The 2015 NX crossover is an all-new addition to the Lexus stable. It aims to provide the popularity and appeal of the Lexus RX in a more compact package. Does it succeed? Roman takes this 300h AWD model for a test to see what’s what.

The NX Hybrid is powered by a combination of the 2.5L internal combustion engine and electric power for a total system output of 194 horsepower. Lexus does not list the torque, but says it’s capable of 9.1 second 0-60 MPH acceleration. Can Roman match it at about one mile above sea level?

The 300h AWD is rated at 33 MPG in the city and 32 MPG combined. The front wheel drive model uses it lighter weight (which is still 4,055 lbs) to get an impressive 35 MPG in the city. The AWD system adds about 130 pounds, but the acceleration is identical to the FWD model, according to Lexus.

The NX also comes with an all-new 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder, but this is for another review.

It starts at $39,720 without destination for the FWD model. However, adding AWD and other options can bring the final price above $51,000 like it was on this tester.
