2016 Lexus NX 200t: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Lexus NX, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Lexus NX Review

Who knew Lexus has a compact crossover in their lineup? This is the 2016 Lexus NX 200t, and it is certainly here to stay. Behind its strong looks, the NX is like any other Lexus, with amazing luxury features and superior quality. The daring sheet metal should broaden the NX’s appeal to new demographics. Here are five reasons this Lexus crossover goes above and beyond.

In-Your-Face Styling

Make no mistake, the NX 200t has a commanding first impression. Lexus labels its models’ prominent new nose the “spindle grille,” and the NX has the one of the most unique. The athletic front end just might intimidate other drivers. But it’s not just the nose, the entire body has aggressive lines and angles everywhere you look. The styling looks like something you’ll see a decade from now. Older Lexus models are more subtle, but the newer Lexus models have some definite character.

Performance and Efficiency

The sole engine the NX offers is a good one, a quick 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. It’s turbocharged, and that helps Lexus squeeze 235 horses out of the engine, and gives the NX a 0-to-60 time of about 7 seconds flat. Also, it returns an impressive 28 miles per gallon on the highway. Whatever your driving desire is, the 6-speed automatic transmission ensures that shifting is consistently smooth and confident. See the 2016 Lexus NX models for sale near you


When you have top-notch looks outside, top technology inside to match is a must. Standard features include Bluetooth, voice controls and a 7-inch display screen with an available touchpad. Even the dashboard is stylish and the detailing has a futuristic feel. In the compact crossover segment there are the usual suspects, but the NX sets itself apart from the pack.

Plenty of Passenger Space

The NX has compact dimensions, however, it can comfortably seat adults anywhere, unlike others. The sporty bucket front seats offer plenty of adjustments, while the back seat has ample room for taller folks. It’s nice to find a compact crossover that doesn’t feel like one when you have a full house. The NX breaks the mold for compact crossover space.

Responsive Handling

With a pleasantly firm suspension and optional all-wheel drive, the NX almost has a European feel while driving. The steering is precise and direct, and the body has limited roll while taking tighter turns. If you are attracted to a sporty crossover that makes you feel like part of the action, then the NX is the Lexus that best suits you. Not to mention, it is nifty enough for city driving and much easier to park than bulky SUV’s.

Autotrader Says:

It isn’t just a head turner, the 2016 Lexus NX 200t is appealing in many ways. Get over to your Lexus dealer and give the NX200t a spin, you won’t be dissapointed. Find a Lexus NX for sale
