2017 Lexus NX
A Solid Luxury Compact SUV
The Lexus NX is a good SUV with a well-built interior that’s nicely outfitted. It also gets high safety and predicted reliability ratings, as well as good gas mileage. It’s not a perfect vehicle, though; many rivals have more cargo space, and some are more powerful. But overall, the NX is a strong performer in the luxury compact SUV class.
The smallest of Lexus’ SUVs sets itself apart with its compact size, superior agility and, most importantly, more attractive price. All versions are equipped with all-wheel drive. The NX 200t gets a fuel-efficient, turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 235 horsepower. If you have more of a green streak, the NX 300h hybrid is also available, combining a 2.5-litre gasoline engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 194 horsepower.
