2020 Lexus Nx300 Review Australia

 

There is a big demand for Crossovers in Australia, so it is not surprising that this luxurious Lexus segment is booming right now. Lexus gives tough competition to its renowned rivals, including BMW and Acura. The powertrain may not be anything to write home about, but the front-wheel drive is standard across the range, which competes for most rivals. Also, every model gets access to an all-wheel drivetrain. In addition, in any trim level, there is no lack of tech and safety features as the Lexus has the perfect safety and dependability ratings.

 

2020 Lexus Nx300 engine:

The 2020 Lexus NX300 comes with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 175kW of power and 350 Nm of torque. It is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, and there is the option of either front- or all-wheel drive.

 

On the other hand, the 2020 Lexus NX300h comes with a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 114kW of power and 210 Nm of torque. It is coupled with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT), a nickel-metal hydride battery and either one or two electric motors. It is also available with either front-wheel drive, producing 105kW and 270 Nm, and all-wheel-drive that produces 50kW and 139 Nm. 

 

2020 Lexus Nx300 exterior:

The exterior of the Lexus NX 300 comes with a bold and beautiful design. It has enormous wheel arches that house 17-inch alloys. The 2020 Lexus incorporates LED headlights, fog lights, and daytime running lights that are mounted on the front fascia.  The large spindle hourglass grille on the 2020 Lexus Nx300 takes up most of the space and almost conceals the Lexus logo. This design is loved by some and hated by others! 

 

On the other hand, the top-level F Sport’s exterior alters the wheels with 18-inch alloys. It also adds on enhanced LED daytime running lights. Other exterior features that the F Sport include are black-accented mirrors and an F Sport fascia. The fascia has a front fender and a mesh grille insert. The tailgate also comes with a badging. Other than that, the top trim also includes a power sunroof.

 

2020 Lexus Nx300 interior:

Buying a Lexus implies that you are going to get what you are paying for. Although there are pricier options in the compact crossover segment available on the market, yet the NX 300 is the best one to choose. It is a remarkably well-built and appointed crossover. It comes standard with synthetic leather upholstery, and one can also upgrade to genuine leather. It is almost impossible to find any odd piece of hard plastic because all that you are going to get is soft-touch surfaces. Although the Lexus NX is pretty tall, it is easy to get in and out of it because of its crossover design.

 

The styling of the interior is classy and refined. The layout of the controls is also placed with much thought, and every control is easy to reach. Also, the power-adjustable front seats make finding the optimal seating position even easier.  The cabin is also very spacious, so there is no lack of room. Only the higher trim’s rear seats may feel congested as the moonroof may eat a few inches, and the sloppy roofline makes it a little claustrophobic.  

 

It is a compact SUV, but the 2020 NX 300 can comfortably seat five passengers. The front and rear seats supply plenty of head- and legroom. The seats are incredibly comfortable as they offer plenty of support both on the front as well as in the back. Every trim comes with a ten-way power driver's seat as standard. 

 

In contrast, the passenger seat provides eight directions of adjustability. The F Sport trim adds on the extra bolster to the front seats; this helps to improve support and encourages more spirited driving.
