5 reasons to buy the 2020 Lexus NX 300

1. High level of comfort

The Lexus NX is a small luxury crossover SUV and is a good choice if you prioritize high levels of comfort. All the seats are designed to accommodate most body types and sizes, and feature extra front-seat bolstering on F Sport trim. An available Comfort Package includes front seat heating and ventilation functions to soothe you and your passenger on longer journeys. On top of this, a dual-zone automatic climate control system and a smooth ride further enhance comfort.

2. Feature-rich trims

New for the 2020 model year is the Lexus NX 300 Luxury trim. Sitting above the entry-level trim but below the top-line F Sport, the NX 300 Luxury features wood and perforated leather interior finishes, a heated steering wheel, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Should you be more of an enthusiast driver, the NX 300 F Sport's tuned suspension, aluminum pedals, black headliner, metallic interior inlays, and race-inspired paddle shifters will appeal. Other innovations for 2020 include a smart access and remote start function which allows you to start the car from your smart phone or smart watch via the standard Lexus Enform Remote app.

3. Advanced technology

All NX 300 trims include high levels of onboard technology. An eight-inch color touchscreen multimedia display is standard, with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, voice command functionality, and USB and Bluetooth® connectivity. New for 2020, AndroidAuto and Apple CarPlay® integration ensures your devices can be seamlessly connected. A 10-inch navigation system can be found as part of the available Navigation Package and a Mark Levinson® 14-speaker surround audio system is an available option for the first time, adding to the luxurious experience of the 2020 Lexus NX 300.

4. A relaxing drive

The 2020 Lexus NX 300 will place few demands on you as you drive. A smooth engine and seamless transmission give the car a relaxed persona, and its genuinely high comfort levels and hushed progress on the highway mean you and your passengers can really enjoy any and every journey. New-for-2020 driver assist features added to Lexus NX 300 make this easier. Low-light pedestrian detection, bicyclist detection, and lane-centering assist systems are all standard, and complement the car's adaptive cruise control, front collision mitigation braking and available rear cross-traffic alert technologies.

5. FWD or AWD

All 2020 Lexus NX 300 trims are fitted with the same 235-hp 2.0L four-cylinder gasoline engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with an all-wheel-drive option available for enhanced traction. The AWD system monitors your inputs and those of the vehicle itself to send up to 50% of the available torque to the rear wheels for added peace of mind on the road.
