The Lexus SUV lineup has posted their best-ever January sales result, supported by an enormous 36.2% jump in NX sales. Here’s what Lexus USA general manager had to say:

“Lexus is off to a very strong start this year. The NX, both gas and hybrid, had their best January ever, and the all-new three-row RXL is just now starting to hit dealership showrooms.”

“Combined with the launch of our fifth-generation LS and LS hybrid this month, along with the Limited Edition LC Inspiration Series and two-row LX, we’re very optimistic about the year ahead. These new models will be followed throughout the year by 10 additional new models.”
