      The F Sport package in the 2019 nx300h is virtually impossible to buy! A shame!

      very professional video so I enjoy it. I couldn't decide between mercedes glc300, BMW X3 and Lexus nx300 but I know the fact that Lexus is more reliable than other competitors.

      Off topic question, what lav mic are you using and where does it record to? The audio is very clean and crisp. Also, was it adjusted in post?

      Oh about the Lexus customer service, not sure if you were talking about Lexus itself, but our dealership on town has worse customer service than in Toyota. So far I am very dissapointed with that dealership. They never return phone calls, liars.

      This car is AMAZING. It's not as big as RX 350. I love the sporty feel to it, the design is gorgeous. Your music choice in this video is also cool :) Love Enya that's what I listen in my Lexus :)))

      Are you sure? Looking at you going straight from outside lane at a roundabout and then cutting accross right before exit suggests you've never seen Highway Code which begs a question, why are you reviewing cars without driving licence?

      I thought my NX was getting terrible MPG. I tracked it for a year and I was right. So, I wrote this blog with photos. https://medium.com/@Ro.../lexus-mpg-is-bullshit-b78c25b3e40f

      I had my NX 200t since February 2017 and I'm averaging 25 mpg. I live in Illinois with lots of flat highway driving. I've recently replaced my air filter with K&N performance filters and noticed a 2 mpg average improvement. I hope you still have your NX cuz I really like the car.

      This "only-urban" "SUV", the Lexus NX300h, is nothing but a worse version of the newer Toyota Rav4 Hybrid: both mount the same gas and electric engines and give same horsepower, but the Lexus NX300h is heavier (285 more pounds), much less safe (both at EuroNCAP, at the IIHS and at the NHTSA), less off road capable (it has a much lower attack angle and lacks of spare wheel), with clearly worse acceleration (one more second than the RAV4 to reach 100 kmh / 60 mph) and far more expensive even with far fewer accesories or extras. Without hesitation, the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is clearly a better chice from all points of view.

      nx300h is not even comparable with rav4 , i bet you do not own an nx otherwise you wouldnt compare the two ,

      Lowell Dizon In reply to Lucrecia Emmanuelle

      I agree on your points, but the Lexus NX 200t is the best choice and has a better look both exterior and interior. The seats alone of the NX will make you sign the papers. I did cross shop the RAV and NX, and I'm glad I've picked the NX. I get lots of compliments!
