Lexus NX 300h SUV (2017 - )

The NX isn’t without its attractions – not least its distinctive style and tax-friendly low CO2 emissions – but it has too many flaws that make it frustrating to live with on an everyday basis. In a fast-moving sector of the market it feels somewhat left behind by rivals, both in terms of in-car tech and lack of a plug-in hybrid or full EV option.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

For private buyers the NX’s hybrid system offers an appealing combination of petrol’s cheaper purchase costs with diesel-like economy. Indeed, owners are sufficiently happy with the NX to have voted it our Best Hybrid Car 2020 in the 2020 Auto Trader New Car Awards. The revised ‘WLTP’ measurement of CO2 emissions and mpg are, however, less optimistic than those you may have seen previously and probably closer to the reality of what you’ll get out of the NX, going by the mid-30s we saw on our test.

Hybrids have traditionally appealed to company buyers tempted by Benefit In Kind savings but these revised ratings don’t favour the NX. There is a front-wheel drive version for the basic model with slightly better stats intended to help those buyers but, frankly, the real tax savings are only really available on EVs or full plug-in hybrids like those offered by rivals. Lexus gamely markets its cars as ‘self-charging hybrids’ and they’re cheaper to buy upfront but the realities are they have been left behind by the latest legislation.
