Aggressive Styling In A Premium SUV In its fourth year, the 2018 Lexus NX 300h has proven itself as a comfortable driving, compact crossover utility vehicle, offering best-in-class fuel economy.

Drivetrain The all-wheel drive 2018 Lexus NX 300h is powered by a parallel hybrid drivetrain, the Lexus Hybrid Synergy Drive. In a parallel hybrid system, the electric motor can power the car by itself, the gas engine can power the car by itself or they can power the car together.

With most vehicles that require premium gasoline, owners don't have much choice: Either they use the more expensive, higher-octane gas or they risk losing performance or even damaging their engine. But the 2018 Lexus NX 300, a participant in our recent 2018 Luxury Compact SUV Challenge, offers a different choice: either a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that burns premium or a hybrid model that uses regular — and gets higher mileage.

Said to add “extra dynamic style appeal to the NX 300h”, a new Sport version has joined Lexus’ compact crossover range in the United Kingdom. It features a series of black exterior details, such as the horizontal bars, spindle grille frame and side mirror casings, alongside the new 18-inch alloys, with a dark and bronze two-tone finish. Inside, the new NX 300h Sport gets standard silver trim inlays, although customers can also opt for a black finish with Tahara leather-like upholstery, like on the SE model. The black upholstery with white contrast stitching on the seats and instrument panel is available as well, and it’s unique to the Sport.

What we can say, however, is that Toyota and its luxury brand Lexus appear to have cracked the formula for full “self-charging” (that is, non plug-in) hybrids as far as reliability is concerned. You only need ask a Prius owner to confirm as much, or indeed anybody who has run the subject of today’s test, a Lexus NX300h. This mid-size SUV, which was launched in 2014, has never threatened the German class leaders for driving dynamics, but as far as owners are concerned it’s still the bee’s knees. As evidence of as much it finished first for reliability and build quality in the 2018 Auto Express Driver Power survey, and sixth in the overall results. Indeed, it would have ranked higher still were it not for poor scores in categories concerning fuel economy and the infotainment system. The potentially good news is that … [Read more...] about 2018 Lexus NX 300h review: the reliably reliable hybrid SUV
