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.)


  1. Does the CVT of the 300h still feel clumsy and keep the revs high even when nod accelerationg hard? What's the ride like?
  2. Will the NX 300h take regular gasoline (87) like the CT 200h or premium gasoline like the RX hybrid?
  3. How is the general handling feel with the power delivery on the 2.0T
  4. What is the electric range of the NX 300h, still just 1 mile or something more tangible?
  5. JW

    Is the ground clearance on the NX the same as a RAV 4 and does the 300h come in F sport trim?
  6. In your short time with the 300h, what kind of mileage did the vehicle report?
  7. 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?
  8. how does the turbo engine feel, is it different in feel to what we are customed to?
  9. CLF

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

    Does the 200t feel rough like other modern turbocharged engines like in a 3 series or is it more refined?
  11. 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!!!
    • 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.
    • I think the above photo is the basic 200t version, not the 300h. It matches the international 200t configuration. A
  12. I'm most interested in panoramic roof and 360 degree camera. Can you confirm for US market?
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. Jay

    Will the 200t require premium gas or regular unleaded? RX 350 uses regular unleaded so I'm hoping the NX does too.
  16. Considering the last gen Rav4 had a V6 and was a hoot to drive, is an NX350 in the books?
  17. 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!
  18. owned one of the most beautiful cars lexus is the dream of many people. http://www.friv3gaming.com | http://www.kizi10game.com
  19. Can I just change the grill from standard to F-Sport style.
  20. i certainly hope that USB will be an option for the US model NX200t FSPORT!!!
  21. Can you describe the AWD system?
  22. I think the embargo may have been broken... Though I didn't learn much... http://driving.ca/lexus/reviews/road-test/suv-review-2015-lexus-nx Looking forward to KREW's review.
    • 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!
  23. Will there be a 300h Fsport variant?
  24. Can 2 golf bags fit in back with rear seat up?
  25. Does the DRL of the premium Tri-LED headlamp look different from the DRL of the standard low-beam LED headlamp?
  26. In the US, What will the storage in the front (center console, under controls..) be like on the NX compared to the 2015 RX??
