Lexus NX F Sport 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7
The F Sport trim marks the middle point in the Lexus NX family, above the entry-level Luxury and below the top-spec Sports Luxury models

The F Sport trim marks the middle point in the Lexus NX family, above the entry-level Luxury and below the top-spec Sports Luxury models. Available with a choice of turbocharged (300) or hybrid (300h) engines, it'll set you back $60,800 for the NX 300 and $63,300 for the NX 300h in two-wheel drive, and $65,300 and $67,800 respectively for the equivalent AWD versions.

For that money you'll add new variable suspension (a system borrowed from the Lexus LC500), along with four driving modes and performance dampers at the rear. Inside, expect new paddle shifters, leather-trimmed sports seats, metal pedals and new scuff plates. A wireless phone charger, head-up display, heated and cooled front seats and better multi-LED headlamps as arrive as standard, too. 

The 300-badged cars sport a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine producing 175kW at 4800rpm and 350Nm at 1650rpm and paired with a six-speed automatic. The 300h use a 2.5-litre engine good for 114kW at 5700rpm, pairing with one (or two, in the AWD cars) electric motor that lifts total output to 147kW and 270Nm and a CVT auto

Safety stuff is top class, too, with AEB, active cruise and lane-departure warning joining blind-spot motoring, rear cross-traffic alert, trailer sway control and an upgraded reversing camera with a new widescreen mode on the standard features list.
