Only a few changes mark the 2019 model year for the NX. Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration are now standard across the lineup. Lexus's Enform Remote app is now standard and can be used on smart watches; it includes Alexa and Google Assistant.

Pros
Edgy styling,
SUV-like driving position,
stylish and comfortable interior.

Cons
Irksome infotainment controls,
performance doesn't match looks,
hybrid performance is pokier still.
