What's on this page

Lexus NX

Although the Lexus NX shares its mid-size SUV platform with the Toyota RAV4, it has much loftier aspirations.

Introduced in 2015, the NX has become one of Lexus’s top selling nameplates. It competes alongside rivals in the premium segment like the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Jaguar F-Pace and Audi Q5.

Currently the NX ranges from the $57,500 NX NX300 Luxury (fwd) to the $79,088 NX NX300H Sports Luxury Hybrid (awd).

The NX has always been available with parent company Toyota’s Hybrid tech on at least one variant in the range. The NX was available from launch with either a 2.0-litre turbo or a 2.5-litre hybrid, both petrol in front- or all-wheel drive.

Lexus NX Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Lexus NX here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • NX200t steering wheel damage

    It seems off that the steering wheel should be heavily worn in such a short time, which suggests that there is a design or production quality issue with it. I suggest you check as many other NX200t cars as you can find to see if it is a common problem, and make a direct approach to Lexus for help in replacing the wheel.

  • Good pick for new SUV?

    There are lots of fresh contenders in that class, including the Porsche Macan — which has an 18-month waiting list. The pick is the Land Rover Discovery Sport. I give it The Tick and rate it well ahead of the NX for comfort, quietness and class.
