Lexus NX Sports Luxury 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
7
The Lexus NX range tops out with the Sports Luxury offering, which sits above the Luxury and F Sport models in the lineup.

The Lexus NX range tops out with the Sports Luxury offering, which sits above the Luxury and F Sport models in the lineup. It's an AWD-only offering, and will set you back $73,800 for the NX 300 and $76,300 for the NX 300h.

The 300-badged cars arrive with a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, producing 175kW at 4800rpm and 350Nm at 1650rpm and paired with a six-speed automatic driving all four wheels. The 300h models get a 2.5-litre engine that pairs with two electric motors, and a CVT auto.

You'll also get the same variable suspension setup as the F Sport cars, but also add some cool kit, like a leather-trimmed interior, a full-colour head-up display and a 14-speaker Mark Levinson stereo. You'll also find a moonroof (which is a sunroof, only fancier sounding). All up, that's about $8500 worth of bonus kit. 

Every NX now gets the Lexus 'Safety System+' package as standard, which includes AEB, active cruise and a lane-departure-warning system, along with blind-spot motoring, rear cross-traffic alert, trailer sway control and an upgraded reversing camera with a new widescreen mode.
