About Lexus NX

Lexus’ smallest luxury-crossover SUV is also one of its most popular, making the 2018 Lexus NX a resounding sales success. Not wanting to mess with a good thing, the NX gets a mild mid-cycle freshening this year, but all the elements from the original vehicle are still in place, including the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and hybrid model. Although it shares its platform with the RAV4, the two have little else in common. The NX makes a bold visual statement, touting Lexus’ somewhat polarizing spindle grille design. Inside, the NX displays a futuristic dash and instrument panel, luxurious seating options and a roomy rear seat. And while the Infiniti QX30 and Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 cost a bit less, neither offers the option of a hybrid engine.

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!!!"

"I love lexus, however I was hasty in my decision I had a 2010 RX 350 , and traded it for the 2015 NT, Its smaller, more compact and I didn't think I would notice it, but I do, I wish I would have kept with the RX. Its reliable as Lexus always is, the sport speed helps with a little more pep, One thing that is not a great value, is the fee to make the bells and whistle work on this, its 468.00 a year to have the remote application and start, ( I was not informed of this at purchase so do your homework). AZ has high vehicle license fees so after 568 for vehicle tags I decided not to purchase the 468.00 option. I was rear ended in this at 500 miles and the design of the head rest sort of made my impact a little more noticable, I had a hair clip in and it hit hard from behind, the car is fixed and as good as new, I have mixed feelings I would say if your going to make the investment into lexus its well worth it for the RX model."

Pros: "Ride quality, Lexus reliability"

Cons: "Many small annoyances, not really a drivers car"

"Have owned my NX F-Sport for 6 months now - here are my thoughts. Despite the F-Sport guise, this is not a 'drivers car' - even if Sport mode - you never forget you're in an SUV. As expected, Lexus build quality and reliability is ever present; ride quality is sublime and always hushed. The LED headlight option is pricey, but the lights are amazingly good. The interior design is snug and very attractive - ergonomics are quite good. Those with larger frames may find the sport seats a bit tight. Back seat is quite roomy. On the downside: Despite it being a $1100 option, the LED headlights do not have the auto high beam function like the standard headlights - why?? The driving mode selector always defaults to normal - so if you choose Sport or Eco, you have to do so each time you start up the vehicle. There is no auto sensing wiper feature. The computer controlling the radar cruise control is surprisingly laggy - the one I had in my Mazda was much snappier to respond. The Lane Departure Warning only has the light in the mirrors - there is no option for an audible tone. The Enform systems' touch pad is a challenge - I've tried to embrace it, but after 6 months, I can say it was a poor choice by Lexus. The voice command option for the Nav system is useless - it barely recognizes anything I say. The Enform Remote Connect is a very nice feature - but it takes a very very long time to communicate with the vehicle. And apparently if you buy this model in Canada you can get a heads-up display option - but its not available in the US - a disappointment. Overall very pleased with the vehicle, but some of these shortcomings were a bit annoying for a vehicle that was a hair under $50K."
