Lexus NX 300h F Sport 2019 Radio Review

2019 Lexus NX 300h AWD F Sport sideWith many of the latest technology features appearing in lower priced cars is it worth buying a luxury SUV? Are hybrids what they purport to be? Rob Fraser ponders these questions driving a Lexus

These questions were on my mind when we tested the Lexus NX 300h F Sport.

As soon as we started to drive the Lexus there was an familiarity about the experience that was comforting and the near $68,000 pricing is certainly not outrageous.  Lexus prides itself in providing prestige without going over the top in price. Something some European models could emulate.

I found the Hybrid excellent round town, where the nature of stop start driving is particularly suited to the dual engine configuration. On the freeway there was little difference, cruising at a constant rate doesn’t allow the hybrid to shine as much.  Overall the economy was about 5.7l/100k.

With stylish looks, packed with standard comfort and safety features and reasonably priced and with Lexus build quality, the NX 300 H F Sport is definitely worth a drive.
