The NX wants to be a sports car—you can tell by its chiseled body and angle-eyed glare—but don’t be fooled: Underneath, it’s a softy. F Sport models get a stiffer suspension, but that fails to truly sharpen the handling. A 235-hp 2.0-liter turbo four and six-speed automatic are standard; the available hybrid model returned just 27 mpg in our testing. Front-drive is standard on both models; all-wheel drive is optional. Features like a well-appointed cabin and comfy seats keep the NX in the hunt.
The NX is both a cost-effective and trendy path to Lexus ownership, and it’s proving to be a popular entry in the brand’s lineup. In 2016, 54,884 NX crossovers were sold in the U.S., roughly half the sales of its more established and larger stablemate, the RX, but 17,595 more than Lexus’s smallest sedan, the IS.
Lexus offers two versions of its littlest ute. The NX200t is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four making 235 horsepower. Its 258 lb-ft of torque routes through a six-speed automatic to either the front wheels or, as in the car we drove for this review, all four.
The NX300h model is the sole hybrid offering among luxury-subcompact crossovers and uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, two electric motors, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) to deliver a combined 194 horsepower.
A new 18-inch wheel design adds a bit of optional exterior appeal for NX200t and NX300h models while two new colors—Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0 and Molten Pearl—are available for the NX200t F Sport. The NX200t is now also known as the NX Turbo, a naming adjustment that has been applied elsewhere in the Lexus lineup, too. For versions not equipped with the optional in-dash navigation system, the NX now features Scout GPS Link as standard. The software projects turn-by-turn directions from a compatible smartphone to the 7.0-inch dashtop infotainment display.
