Toyota Boshoku Seats and Interiors Featured in New LEXUS NX 2021

January 26, 2022 -Toyota Boshoku Corporation has developed seats and interior components featured in the new LEXUS NX that was released in October 2021.

Lexus NX 2021 Front seats

Simulation technology was used to analyze and optimize the seat’s shape, resulting in the development of a well-tailored seat befitting a LEXUS. A deep-suspension structure draws the seat cover in deeply. The tension of the seat cover when seated is absorbed by the deeply suspended area, which reduces the feeling of tightness and improves cushioning by decreasing the concentration of pressure on the buttocks.
In addition, seats for the F-SPORT utilize Toyota Boshoku’s integrated Form in Place Method. Adopting a similar cross-sectional shape and structure to the LEXUS LC seats has resulted in greatly improved hold performance. The new seats are ideally suited to the performance of the F-SPORT.

Rear seat: 6/4 split folding seats (with Power-folding function)*1

The rear seats are equipped with a dual-position seatback lock mechanism that significantly reduces the number of parts and weight, thereby contributing to improved fuel economy. In addition, the newly developed electric retraction/return mechanism for the rear seats increases convenience by reducing operation time by more than 30% compared to the conventional.
There are three control switches to expand the luggage space:

  • 1. a soft switch in the touch display,
  • 2. a switch in the luggage compartment, and
  • 3. a switch on the side of the rear seat*2, all of which can be used to electrically retract or return the seat. The shoulder lever can also be used to manually retract and return.

*1 Standard equipment for NX350h Version L and NX250 Version L Factory option for NX350h F SPORT and NX350 F SPORT

*2 Switch on side of rear seat is for return only
