The Lexus NX 200t: the Name in Luxury and Comfort
The Lexus NX 200t is a compact SUV built for comfort, room, and luxury. It boldly goes where no crossover has gone before, with 235 hp and from 0 to 60 mph in just seven seconds. A Lexus-first 2.0L turbocharged engine also delivers dynamic performance, and all with a class-leading 33 mpg.
Though many would compare it to other compact SUVs like the X1, Evoque, or GLA 250, the NX 200t sits at the bigger end of the group and wins out for its value, room, comfort, and of course, the unbeatable luxury of Lexus.
Compared to the GLA, which is more of a subcompact (or a tall hatchback) than a compact crossover, the Lexus NX 200t is much larger and roomier, with superior horsepower. Power delivery is also much smoother and more robust, feeling more stable and solid on the road. And with price points within $100 of one another, the NX gives you much more comfort and legroom to enjoy than the GLA. It is, after all, a Lexus – and for Lexus, luxury is key.
The Lexus NX 200t also has a bold design to match its enhanced performance, with a unique front bumper, grille insert, aluminum door sills, and your choice of two 18-in F SPORT alloy wheels. And of course, the NX features the famous Lexus LED checkmark headlights.
With a power rear door, the NX offers remote keyless access for ultimate convenience – it can also be raised and lowered from inside the car. Up top, carrying capacity expands with sleek, solid roof rails.
Quick transmission, sharp steering, and adaptive cruise control make for an especially smooth ride, and despite its powerful engine, the NX is certainly one of the quietest SUVs on the highway.
Inside, the all-new remote touchpad allows smartphone-inspired movements, even including a built-in smartphone charger. The dynamic 4.2-inch multi-information display is all elegant silver and black, giving you a clear read on NX vitals. Electrochromic heated mirrors both outside and in the rearview put visibility first. And as always, elite Lexus Enform features, Blind Spot Monitor, and a backup camera can be added for extra peace of mind.
Sleek and modern interior design features ambient lighting and an expansive moonroof, and the automatic climate-control system also boasts dual-zone control and an interior air filter. Customizable settings make every detail your own, with a memory system that even accommodates the individuality of two different drivers. Power-folding and reclining heated NuLuxe seats of supple perforated leather are all part of the luxury, and they’re even in the back seat too!
With spacious rear-seat legroom and cargo room, the NX is at the bigger end of the growing new class of compact luxury SUVs. Its height and large windows provide the best visibility of its kind, also supplying ample headroom for taller drivers.
