The 2017 Lexus NX 200t perfectly combines the ease of driving a car with a little extra space you’d expect from an SUV.
I’ve owned smaller cars most of my life, I love to be able to easily slide into a tight parking space and whip around corners. I rarely have passengers, so space has never really been much of a concern. But when traveling or coordinating client events, I sure do wish I had more cargo space for luggage, event materials, etc. So I was really happy to see that the Lexus NX 200t seemed to perfectly fit everything I would need and want in a vehicle.
The week I test drove the Lexus NX, I hosted an event for Club Pilates that required me to pick up bottled water and food from Flower Child. All of the supplies fit perfectly in the back of this crossover and everything was easy to take in and out of the back.
After hosting that event, I jetted off to Tuscon, a 2 hour drive from Phoenix. One of my favorite features on the Lexus vehicles is the Drive Mode Select option. If I am in a hurry and need some extra power, I can select the sport Sport mode. For the drive down to Tucson I selected the ECO mode for a more fuel efficient drive to conserve gas.
Another great feature that was useful for a long drive alone was the Self-gripping Cupholders. These cupholders utilize a unique grip design that allow you to unscrew your beverage cap with a single hand.
I was judging a modeling contest in Sierra Vista, but was staying at a resort in Tucson. So I did a LOT of driving that weekend. Like every Lexus vehicle, the NX is an incredibly smooth ride, which made the long drives comfortable and enjoyable. The Remote Touchpad, located in the middle console, made changing the climate, radio station or navigation screen view easy and right at my fingertips.
