Lexus has compiled two distinct packages of premium features to create special edition variants of its strong-selling NX and 5-seat RX SUVs.
The specia -edition NX Crafted and RX Crafted are fitted with exterior and interior enhancements that build on the Luxury grade of the relevant models.
Lexus NX Crafted
NX Crafted is available in 2WD and AWD NX 300 petrol turbo and NX 300h self-charging hybrid variants.
The Crafted variants’ panoramic view monitor can provide an uninterrupted 360-degree view of the vehicle surrounds, including a “see-through function” that displays the image as though looking through a clear vehicle – particularly useful for parking and in tight manoeuvres.
Further distinguishing NX Crafted vehicles are unique black 18-inch alloy wheels with brightly machined surfaces for each of the five double spokes.
The black-accented treatment continues with selected exterior parts – including the front grille and mirror caps.
Lexus has completed the value-laden NX Crafted package with illuminated “Lexus” front-door scuff plates and a smart key card – a keyless entry system that allows the driver to lock and unlock the doors, open the boot and start the car without having to remove the key from their pocket.
Nine exterior colours are available, including Carnelian – a red hue that is now available across the NX range. NX Crafted buyers have the choice of black or rich cream premium interiors with silver film ornamentation.
The NX Crafted is now available in a special offer of $62,888 drive-away for the NX 300 2WD Crafted.

Lexus RX Crafted
RX Crafted brings together an even more extensive line-up of enhancements for the RX 300 turbo, RX 350 V6 and RX 450h self-charging hybrid.
Exterior updates are black 20-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic moonroof with front tilt and slide, and black accents for the grille, fog-lamp bezels, mirror caps and rear bumper.
Interior ambience is heightened with a colour head-up display, 12.3″ high-definition infotainment screen (upgraded from 8-inch), a premium 15-speaker Mark Levinson sound system and front-door projector courtesy lamps.
RX Crafted is available in same colours as the Luxury grade, with black and ivory trims.
These additional up-market features for RX Crafted are being offered from $79,888 drive-away for the RX 300 Crafted.
