Introduction

What Car? says...

Believe it or not, the latest Lexus NX is the first plug-in hybrid model in the Japanese car maker’s 30-odd-year history.

It’s surprising not only because the premium brands Lexus competes against have sold plug-in hybrids for years, but also because the company was a trailblazer for ‘self-charging’ hybrid technology back in the mid-Noughties. If you're not quite clear on the difference, let us explain.

But while numbers are undoubtedly very important for any plug-in hybrid, the Lexus NX needs to be a good car in other respects. Among other things, it needs to be comfortable, refined, practical and well built, and over the next few pages of this review we’ll tell you how good it really is.

When you’ve finished reading our review, we can help you find your next new car for the lowest price available if you search our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a great place to find the best Lexus NX deals.
