Best car I’ve ever owned

Fantastic car. Comfortable,sporty, good looking, economical. Fun to drive lots of bells and whistles available to choose from. Plus the reliability of a Lexus IS great. The service and attention after the sale is ongoing.

A steal compared to other SUVs on the market.

by Nurse from Pemberton, NJ | September 02, 2019

Compared to non-luxury vehicles, the current MSRP of this car and its value greatly outweigh that of a new Ford/Toyota/Chevy SUV. My family drives Ford, but when considering an SUV certified pre-owned - or even new for that matter- the cost was nearly $5,000-$8,000 more for a Ford SUV than that of this car - how’s that possible?! So I purchased this car knowing it was an overall price steal because the worth was greater and the actual cost cheaper than most SUVs currently on the market. My only qualms with daily usage is it takes only premium gas (racking up my annual gas costs compared to my previously owned cars), the lack of a digital clock, rear head rests that block some of the view in the rear-view mirror, and the navigation system that connects via bluetooth to your smart phone which is more hassle to manage than it should be. Otherwise, I get a warm, fuzzy feeling when driving this car - an absolute joy.

Best car I have owned

I had the Lexus IS 250 before and was going to get the 200 after my lease was up but saw the NX 200t F Sport and had to test drive it. Absolutely loved it and got it. Have had it 2 1/2 years now and everything about it is great!

2017 Lexus NX 200t Overview


The 2017 Lexus NX 200t (NX Turbo) 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. This year, the NX remains largely unchanged.

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 deeply grooved, angular channeling throughout the exterior. 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 new 18-inch wheels. The F Sport version also offers a unique mesh grille, a more aggressive front fascia, adaptive LED fog lights, sport-tuned suspension, front and rear dampers, two-tone 18-inch wheels, and special badging.

Powering the NX 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 F Sport version comes with its own unique interior treatment, paddle shifters, NuLuxe-trim seats, and active sound control.

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.
