Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Lexus NX



Running costs and reliability

Lexus NX 200t Dynamic interior

In terms of powertrain choice, here’s where the NX starts to make more sense, at least if you’re a company car driver, because a CO2 figure of just 117g/km is mighty impressive, especially for a car that weighs 1,785kg and has four wheel-drive. The 55.4 combined mpg figure is equally good, but in reality you won’t get anywhere near that. We rarely saw more than early 30s on our test route – diesel rivals will trounce that. Still, at least it’s priced competitively. The hybrid starts at a tempting £29,995 and most trim levels get decent kit: the SE contains pretty much all you need, Luxury and Premier are borderline decadent. However, we’d avoid the F Sport as it a) makes it pricier and b) ruins what little ride quality the NX has in the first place.
