Lexus NX - 2 Minute Review

Published June 21, 2023 by Elizabeth Jeneault

This luxury compact SUV offers four powertrain choices and it has a fancy interior and exterior. This is the 350 AWD model, which you can now get with F SPORT Handling. You can also still get it with the plug-in hybrid model, adding even more dynamic style to the NX. Those models also feature the largest wheels ever for the NX, 20” gloss black wheels. 


The driver-focused cockpit of the interior puts everything that’s important right in front of you. There’s the Lexus Interface multimedia system with standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The touchscreen with it is either 9.8” in size, or there’s a larger 14” version. An optional Panorama Glass Moonroof and various ambient lighting themes help set the mood. And the available power folding heated rear seats add versatility.


There are two gasoline powertrains, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder for the entry-level NX 250 and a 2.4-liter turbo for this 350. Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic. The 2.4L turbo of this model makes 275 horsepower. And then you have a hybrid and plug-in hybrid to choose from, as well. The plug-in hybrid is your most powerful option, making 304 total system horsepower. It also offers 37 miles of all-electric driving range, and it goes from 0-60 in just 6.0 seconds. 


Recap and rating time now of this 2024 Lexus NX!


Exterior is sharp, 8. Interior is modern, fresh, has lovely technology, 8.5. Solid powertrain choices including hybrids and performance is amped up for the F Sport Handling models, 8.5. Fuel economy is best with the hybrid electric models, 8.5. And overall value I’ll rate another 8.5. And that results in an deal score of 84/100!
