2015 Lexus NX 200t
Lexus hit a homerun with the all-new NX, a luxury compact SUV targeted toward a younger demographic. The NX is a head-turner, a handsome SUV highlighted by the signature Lexus spindle grille, L-themed headlights and bold, sculpted body styling that should attract younger buyers. The NX 200t (Lexus also markets the NX 300h hybrid version) is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, paired to a silky-smooth six-speed automatic transmission. It’s available in front-wheel drive or all-weather drive (AWD) versions. The cabin is luxurious and comfortable, as Lexus spared no expense with premium materials and soft leathers. Cutting-edge technology is everywhere, including the comprehensive Multi-information Display that features a G-Force meter and boost gauge.
Right on: The Wireless Charging Tray for Qi compatible phones and devices is a breakthrough in smart phone convenience, allowing you to charge your phone without cables.
Price as tested: $34,505
