Overview

What's New

Since the Lexus NX arrived as a fully redesigned vehicle in 2022, it only gets light changes for 2024. The compact is now available with a few new interior colors. Lexus has introduced a new remote parking feature for the NX350h and NX450h+ models. Lastly, the NX450h+ F Sport is now offered with a regular sunroof or a panoramic sunroof.

These changes don’t do a lot to change the NX’s placement in the segment, but the compact luxury SUV is still a solid all-rounder.

Choosing Your Lexus NX

Lexus offers the NX in six trims: NX 250, NX 350, NX 350 F Sport Handling, NX 350h Hybrid, NX 450h+, and NX 450h+ F Sport Handling. While the NX’s lineup can be confusing to comprehend, there is some method to the extensive lineup. The NX 250 and NX 350 are gas-powered SUVs, the NX 350h is a hybrid, and the NX 450h+ is a plug-in hybrid.

Pricing for the gas-powered NX 250 starts at $40,205 and goes up to $49,065. The NX 350h Hybrid costs $43,805. The NX 450h+ PHEV starts at $58,655 and goes up to $59,906.

Engine Choices

We think the turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the NX 350 is a great option for most people, seeing as how it delivers 75 more horsepower and 133 more pound-feet of torque. Plus, it comes with a standard AWD. But for drivers wanting better fuel economy, the NX 350h Hybrid’s powertrain is an appealing choice. Fuel economy runs from 25 mpg combined for the NX 350, and tops out at 36 mpg and 84 mpge for the NX 450h+.

Engine TypeTrim LevelHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-CylinderNX 250203 hp184 lb-ft28 mpg
2.4L Turbo 4-CylinderNX 350275 hp317 lb-ft25 mpg
2.5L 4-Cylinder HybridNX 350h240 hpNot Rated39 mpg
2.5L 4-Cylinder Plug-in HybridNX 450h+304 hpNot Rated84 MPGe, 36 mpg

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The NX offers seating for up to five people across two rows of seats. The compact SUV has 22.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and a total of 46.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Because of the way Lexus’ engineers packaged the NX’s electrified components, the NX 350h Hybrid, and NX 450h+ PHEV have the same cargo capacity as gas-powered models.

Safety Features

The Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 is standard on every NX trim. The suite includes features like automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, traffic sign recognition, vehicle exit warning, and automatic high-beam assist.

Lane change assist, a surround-view parking camera, and a front cross-traffic alert are available for $1,070. A 10-inch head-up display is available on its own as a $1,100 option. These features are offered on the NX 250 and NX 350.

The NX 350h Hybrid is also available with park assist for $480.

Connectivity

The standard NX 250 comes with a 9.8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, an HD Radio, two USB ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot, 10 audio speakers, and a “Hey Lexus” virtual assistant.

A larger 14-inch touchscreen is available as a $1,205 option. It also includes cloud-connected navigation. A 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system is $2,225 and requires the $3,050 Premium Package. A wireless charging pad and a digital key are available for $450.

2024 Lexus NX 250 – MSRP From $40,205

The NX 250 is one of the more well-equipped entry-level compact SUVs on the market. It comes with LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, roof rails, and 18-inch wheels.

On the inside, the SUV comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, push-button start, and keyless entry.

The major package for the NX 250 is the Premium Package which costs $3,050. It comes with ventilated front seats, black prism interior trim, a moonroof, a power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and memory settings for the driver’s seat, mirrors, and steering wheel.

Noteworthy standalone options include a power liftgate ($400), a moonroof ($1,100), a heated steering wheel ($250), a digital rearview mirror ($200), and rain-sensing windshield wipers ($125).

2024 Lexus NX 350h Hybrid – MSRP From $43,805

For 2024, the NX 350h Hybrid is now more affordable than the 350. It comes with a more efficient hybrid powertrain over the NX 250 but shares a lot of the same standard and optional features.

2024 Lexus NX 350 – MSRP From $43,965

The sporty NX 350 gets a major engine upgrade over the base NX 250. It features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and standard AWD. It also gains active noise cancellation on top of the NX 250’s list of standard features.

The NX 350 is available with the $6,140 Luxury Package. It adds perforated leather upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat, a 10-inch heads-up display, a 14-inch touchscreen, door courtesy lamps, wood trim, ambient interior lighting, heated and ventilated seats, auto-dimming mirrors, a moonroof, a power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, bi-LED adaptive headlights, and park assist.

2024 Lexus NX 350 F Sport Handling – MSRP From $49,065

Drivers looking for an NX 350 with sportier handling should explore the F Sport Handling trim. The trim includes adaptive sport-tuned suspension, 20-inch wheels, a sporty body kit, and aluminum interior trim. It builds off of the NX 350’s features with a heads-up display and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The available F Sport Handling Luxury Package includes a power liftgate, heated and ventilated front sport seats, ambient interior lighting, adaptive bi-LED headlights, memory settings for the driver’s seat, exterior mirrors, and steering wheel.

2024 Lexus NX 450h+ – MSRP From $58,655

Making the step up to the NX 450h+ PHEV represents a dramatic jump in pricing compared to lower models. On top of the plug-in hybrid powertrain, the trim comes with all of the features from the Luxury Package as standard.

