Editor's Overview

Now in its second year, the 2016 Lexus NX compact-luxury-crossover SUV carries over virtually unchanged. That's fine with us, as the choice of turbocharged or hybrid drivetrains, surprising interior room and a luxurious driving experience, still includes a huge helping of style.

I love the sporty capability of my car.

The Lexus nx 200t f-type is a perfect sporty car for anyone. It is a wonderful family vehicle with 5 seats and very roomy trunk. It comes with beautifully stitched black and red leather seats with black carpet and not only carpet mats but weather mats as well. The car comes with modern accessories such as heated seats, bluetooth, backup camera and more.

Blind Spot Monitor included in the car is very important for safe driving.

It gives me great comfort to drive my Lexus NX. The car has a lot of safety features with the Blind Spot Monitor being my favorite. The sleek interior and easy access controls on the steering wheel make it easier to stay focused on the road. The only issue I have with the car is the Bluetooth connection. It often fails to connect.

- Fran L

It is a bit pricey but so enjoyable to drive. The dealership offers "free" food while you wait for your car to be serviced.

I like the voice commands so that I can access my cell phone and GPS without having to take my hands off the wheel. The car has XM Sirius radio that I subscribe to and enjoy. This car also has great pickup and is very easy to handle. The backup camera is something that I use every day. I do not have any complaints.
