Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Genuinely capable 4x4 can seat seven and tow big loads.

PROS
Tough, rugged and reliable workhorse
Far better than previous model
Huge boot in five-seat mode
Seven-seat version available
CONS
Ride can be choppy
Not much engine/gearbox choice
Relatively unknown brand
Low fuel economy and high tax

The Rexton is a well-priced SUV that has a lot of boot space for the money and can carry seven people.
Reviews are fairly poor though since it’s not good to drive, noisy and has a dull image. It is one of the cheapest ways to move large loads and more people than usual however, so if you’re in that market then it’s worth a look.

Pros
Good off-road
Practical
Long warranty

Cons
Poor ride
Noisy
Outdated

By:

The Rexton’s four-wheel drive system spends most of its life driving the rear wheels only, diverting power to the front when conditions get more slippery. In most of the cars sold in the UK it will be controlled through a Mercedes-sourced seven-speed automatic transmission - but a six-speed manual is likely to be offered on entry-level editions.
The dashboard has a clean look - again, with some cues from the Tivoli - but cross-stitched material panels and Nappa leather add a touch of luxury. The equipment on offer will include dual-zone climate control, a powered rear tailgate that opens automatically when the keyholder has been standing behind it for three seconds, and a new level of safety kit for SsangYong, including nine airbags and rear cross-traffic alert.

The 2018 Lexus NX ranked #11 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Lexus NX has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 34 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lengthy list of standard tech and safety features
Ample legroom in both rows of seats

Cons
Frustrating infotainment controls
Small, restricted cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Lexus NX is an expressively styled and comfortable compact luxury crossover, but its mix of features faces significant new competitors this year.

Pros
Comfy, spacious front seats
Hybrid fuel economy
Styling has grown on us
Mildly sporty turbo performance

Cons
Design clearly not for everyone
Gas mileage little better than larger SUVs
Road noise can intrude
Infotainment system fussy
No Android Auto, Apple CarPlay

By:

Lexus has renamed its NX 200t the NX 300 for 2018. Mechanically, nothing has changed. But Lexus has made the Safety System+ package, which includes front collision mitigation, lane departure alert, high-beam assist and adaptive cruise control as standard equipment this year.

PROS
Generous backseat room
Available power-folding rear seat
Cabin is very quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Remote Touch Interface can be distracting to use
Limited rear cargo volume
