The NX premium compact crossover was the first new generation Lexus model to incorporate the Japanese premium brand's new design language. For 2018, the bold and futuristic CUV receives a few styling tweaks to give it a sharper and more refined look.
Two powerplants are available for the NX, a 2.0-liter turbo engine which produces 235hp and 350Nm of torque (NX300 & NX300 F-SPORT) and a hybrid system comprised of an Atkinson-cycle 2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline mill which produces 154hp and 206Nm of torque and an electric motor that boosts total system output to 194hp (NX300h). The 2.0 turbo is mated to a 6-speed automatic, while the Hybrid gets a CVT. All NX models are offered with AWD.
