Lexus NX SUV - Interior & comfort
Lexus has reworked its infotainment setup for a more intuitive experience
While Lexus interiors have long impressed owners with their build quality and materials, the brand's infotainment has come in for some criticism. For a long time, it has used a touchpad and mouse-style cursor, which can be tricky to use while driving. Over the last few years, our Driver Power owner satisfaction survey has seen Lexus score well across the board, except for the fiddly media system.

It's all change for the NX, however, which gets a large 9.8-inch touchscreen instead. F Sport and Takumi trim levels see this upgraded to a large 14-inch screen, sitting next to a 10-inch display for the instrument panel. Both setups also come with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, so familiar smartphone-style apps can be used.
The NX is generously equipped as standard, with features including a rear-view camera, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, LED lighting and a powered bootlid.
Specifying the Premium Pack adds keyless entry, privacy glass, a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging and extra safety features (plus electric front seats for the plug-in hybrid). The Premium Plus Pack includes heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, a wider-view reversing camera, a head-up display and customisable ambient lighting.
The F Sport model has a sportier look that’s bound to prove popular with UK buyers, plus adaptive suspension. The top-spec Takumi adds a 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, automated parking assist, a sunroof, lane-change assist and a digital rear-view mirror. You can add these features onto the F Sport by choosing the Takumi Pack option.
