Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Lexus NX 300h returns unchanged.We suggest adding the Comfort package for its heated and ventilated front seats and blind-spot monitoring. Because you can't get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration on the NX, adding the Navigation package may also be a wise choice.

Pros
Great fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Back seat has enough room for adults
Very quiet cabin at highway speeds

Cons
Limited cargo capacity
Infotainment interface can be distracting to use

Small luxury crossovers are hot, but the 2019 Buick Encore offers a decidedly calm option. It's cute and affordable, but lacks some options found on others.

Pros
Refined ride
Compact size
Quality interior and trim
Attractive styling

Cons
Narrow, cramped interior
Underpowered base engine
Lacks standard safety tech
Price rises quickly with options

By:

Streamlined trim-level structure.More powerful engine is now optional.The 2019 Buick Encore is a bit more upscale than other subcompact crossovers thanks to its long list of features and the signature silence of Buick interiors.

Pros
Hushed cabin at highway speeds
Generous standard tech and safety features
Maneuverable size

Cons
Base engine delivers tepid performance
Small cargo area
