Review

A fine all-rounder and the best car Lexus has launched for years

So far, this is the only version of the NX we’ve tried – and that’s important to note because F-Sport models have different suspension to other trims. Ride comfort is good at low speeds, with some fidget on faster roads. Worth a look if you want a sportier look and plenty of standard kit.

The plug-in hybrid version of the Lexus NX can officially do up to 43 miles on pure battery power, before its 2.5-litre petrol engine takes over until you plug the car in again. Acceleration is surprisingly nippy, with 0-62mph taking 6.3 seconds.
