Road & Track Drives the 2015 Lexus NX

Lexus NX Road & Track

Ben Stewart of Road & Track has published his first impressions of the 2015 Lexus NX:

It may not be as aggressive as other F Sport models, but the NX 200t F Sport is still the one you want. It gets beefy strut tower braces that aren’t like any you’ve ever seen before. Instead of a solid length of steel, aluminum, or carbon fiber, there’s actually a small, fluid-filled shock absorber in the center of the bar to act as an NVH suppressor. It’s brilliant.

The whole experience is much more crisp and lively than in the standard NX 200t or its hybrid sibling. More than anything, this is not a sports package that will beat you up on a rough road. Lexus was careful to balance ride comfort, quietness, and handling in a way that’s appropriate to the vehicle.

The gas filled strut brace is not anything new. It was originally developed by Yamaha back in 2003 as part of the suspension and chassis tuning of 2ZZ-GE Corolla XRS with 180 HP. I have had it for over 11 years.
