Default 2019 Lexus NX F Sport gets the Black Line treatment



Lexus is debuting a limited-production NX F Sport Black Line edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. Set to be sold for the 2019 model year only, the Black Line is essentially an appearance package with some added equipment as well Lexus previously made a Black Line version of the RC coupe with similar results.

The package takes a normal NX 300 F Sport and jazzes it up a bit. The NX in this spec is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Forged 19-inch chrome wheels and a faux carbon bodyside graphic are the main exterior changes. Only three colors will be available for the Black Line, including black, silver and the white you see here. The interior gets colors to complement the exterior, with two-tone white and black seats. A black headliner is standard, as are unique Black Line floor mats, cargo mats and key fob gloves.

Extra equipment comes in the form of a new Mark Levinson 14-speaker, 835-watt audio system. This audio setup isn't available on any other version of the NX crossover. Beyond that, the Black Line is a fully-loaded NX with nearly all of the available option boxes checked. Notable upgrades include navigation, blind-spot monitoring, heated/cooled seats, an auto-dimming mirror and moonroof.

Lexus is limiting production to 1,000 units for this special edition, which will be arriving in dealerships in February as in, right about now. It's available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The front-drive version goes for $49,600, while all-wheel drive will run you $51,000 including destination charges.

It took four years since it's debut but the NX finally has Mark Lev

Better get it in a dark color, the black arches over the wheels with a white body and giant snow plow front overhang looks horrendous.

I have honeslty disliked this Lexus design. I will say the interior is very very well made though.

My least favorite Lexus rims are chosen there.
The NX really needs a thorough redo soon. No doubt this is to spark more sales.
Agreed about the white body and black trim making things look worse.

even in Europe, few come with ML... because it adds up to cost similar to base RX I would guess.

Well U.S. doesn't have it, so it's a big deal for those wanting an upgraded sound system in the NX.

Agree, I just dropped off a loaner NX300 today after getting a recall done on my IS, it was a '19 with 400 miles on it. I was impressed with the interior, for sure. Nice design and almost everywhere you touched, top notch materials.

I was impressed with the whole vehicle, actually. Except for the god awful 4 cylinder soundtrack. Would be a deal breaker for me.

That said, I was impressed with the power of it once it got going, just sounded terrible. God awful 4 cylinder moan. And turbo lag was there, which would take getting used to.

Sharp little crossover overall, though!

Since this is a special edition, could it be to generate more foot traffic to help clear out the 19's, with a possibility of a new 2020 NX?
