between small and medium SUVs, is provided by a 2.5 litre petrol engine mated to an electric system that produces a combined 145kW.

In all-wheel-drive models, there’s an additional electric motor at the rear axle as part of the company’s E-Four AWD system.

That powertrain is mated to a CVT automatic transmission with six programmed ‘gears’, and Lexus claims a 0-100km/h time of 9.2 seconds.

Although not identical in dimensions - some are larger, some smaller - rivals to the NX 300h include BMW X3 xDrive20i (7.3 l/100km), the Audi Q5 2.0 TFSI quattro (7.9 l/100km), Volvo XC60 Drive-E T5 (7.0 l/100km) and Range Rover Evoque Si4 AWD (7.8 l/100km).

There are no diesel models in the NX range though, and each of the above rivals can be had in diesel form.

Those include the X3 xDrive20d (5.4 l/100km), Q5 2.0 TDI quattro (6.1 l/100km), the XC60 Drive-E D4 (4.9 l/100km) and the Evoque eD4 (4.9 l/100km).

A 175kW/350Nm turbocharged petrol version of the NX will also be offered in Australia, in the form of the NX 200t, although fuel figures for this model are still to be confirmed. Lexus Australia says it is aiming for the low 8.0 l/100km range.
