2016 Lexus NX Walk Around

When it comes to styling, the NX is on the aggressive end of its class. The sharply creased body features high door sills, a swept-up rear end, and an oversized version of the Lexus signature grille. The effect is angular and futuristic. The LED-accented door handles are a nice touch and practical in the dark.

NX F-Sport versions take the look-at-me theme even further with a black mesh grille face, black mirrors, and metallic lower bumper moldings. When equipped with the optional 20-inch wheels, the F-Sport looks especially rebellious.

Overall length is a tidy 183 inches. We found the NX is no more challenging to park or maneuver through traffic than a compact car.


The NX looks and feels more like a proper Lexus on the inside, highly refined and tastefully appointed. Seldom do you find such a level of interior craftsmanship on crossovers of this size. The optional leather upholstery and wood trim would look right at home in a much more expensive vehicle. The center stack and console have a distinctive Z-shape profile, which adds a dose of sportiness without going overboard. F-Sport models get eye-catching aluminum pedal covers.

The seats aren’t elevated like on other crossovers, which increases headroom and gives the sensation of driving a passenger car. The seatbacks on the optional power-folding rear seat recline independently, a valuable asset on long trips.

Instead of a rollup-type cargo cover, the NX gets a two-piece folding tonneau board for a more finished look. There’s a storage compart under the cargo floor, and an impressive array of cubbies and pockets arrayed throughout the cabin.
