The Lexus NX 200t is powerful and quick and delivers a refined ride. This mid-size premium SUV is strikingly styled too and boasts a well-appointed and spacious cabin, and plenty of cargo capacity.
The five-door 200t certainly grabs attention, not least with its conspicuous spindle-shaped grille. It also comes with a number of other arresting fixtures, such as 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome-edged side window frames and a shark fin-styled antenna. Labour-saving features include power-adjustable, auto-folding and heated door mirrors. Among the vehicle’s range of exterior lighting are LED low-beam and halogen high-beam headlights and LED rear combination lights (including a high-level brake light).
Inside the NX 200t’s roomy and upmarket five-seat cabin, the driver can find his or her ideal position with the inclusion of, for example, a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel. The latter is leather-clad too, and other standard features include push-button ignition, electrically operated front and rear windows and automatic two-zone climate control. With all seats up, boot space stands at a creditable 500 litres; with rear seats folded, luggage volume rises to 1,500 litres.
The 200t is installed with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, paired with six-speed automatic transmission. This delivers 235bhp, 350Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 7.3 seconds. The vehicle features Drive Mode Select too, offering Eco, Normal and Sport to suit a wide range of road conditions.
All models are fitted with an eight-speaker Pioneer audio system, which includes DAB radio, an AM/FM tuner and a CD player. Also featured are an eight-inch colour display screen, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX inputs and steering wheel-mounted controls.
The NX 200t has been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five star crash-test rating. Anti-lock Braking System, Vehicle Stability Control, Adaptive Cruise Control (with Pre-crash Safety System), Hill-start Assist Control and rear-view monitoring are among the vehicle’s range of driving aids. Passive safety elements include an eight-airbag system, front seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX attachments and whiplash-minimising front seats with active headrests.
