Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering all of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide selection of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Lexus Nx. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Lexus Nx is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and lots of options to select from.
As has been the case for a while, you will get the 2020 Lexus Nx with a four-cylinder engine or even a stronger V6, or you may get the miserly 2020 Lexus Nx Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Lexus Nx is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Lexus Nx also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Lexus Nx with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Lexus Nx provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to select from over the way.
The 2020 Lexus Nx is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content makes it supremely easy to drive. If you’re searching for something with a bit more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Lexus Nx might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Lexus Nx is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Lexus Nx Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL audio system combined with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Lexus Nx stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to create a lot of people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Lexus Nx has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
