Lexus's NX 300 comes with a new feature that will allow you to open the rear door without having to use your hands. Whether your hands are full with the grocery bags or the kids' soccer equipment, the Lexus NX 300 provides a much more convenient way to access the trunk. With a slight kick of your foot, the door opens automatically. Here is to use the tailgate kick sensor in the Lexus NX 300.

For owners of the Lexus NX 300, the feature of a tailgate kick sensor provides convenience and ease-of-use when needing to open the vehicle's rear door. The Lexus NX 300's tailgate kick sensor works in conjunction with the owner's key fob. So the first requirement in order to activate the sensor is to have the Lexus key fob somewhere in your possession. Most people will probably have the keys in their pockets. Once you are in range, the sensor will detect the key fob, allowing you to move on to the next step.

The second step is what makes this kick sensor such an innovative feature. Once you are in range with the key fob on your person, you can lift your foot and swiftly kick under the center of the car's rear. It's not required for you to touch the vehicle or the sensor. As long as your foot moves somewhere underneath the sensor, the car will open its rear door automatically for you. The door will not open if the key fob is not within the detectable range of the tailgate kick sensor.

After the rear sensor has detected your foot, the door will open, requiring you to do the final step. When the door opens, all you must do is step back from the vehicle. The tailgate kick sensor on the Lexus NX 300 will not open the rear door dangerously quickly. Though it is recommended that you remain cautious of the trunk opening to avoid any injury, especially if your hands are full. It is also prudent to make sure that other passengers, especially small children who may be unaware, are clear of the rear area when using the tailgate kick sensor.

Using the tailgate kick sensor on the Lexus NX 300 is a simple and efficient way to access the NX 300's cargo space. If you wish to learn more about this feature, please contact us or visit our dealership today.
