Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2017, the NX 300h comes with all-wheel drive only. It also receives a standard Scout GPS Link navigation app that streams from a smartphone.

Pros
Class-best fuel economy
Impeccable cabin construction
Generous backseat room for the segment.

Cons
Limited cargo capacity
Slow acceleration
Potentially distracting Remote Touch interface
All-wheel-drive system less capable than those of non-hybrids.
