About Lexus NX

The 2017 Lexus NX small-luxury-crossover SUV hasn’t changed much from its introduction in 2015, which says a lot about just how well Lexus nailed the design. Loosely based on the Toyota RAV4 platform, the NX brings its own powertrains that include a turbocharged 4-cylinder on the NX 200t and a 4-cylinder hybrid setup in the NX 300h. Visually, the NX is quite the standout and its fun-to-drive quotient is quite high. The small platform doesn’t seem to have hampered interior designers who have created a roomy and upscale environment worthy of the Lexus badge. You can get into a sportier Infiniti QX30 or Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class for much less, but neither of these rivals offers a hybrid option.

Love the Matador Red Mica

"My husband and I purchased this car as a Certified Pre-Owned. We previously had an RX 300 and sold it after 10 years to down size to a Mazda CX5 which I did love, but was so loud inside you couldn't carry on a normal conversation. LOVE the NX200t. The carrying capacity in the back is very small, you have to lay the back seats down to fit anything of size, like supplies from Lowes/Home Depot etc. The voice recognition is a pain to use, it often doesn't recognize simple plain speak, and the Nav system brightness never switches over to a night time mode, and stays very bright, despite the display brightness being all the way down. Other than these small, but kind of irritating items the car itself is FANTASTIC!!! It is the quietest car I have ever had the pleasure of being in. Even better than the RX 300 I previously owned! Responsive handling, good pick up, easy maneuvering and fun to drive. I have been getting about 25.5 mpg so far on the eco mode in the city. This car had all the bells and whistles at a really good price. I'm tickled to death with this car, and would recommend it hands down!!! Lexus truly has the "luxury" part of a luxury vehicle down pat!!!"

My NX 300H birthday picture

"I looked closely at the x3, RDX and Q5--the x3 struck me as costly to maintain after the 4 yr maint free ended and the RDX and Q5 seemed boring related to style. I researched the NX before it was released for sale and decided to postpone a purchase of any car until I could see and test drive the NX. I liked the nX immediately because of it's fresher and more bold styling. During the first test drive the NX seemed to be a perfect size for me (5'9) and I liked it's road handling skills. I opted for the hybrid because of the fuel economy and runs on regular gas. What I like: it's sophisticated electronics and voice controls, it's road handling, it's sharp and eye-catching design. What I don't like: the subwoofer is located in the lid of the rear hatch door; the small trunk space (space is okay with the rear seats down). My Nx 300h specs: color fire pearl agate, AWD, BSM, rear cross traffic alert, nav system, Q charger (premium and comfort packages). Fuel economy; in the approx. 1000 miles, I have been getting an average of 29 MPG mixed highway/city driving. I read a lot online about how to drive a hybrid. The NX had not been out long when I purchased it on 12/24/14--the best I could negotiate at that time was $500 off the MSRP. Have only seen one other NX on the road so far in Vacaville area of CA."

Day it came home!

"I've owned 6 cars by Lexus--this one is my favorite by far...from the incredible styling and fun-to-drive factor--I've been extremely satisfied with this purchase. As with most of my Lexus cars, I have had ZERO mechanical problems from the day that I picked it up in December (one of the first off of the transport ship) to now (I have 10,000 miles on it). I would recommend this car absolutely--tried the BMW X3--NO comparison. I have the Black (exterior) and Black and Red interior F Sort model"
