5 reasons to buy the 2019 Lexus NX 300

1. Suitable for tall passengers

Sitting in the back can be a challenge for taller people, so rear-row space is worth considering if you have somebody above average height in your family. The 2019 Lexus NX 300, as a luxury compact SUV, is generous in this department. As well as 38.1 inches of headroom and 36.1 inches of legroom, there are 55.3 inches of shoulder space and 53.9 inches of room for the hips. And it's not just the people sitting in the back who benefit from this: a spacious back seat also means more room for luggage, shopping, or pets.

2. Quiet cabin

Driving is a peaceful and grounding experience for many, but that can be ruined by a noisy cabin. The sounds of the engine, the tires on the road, and the weather combined often make for less pleasant journeys. The 2019 Lexus NX 300, with luxurious materials used throughout, is very quiet. Road and wind noise are reduced to almost nothing even at high speeds on bigger roads, which allows you to focus on conversation, music, or simply your own thoughts.

3. A sporty option

The standard 2019 Lexus NX 300 is great for the average shopper – offering comfort, space, and luxurious touches – but if you're after something more sporty, look out for the Lexus NX F Sport. For this, Lexus added multiple sports modes with paddle shifters, sport-tuned suspension, aluminum pedals, bolstered front seats, and body panels specific to the F Sport. The Sport and Sport Plus modes of the F Sport even feature piped-in engine sound to complete the effect.

4. Generous driver aids

Most luxury SUVs come with a decent amount of driver aids to make your life easier, and the 2019 Lexus NX 300 is no exception. To make the driving experience as secure as possible and give you the peace of mind you want, the 2019 Lexus NX 300 features pre-collision braking, pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning as standard. Added tech bonuses include automatic high-beam lights, rearview camera, and adaptive cruise control to allow you to relax when you're behind the wheel, comfortable in the knowledge that the vehicle is doing what it can to improve your journey.

5. Thrifty driving modes

You're no doubt considering fuel economy when it comes to your next vehicle. The good news is that many modern cars come with some kind of eco mode. The 2019 Lexus NX 300 comes with three standard modes – Normal, Sport, and ECO – and ECO ensures that you are able to maximize your fuel use. This is because ECO mode supports more gentle braking and acceleration. Aside from ECO mode, the 2019 Lexus NX 300 gives an impressive mileage performance with the base engine achieving an EPA-estimated 25 combined mpg.
