2018 Lexus NX 300
The 2018 Lexus NX is an expressively styled and comfortable compact luxury crossover, but its mix of features faces significant new competitors this year.
In its fourth year on the market, the Lexus NX compact crossover utility vehicle gets some mild styling upgrades, additional features, and a new model name for the gasoline version. The 2018 Lexus NX 300 (known as the NX 200t in previous years) is available with front- or all-wheel drive, while the NX 300h hybrid continues with all-wheel drive as standard. Three trim levels correspond to the models: NX 300, NX 300 F Sport, and NX 300h hybrid, with a variety of options and packages that add features to each.
The newly renamed NX 300 (nee 200t) is still powered by a 235-horsepower turbocharged inline-4 that powers either the front or all four wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The NX 300h continues with a specially tuned 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine paired to Toyota’s hybrid drive system using a pair of motor-generators, with a rated maximum power of 194 hp altogether.
