The base trim 2024 Lexus NX 250 price is $40,205.

A 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque come standard, routed through an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. Selectable drive modes – Eco, Normal, and Sport – fine-tuned performance, and paddle shifters add a racy feel.

Inside, dual-zone climate control keeps everyone comfortable. Eight-way power-adjustable front seats ensure long-distance comfort. And the SmartAccess keyless entry system makes it easy to jump behind the wheel.

The base NX250 also comes loaded with standard technology like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a 10-speaker Lexus premium sound system. A 9.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless connectivity. And a backup camera makes it easy to navigate parking lots.

Exterior styling is signature Lexus, with a dramatic front end, sharp creases, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

And like any Lexus, the 2024 NX 250 has excellent safety features. Eight airbags provide reassuring protection. A Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert makes lane changes easy. And the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 includes the following:

• All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Curve Speed Management

• A pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and intersection support

• Lane-Departure Alert with Steering Assist

All in all, the base model 2024 Lexus NX 250 is a full-featured compact luxury SUV.

What you’re getting with the 2024 Lexus NX450h+ F Sport Handling AWD

On the other end of the spectrum, the 2024 Lexus NX 450h+ F Sport Handling AWD adds a hybrid powertrain, all-wheel drive, and performance suspension. That adds up to an MSRP of $60,405.

A high-tech plug-in hybrid system powers the NX 450h+, providing class-leading efficiency and sports car acceleration. The system uses the same four-cylinder found in the NX 250 but adds electric motors and an 18.1 kWh battery to power the rear wheels. That results in a 0-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds and 36 mpg combined. And this plug-in luxury SUV can also travel 37 miles solely on electric power.

The interior features F-Sport details like aluminum pedals, a perforated leather steering wheel, and bolstered front seats. When you get behind the wheel, it might feel more sports car than luxury SUV.

The Lexus NX450h+ F Sport Handling AWD has lateral performance dampers front and rear and an adaptive variable suspension for enhanced handling. And when you want to play racecar driver, the paddle shifters let you click off gear changes.

A larger 14.0-inch infotainment touchscreen puts everything at your fingertips, and optional wireless smartphone charging lets you power up on the go.

And like the NX 250, the NX 450h+ F Sport Handling AWD has the excellent Lexus Safety System+ 3.0.

The Lexus NX450h+ F Sport Handling AWD costs a significant premium over the base trim NX 250. But you get a lot in return.
