Kelley Blue Book

The experts at Kelley Blue Book rated the 2020 NX at 4.4 out of five stars, complimenting the “good interior room, an accommodating size, and a competitive price tag.” This model also “has more than enough punch to make the drive satisfying, and unlike an Audi Q3 or a Mercedes-Benz GLC, the NX offers the option of a hybrid powertrain.” All in all, Kelley Blue Book sums it up stating:

  • “In an ever-growing sea of small-luxury SUVs, the 2020 Lexus NX compact-luxury-crossover SUV stands out with futuristic styling, a long list of standard features and an impeccable reputation for reliability and strong resale.”


In the Edmunds 2020 Lexus NX 300 review, the experts mention “lots of standard high-tech safety features” and driver assistance features like lane centering assist, low-light pedestrian detection, and bicyclist detection, as well as the premium Mark Levinson® Sound System. Additional praise Edmunds offers this Lexus compact SUV:

  • “Supremely comfortable ride and seats”
  • “Cabin is very quiet at highway speeds”
  • “The interior materials are plush and the cabin layout is nice”


In MotorTrend’s overview of the Best Small Luxury SUVs, which they called “sensible and fun to drive,” the 2020 Lexus NX made the list, as a “smooth-riding crossover” with “satisfying handling.” MotorTrend reviewers also liked:

  • The “comfortable interior,” and “plenty of legroom front and rear”
  • The standard 235 hp engine

In MotorTrend’s Lexus NX hybrid review, they awarded this 194-hp powertrain option an Intellichoice Best Value Award, stating that “The NX 300h stands out from the crowd with its refined ride and strong fuel economy.”
