Editor's Overview

The 2015 Lexus NX is a new compact-luxury crossover SUV from the same people who virtually invented the whole idea of a luxury-crossover SUV. With either a turbocharged 4-cylinder or hybrid powertrain, the Lexus NX offers surprising interior room and a luxurious driving experience, with a huge helping of style.

An unexpected gem found in the Lexus nx 200t.

The Lexus nx 200t has been an unexpected surprise. No major issues after 3 years, safe, reliable and convenient. Love that I can control the vehicle from my cell phone. Favorite features include rear view camera, interior and exterior lighting and the blind spot monitor. In 3 years have only needed to change oil 6 times. Had one issue with a safety recall that was resolved, though the dealership was very slow to resolve. Nothing to do with the vehicle. Great purchase and well worth the investment.

- Jane T

The NX200T is a smaller SUV that offers tons of luxury and is a great vehicle for a mom like me trying to stay cool while going around town!

I currently drive a Lexus NX200t that I love! It has sporty red leather interior and is the sport package with the sportier grill. I love all of the advanced features and the ride is smooth. The only thing I dislike would be the space but it is only because I now have a child that I did not have when I initially purchased the car. It has great space for everyday, but difficult to use for family trips with car seats.

- Tara M

I love my lexis it is the best car I have ever had.

My Lexus is great the only service I have had done on it was all regular oil changes and rotating the tires the inside is lovely leather and the seats are multi way adjustable I love the heated and cooled seats the storage area is big enough for a few overnight bags soap taking a trip is really easy fuel mileage is great I get over 30 miles a gallon and I love being able to fill up the tank for less than $30.
