The Media and the All-New 2015 Lexus NX

Published on August 18 2015

The perfect combination of fuel economy, interior space, design, and performance.

What the 2015 Lexus NX Has to Offer

With the brand new 2015 NX, Lexus is going full steam ahead into the compact SUV segment where the Japanese automaker plans to distance itself from the competition using its stunning looks, technology-packed interior, choice of powerful and fuel-efficient engines, and a lot more.

Starting at $41,450, the 2015 Lexus NX is offered in two versions: the NX 200t and the NX 300h. The latter is the hybrid version of the NX, and therefore the most fuel-efficient with an average fuel economy rating of around 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers. Starting at $ 59,450, the Lexus NX 300h is the perfect combination of fuel economy, interior space, design, and performance.

We have already published a detailed story on the Lexus NX that you can read here.

The Media and its Take on the 2015 Lexus NX

The media seemed to have enjoyed the NX as well. Here is a sample of what they had to say!

The product planning folks at Lexus are well known for the luxurious look and feel they manage to bless each of their vehicle’s interiors with. The cabin of the NX is no exception as it is very refined and all the comfort, convenience and safety features expected in a premium model are present and accounted for. Sliding into the firm and supportive bucket seat you will notice that the thick-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel is wrapped in high quality leather and its column is adjustable both fore and aft. Steering assist is light enough that the driver always feels in control. I found most of the switchgear and controls to be easy to both see and reach, and the optional Heads Up Display (HUD) ensured that I was able to keep my eyes on the road ahead when conditions demanded all of my attention – Driving.ca

Take a Toyota RAV4, beef it up, strengthen it, add a bit of length, fill it with technology and a high-class interior and what have you got? The absolutely stunning Lexus NX 200t, a crossover for people who don’t need a fuel-guzzling trailer-tugging behemoth.

In short, it’s a fun drive.

At night, the LED high beams light up an impressive swath of highway and the automatic dimming lowers the intensity before oncoming traffic can get impatient.

The NX is a right-sized crossover, perfect for a family with enough cargo space to carry a weekend’s worth of stuff and enough width to carry golf clubs crosswise. There’s 17.66 cu. ft. of space behind the rear seat and 54.54 cu. ft. with the second row seatbacks folded.

That aside (and thank God for buttons), the cockpit of the 2015 Lexus NX 200t is a pleasant place to be. I adore the simplicity of the gauge cluster, and the steering wheel is chunky and comfortable to hold. While some may find the quarters a bit tight, I enjoyed the cocooned feel it gave. All surfaces are soft-touch, with ample padding on the side arm rest and centre arm rest (which also houses a wireless charging tray, compatible with everything but iPhones…). Oh, there’s even a little mirror you can pluck out of the middle - Auto123.com
