It has been a remarkable experience driving the Lexus NX450h+ Luxury AWD. This vehicle is a stylish and capable compact luxury SUV. The model I drove also features a plug-in hybrid. I have been excited at the combinations of the technology, the fit and finish, the style, and the performance.
I also found the general driving dynamics exceptional. Underneath the hood, you have a lot of magic going on. There is a 2.5-liter Inline four-cylinder engine that combines with an electric drive motor to make three hundred and four horsepower.
It is enough to get you zero to 60 mph in six seconds. I love the digital dash. There’s a new digital interface that features wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There’s a full-color heads-up display. There’s wireless charging. There is a continuous variable transmission (CVT) transmission.
It is paired with an all-wheel drive system. I was able to average roughly over 35 miles per gallon in my drives. The battery pack was able to charge up to about 37 miles. It comes with 20-inch wheels.
The interior to me was so warm and inviting. It has a fully digital cluster and a 14-inch touchscreen display. That was simply incredible.
There’s also a driver’s assist package that came with the model I drove. Black poor wood was integrated into the interior. That was very smooth to the touch. There were a lot of glossy black touches throughout the cabin.
I spent time driving around the Washington Metropolitan Area. I drove as far east across the Bay Bridge to Kent Island on I-97. I made multiple trips West from I-70 to I-81 in the Northeastern part of West Virginia. While driving I was able to play my music that I created with the Carnegie Mellon music department. Listening to the Chronicles of The Electromagnetic Feild General gave a great sense of calm. I experienced a great sense of revitalization.
I became quite fond of the Lexus NX. If I was considering a vehicle that was electrified this would be near the top of my list. The base price on NX 450h+ AWD is $56,725. For more information visit www.Lexus.com