2024 Lexus NX 450h+ F Sport Handling – MSRP From $59,906

The range-topping NX 450h+ F Sport Handling merges the punchy plug-in hybrid powertrain with the upgraded suspension and design of the F Sport Handling trim. The F Sport Handling Luxury Package is standard.

CarsDirect Tip

Choosing the right powertrain for the 2024 Lexus NX will be the most difficult choice. The NX 350 and NX 350h Hybrid stand out as the best two options for most people. The turbo engine delivers a good balance of performance for the price, while the hybrid engine has more power than the base NX 250 and gets impressive fuel economy. They’re both similarly priced to one another, but one delivers added performance and the other focuses on fuel economy. We like the convenience and feature content that’s included with the Luxury Package, as adding that is all you really need.

Putting the cross in crossover. There is a dwindling but still significant subset of car buyers who dislike SUVs, and Lexus’s NX makes no concessions to these detractors. A rather cross-looking external design includes a goatee grille, complex LED headlamps, and a light-bar rear end. Looking as handsome in sober paint colors as more vibrant ones, it’s a well-sculpted design that places few compromises on its interior. Just look at how the side windows slope down while the roof stays high, maximizing rear headroom and cargo capacity.

A key benefit of SUVs has always been internal space, and the 22.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity more than doubles once the rear seats drop down. It’s a squash for three adults back here, but there’s no sense of claustrophobia and heads won’t be brushing against the roof lining even if knees are touching the front seat backs. These will likely be clad in synthetic leather that’s almost as tactile as the real thing – though a lot more environmentally friendly.

Kit on the side. As well as being spacious and impressively well-assembled, the NX’s interior is also generously appointed. Base models kick off with a ten-speaker stereo and a 9.8-inch infotainment touchscreen for $40,205, while 350 and 350h models can be upgraded with a $3,050 package that brings self-parking and ventilated seats alongside a sunroof and power tailgate. We’d skip the $1,200 upgrade to a 14-inch touchscreen – it looks great but compromises practicality by incorporating climate controls that are button-operated lower down the range.

The NHTSA has yet to smack an NX into a concrete block, but the IIHS has awarded it top marks. Driver safety aids include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise, road sign recognition, and active lane control. It’s disappointing to see blind-spot monitoring on the options list, especially since the smaller Lexus UX has it across the range. If you want features like a Mark Levinson audio system or a head-up display, you can add them to your NX and keep the sticker price below $50,000. We certainly wouldn’t be spending $60,000 on the flagship NX 450h+ Luxury model.

Lexus NX

The power and the story. The NX range has three main engine configurations, including gas, hybrid, and plug-in variants. First out of the gate is the FWD 250 model (AWD is optional) with its 203 hp 2.5-liter gas engine. Its silky eight-speed automatic transmission recurs in the 350, whose 275 hp output comes from a smaller engine bolstered by a turbo, making it better suited to overtaking. The lowercase h suffix denotes a hybrid, whose economy gains are counterbalanced by the introduction of a tedious CVT transmission. The latter is also bolted onto the flagship 450h+ plug-in model, which can cover 37 miles on electric power only. Combined fuel economy in the mid-30s beats the 25 returned by standard 350 models, while the 250 will manage 28 regardless of how many wheels are being driven. All hybrids are AWD, with their electric motor sitting over the rear axle, and extensive sound-deadening helps to silence even high-speed journeys.

A criticism often leveled at SUVs is that they’re joyless to drive, and the cap fits with the NX. The steering is bereft of feel and the car leans noticeably in corners, a result of soft suspension that does at least mitigate against choppy road surfaces. F Sport models introduce adaptive dampers that improve matters but at a significant financial cost. Speaking of which, it’s worth noting that the 350h is fractionally cheaper than the standard 350, and a full $15,000 less expensive than the 450h plug-in hybrid.

What’s it like behind the wheel? While the NX’s rear seats are comfortable (if hardly spacious), the best seat in the house is found up front. A well-bolstered seat faces a steering wheel that’s less button-heavy than some competitors, with a large touchscreen angled towards the driver while minor switchgear faces forwards in a hooded binnacle. A large asymmetric central armrest is also driver-oriented, and forward visibility is excellent even if views to the rear leave much to be desired. Everything is plastic – you won’t find polished wood or leather in any NX – but it’s tactile enough and screwed together to the standards you’d expect from Lexus. The four-year warranty is unlikely to be called upon.

Final thoughts. We said at the outset that some people remain hostile to SUVs, and in truth, the NX won’t make any new converts. Its looks might tempt a few waverers, but its woolly road manners demonstrate the challenges of making a tall and heavy vehicle feel agile. The NX’s inert steering compounds matters, and we question why hybrid models are lumbered with a CVT transmission when the eight-speed automatic box fitted to gas engines is so creamy.

Despite their superior fuel economy, we’d give h-branded NXs a swerve in favor of conventionally powered models. The 350 is our pick of the range, offering the best blend of comfort, performance, equipment, and refinement. Add in solid residual values, a generous warranty, and the usual Lexus build quality, and it’s a car you’ll respect hugely – as long as driving pleasure isn’t on your priorities list.
