Some reviews of the 2017 Lexus NX
August 31 2017,
The 2017 Lexus NX is coming back this year with no major changes, but we had to expect that a bit given that the Lexus compact entry-level luxury SUV is still pretty new to the market. With its aggressive style that is also refined, the Lexus NX never fails to turn heads, but it is once inside that you realize all it has to offer.
Indeed, the Lexus NX offers several versions, and several engines also, including a hybrid engine that offers an impressive fuel consumption rating of just 7.0 liters per 100 kilometers in the city. This is quite impressive for a vehicle that offers up to 1,500 liters of cargo space but is also able to offer upscale technologies and a very high-end cockpit for just over $ 42,000.
So it's not surprising that the media are very fond of the 2017 Lexus NX. Here are some comments collected from road tests conducted by some American automotive publications.
Lexus offers two versions of its littlest ute. The NX200t is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four making 235 horsepower. Its 258 lb-ft of torque routes through a six-speed automatic to either the front wheels or, as in the car we drove for this review, all four. For buyers seeking a bit more attitude, an F Sport model adds a sport-tuned suspension, a more aggressive grille, sport seats, and a g-force meter in the driver’s information display. The NX300h model is the sole hybrid offering among luxury-subcompact crossovers and uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, two electric motors, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) to deliver a combined 194 horsepower – Car & Driver
Introduced two years ago, the NX 200t represents a different type of Lexus crossover SUV. It's sharply styled and possesses a much sportier driving experience than the Lexus norm. Its size is also distinctive. It's a little bigger than most other new-breed subcompact luxury crossover SUVs but smaller than more established compacts. Unchanged, though, are the Lexus trademarks of an ultra-smooth engine, a quiet cabin, superior quality and a reputation for excellent reliability – Edmunds.com
The 2017 Lexus NX 200t is a solid luxury compact SUV with a price that’s lower than many of its competitors. The NX deserves a look from shoppers who want a value-oriented and well-rounded daily driver or family car. US News
