One of the biggest changes to come out of the new 2022 NX crossover is the introduction of Lexus Interface, the brand’s new infotainment system. Here’s a video overview of the functionality:
There are multiple levels to Lexus Interface, starting with the elimination of the controversial Remote Touch controller Lexus has been using in various forms since 2009. Beyond this, there’s also the integration of most vehicle controls into the display, which then allows Lexus to remove much of the button clutter of their current models.
Despite most owners using this touchscreen as a window into their smartphone, Lexus has put much effort into the native software, allowing it to connect directly to services like Spotify & Google Maps, even offering its own custom virtual assistant.
(The hardware itself is interesting — the glass has been optically bonded to the touchscreen, eliminating much of the glare usually seen on screens in the sun.)
