Editor's Overview

The 2017 Lexus NX small-luxury-crossover SUV hasn’t changed much from its introduction in 2015, which says a lot about just how well Lexus got the design. With its aggressive styling, powerful turbocharged engine and optional hybrid model, the Lexus NX SUV holds many advantages over the competition, although price isn’t one of them.

No need for bigger when you’ve got better! Road view, mileage, customer service,

The nix is the absolute perfect size for anyone. There’s plenty of leg room, head room & it excels in passenger comfort. The suspension is tight, so no granny ride here. Seats are enveloping, perfect for short drives and road trips. Lots of cargo space to fit most things & my favorite is the cargo nets to hold groceries. The extra amenities & attention to detail make this one of the best small SUVs I have driven. It is feels totally safe & high enough that you can see the road. Plus, you get the awesome customer service from Lexus.

Luxury, safety, and comfort. Lexus 300 f-sport.

I love my car, it is feels very sturdy while driving. It has great features such as rear-view camera, Bluetooth capabilities, powered seats, memory seats, the trunk also open and closes with the push of a button. If you love the sports car look you will love how this car looks on the outside, the sport model has unique features and looks very modern. Oh and did I mention it has a turbo? It sounds great, there are two features, the sports mode as well as the economy mode. Great car and I am very happy with it.

- Mi F

The dependable affordable Lexus.

The Lexus nx is a dynamite car. It has a peppy engine and is far more comfortable than it appears. The backseat is very comfortable with lots of legroom and space. The trunk is big and has space for luggage and golf clubs and groceries. It has zero problems and is 100% reliable and affordable. I love the backup camera and all the features. The standard package on the nx matches the most deluxe packages on a lot of other cars/SUV�s.
