Have Questions About the Lexus NX?

Lexus NX Questions

Last week, I travelled to Whistler, British Columbia, and drove the new 2015 Lexus NX in all its North American varieties: the NX 200t, NX 200t F SPORT, & NX 300h.

I can’t share much detail about my experience until next week, but thought some of you may have some questions about the NX.

Ask away in the comments, and I’ll try my best to include an answer in my review next week.

(FYI, pricing and an exact release date were not discussed during the preview event.)


  • Georgi

    Does the CVT of the 300h still feel clumsy and keep the revs high even when nod accelerationg hard? What’s the ride like?

  • Ptted

    Will the NX 300h take regular gasoline (87) like the CT 200h or premium gasoline like the RX hybrid?

  • Absolut Sabs

    How is the general handling feel with the power delivery on the 2.0T

  • Anthony

    What is the electric range of the NX 300h, still just 1 mile or something more tangible?

  • JW

    Is the ground clearance on the NX the same as a RAV 4 and does the 300h come in F sport trim?

  • Jeff

    In your short time with the 300h, what kind of mileage did the vehicle report?

  • Ponce Leon

    MPG estimates (US gallons)? What is the deal with the panoramic roof (for the US)? My dealer said it is highly unlikely we will get the heads up display in the US, any mention of that? Any mention of the US packages compared to the UK ones?

  • leopard08

    how does the turbo engine feel, is it different in feel to what we are customed to?

  • CLF

    Luxury features: will the NX have rear seat heating or rear side window blinds?

  • MT

    Does the 200t feel rough like other modern turbocharged engines like in a 3 series or is it more refined?

  • andy

    On the lexus north american website it shows the nx 300h hybrid with a half mesh grille with the led fog lamps same as the f sport. But the picture above you just posted the front grille is different and fog lamps are smaller. Basically they both nx 300h but different front facial. I read somewhere on this post that theres european version and us version 300h. We will get the one that looks like the one above. I hope its not true b.c i like the european version better. I also want to believe that north america will get the european version 300h b.c the usa lexus website shows the european version hybrid. Please i hope we can clear thia confusion out. Ive been seeing lot of 300h with the above styling here in the usa. Help!!!

  • enthusiast88

    I’m most interested in panoramic roof and 360 degree camera. Can you confirm for US market?

  • Troy Howard

    I totally, TOTALLY agree with you. I’ve been wondering that for months now. The US version is not at sexy in the front like the European one. The fog lights in the above picture are so disappointing to say the least.

  • Andrew

    is the Clari-Fi included on North American models with the mark levinson system? the official lexus press releases say they are debuting in the Asian markets.

  • leozno1

    How is the fuel economy and smoothness of the new Lexus Turbo Engine? Also what does it sound like and how is the power and delivery?

  • http://batman-news.com Jay

    Will the 200t require premium gas or regular unleaded? RX 350 uses regular unleaded so I’m hoping the NX does too.

  • wasapasserby

    Considering the last gen Rav4 had a V6 and was a hoot to drive, is an NX350 in the books?

  • Kareem

    1. Are there any real aluminum/metal/natural wood trim in 200t or 300h? Or just silver-coated plastic and artificial wood?
    2. What is the ground clearance for 200t and 300h?
    3. What is the real 0-60mph (0-100 kph) for turbo NX if tested?

    thanks from Russia!

  • FooFoo

    Can I just change the grill from standard to F-Sport style.

  • Troy Howard

    That’s what I want to know too. I hate to hear the answer… I’ve got a bad feeling.

  • Marc

    i certainly hope that USB will be an option for the US model NX200t FSPORT!!!

  • Noeh250

    Can you describe the AWD system?

  • Allen T.

    I think the above photo is the basic 200t version, not the 300h. It matches the international 200t configuration. A

  • ChrisMc

    I think the embargo may have been broken… Though I didn’t learn much…


    Looking forward to KREW’s review.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    NX 300h should take regular gas, just like the ES 300h.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Neither option will be available in the US market.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Premium gas for the NX 200t.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    My review will be broken up into two parts — a technical overview published Monday morning at 9am, and personal impressions published on Wednesday.

    Too many words for a single review!

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Neither feature is offered on the US version of the NX. Could be different in other markets.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Even a single mile would be pushing it at any real speed. No bump in pure electric range.

  • Joseph Tsai

    Will there be a 300h Fsport variant?

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Not in North America.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Don’t think it will be that simple, though it’s not something that was discussed at the press preview.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Ultrasonic Blue will be offered in the USA.

  • bernie

    Can 2 golf bags fit in back with rear seat up?

  • xyber

    Does the DRL of the premium Tri-LED headlamp look different from the DRL of the standard low-beam LED headlamp?

  • Katie

    In the US, What will the storage in the front (center console, under controls..) be like on the NX compared to the 2015 RX??
