For a compact luxury crossover, the NX 300 is well equipped. Standard fare includes 17-inch alloy wheels, power-folding side mirrors, power-adjustable front seats, keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The steering wheel and shift knob are trimmed with leather, but the rest of the upholstery is synthetic.
To add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, buyers have to add the $980 Comfort Package, which also includes heated and ventilated front seats. However, the box for that package can't be ticked without first adding a $150 auto-dimming rearview mirror, which means the price is really $1,130.
Shoppers can get those features plus a moonroof, memory functionality, 18-inch wheels, integrated turn signal indicators, and enhanced LED daytime running lights through the Premium Package, which costs $3,270.
The $1,860 Navigation Packages brings the aforementioned 10.3-inch infotainment screen and a 10-speaker audio system, while the same features are available with a 14-speaker Mark Levinson surround sound audio system in a $2,920 package.
If buyers don't want package bundles, many of these options are available à la carte, such as the moonroof ($1,100) and heated front seats ($440).
The NX 300h hybrid starts at $40,095, and is identically equipped aside from the powertrain and standard all-wheel drive. Essentially, buyers pay a $950 premium for the hybrid powertrain over an AWD non-hybrid NX 300.
Even packages and options are the same with one exception. The gas-powered NX 300 has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds, but the hybrid requires a $160 standalone option to unlock a 1,500-pound towing capacity.
