If you're looking for a compact luxury crossover hybrid SUV, the Lexus NX 300h is your only choice. The hybrid has earned a five-star overall crash test score from the NHTSA for the 2017 model year and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for 2016.
This hybrid luxury compact SUV delivers class-leading fuel economy (33 city/30 highway and 31 mpg combined) and is now offered exclusively in all-wheel-drive form. The 5-passenger hybrid is available in one trim only. Standard equipment includes 17-inch wheels, automatic LED headlights, LED foglights and running lights, heated mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, automatic dual-zone climate control, eight-way power-adjustable front seats with two-way driver lumbar adjustment, simulated-leather upholstery (Lexus' NuLuxe), a power-adjustable and leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a folding and reclining backseat with a 60/40 split, Bluetooth, a 7-inch Lexus Display Audio knob-and-screen interface, Scout GPS Link navigation smartphone app connectivity, one USB port and an 8-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD and satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and a media player interface.
The 2017 Lexus NX 300h uses a gas-electric hybrid powertrain that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 3 electric motors supplied by a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. Together, they create a maximum output of 194 horsepower. The NX hybrid's cabin is made with materials that look luxurious, expensive and tasteful. The NX 300h isn’t the fastest or most performance-oriented vehicle in its segment, but the hybrid delivers good fuel economy, a comfortable cabin and a smooth, quiet ride. What it lacks in power it makes up with high-tech gadgetry, which includes a touchpad-controlled infotainment system, and the innovative Siri Eyes Free system, which connects you with your iPhone, enabling you to access email, send text messages and more.
U.S. News & World Report called the 2016 NX 300h the “best luxury compact SUV for the money.” Edmunds reviewers say: "Beyond its fuel economy, the NX 300h has a lot to offer. It has a quiet, impeccably crafted cabin that looks pretty cool and has plenty of backseat space. As a crossover SUV, the 300h has an elevated ride height you might be looking for compared to hybrid cars, and its manageable size makes it easy to park and drive around town. The NX's driving experience also strikes an agreeable balance between comfort and driver involvement."
The NX 300h comes with an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty for its hybrid components.
