Lexus handed me the keys to their newest hybrid crossover – the 2023 Lexus NX 350. Driving it around town for a week I got a feel for just what its best features were and which are leaving more on the table. Here are the PROS and Cons of the 2023 Lexus NX 350.
PRO: Huge Infotainment Screen
Bye-bye touchpad. The center point of the interior of the NX 350 is the 14-inch touchscreen infotainment/navigation display. You are going to use Android Auto or Apple Carplay anyway, might as well be a huge screen.
PRO: Great Exterior Looks for a Crossover
The subjective best feature, but the NX 350 is one of the best-looking crossovers you can buy.
PRO: F Sport Bits Bring the Sporty Feel
The F Sport bit and bobs sprinkled throughout the vehicle definitely send you on a sporty feel path versus getting a base model.
PRO: Great Smooth Automatic Transmission
Behind the nice fancy F Sport steering wheel in the NX 350 we drove are some paddles to control the automatic transmission and I will tell you that the transmission is so butter smooth you won’t ever use them.
CON: Low on Cargo Space
Stretching for cons with the NX 350, but the cargo space definitely felt lacking. The rear hatch goes more the path of a hatchback and the rear legroom leaves some to be desired.
