Even though the subcompact NX is on the far side of the age curve, Lexus hasn't made any major changes to it for 2021. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is now standard, as are power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Inside, Lexus has tweaked the NX's steering wheel and tachometer designs.

Pros
Chiseled styling,
proper SUV seating height,
spacious interior.

Cons
Fussy infotainment controller,
middle-of-the-pack acceleration,
starting to show its age.
