The 2016 Lexus NX 200t is an entry-level, mid-size luxury SUV that seats 5 passengers . It competes with the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and Acura RDX. The available NX 300h hybrid variant will be covered in a separate overview.

Two trims are available: the base model and F Sport.

The NX has unconventional styling that is bound to turn heads. It follows the same “L-finesse” design language as the rest of the Lexus lineup. The front-end features the signature “spindle grille” and jagged headlights. The NX is also accentuated by deep, angular creases throughout the exterior. The F Sport version includes a unique mesh grille and a more aggressive front fascia. Standard features include power/heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Available features include a trailer hitch receiver, LED daytime running lamps, automatic dimming side mirrors, a power liftgate, and 18-inch wheels.

Powering the NX 200t is a standard 235-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and front- (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Fuel efficiency for the NX 200t is an EPA-estimated 22/28 mpg city/highway (22/27 mpg for the F Sport AWD).

Inside, the NX comes with a premium leatherette interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. This year, the Remote mobile app has been added to the available Lexus Enform Service. With the mobile app, the driver can remotely start the engine, unlock/lock doors, and find the vehicle in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus Enform Service also includes emergency communication, vehicle status and maintenance information, navigation assist, and search for places of interest. The center stack features a standard audio system that includes a touchscreen, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system and a 10-speaker premium audio system. Standard features include automatic air conditioning, power front seats, and remote keyless entry. Available features include a power moonroof, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, leather upholstery, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, a memory seat, and a wireless smartphone charging station.

The NX was named a Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It also earned a full 5-star safety rating for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include a blindspot warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, a lane departure warning system, a pre-collision system, and adaptive cruise control.
