Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

As the Lexus NX is a large SUV you probably wouldn’t expect to struggle to fit in the front. And you won’t, even if you’re really tall, although the optional sunroof does lower the height of the ceiling slightly.

Storage space is respectable, with decent-sized door bins, a cubby under the centre armrest and a couple of cupholders between the front seats.

Boot space

The NX 350h and 450h both offer 520 litres of boot space, which is average for the class. That allows it to swallow seven carry-on suitcases with the parcel shelf and rear seats in place – the same as a Audi Q5 50 TFSIe. However, the NX also has underfloor storage for the charging cables and load cover, which you won’t find in the Q5. 

If you want a really big boot and are not fussed about a premium badge, there are better options, including plug-in hybrid versions of the Sorento and the Hyundai Santa Fe.
