The 2018 Lexus NX gets a mild mid-cycle freshening this year, and a new name, but all the elements from the original vehicle are still in place, including the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and...

Love the autumn breeze in Florida.

2018 Lexus NX

The thing I like most is the look of the car especially the front grill. It rides very smoothly. The front seats are comfortable. However the middle seat in the second row is very stiff and uncomfortable. Lexus should find a way to keep out the road noise for a more quiet ride. I have only had the car for four months. It has been extremely reliable so far. The technology is a bit quirky especially the navigation system and screen. The audio control is a bit difficult to control when driving since the controls are in the form of a mini laptop mouse. It is difficult to keep your eyes on the road and the mouse at the same time. I also love the color of the car--autumn breeze. It is quite unique. I have received many compliments. The cream leather interior and wood detail give it a luxurious look. The cargo space is fair. It could use a bit more room for cargo especially when travelling as a family and trying to fit several large suitcases in the back. The sun visors are a bit small.

An interesting detail is the car safety features.

2018 Lexus NX NX 300

I have zero problems with the car. If I am too close to a car in front or behind me it beeps, if I am not breaking when there is a stopped car in front of me the car will take over and brake itself. My side mirrors flash of there is a car on the side of mine so I know not to switch lanes yet. All of these things make me feel very safe with my son in the car. The seats are very comfortable. I love the sunroof. Perfect amount of trunk space. We opted for the car starter and we can start the car from our phones anywhere we are. We can also lock, unlock, open the trunk, and find the vehicle from our phones.

Sporty surprise. Resisted buying this model for 5 years and wish I hadn't.

2018 Lexus NX

My car is a sporty version. I really like the sporty interior, black and silver. I had the more luxurious lx version before this one. I didn't think I would like it, but I really enjoy the sporty feel when I drive. The navigation system is upgraded. It is all voice activated. The computer technology is very comprehensive and easy to use. It is very roomy inside and the back seat is very comfortable. It is a little smaller than the lx, but that does not really matter. I took the same load to the shore for a month as I did in the lx. It is a hybrid which ensures excellent gas mileage.
