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

By:
