Lexus NX300h F Sport first drive review

Lexus NX300h F Sport first drive review

The petrol-electric hybrid Lexus NX300h is a superior ownership proposition to the NX200t, but no better to drive

The NX300h petrol-electric hybrid is the first Lexus NX you’ll be able to get your hands on in the UK when it reaches these shores in October.Expected to account for 90 per cent of total NX sales, the NX300h uses the hybrid drivetrain adapted from the IS300h and GS300h.That means a 2.5-litre four-cylinder Atkinson cycle petrol engine combined with an electric motor to drive the front wheels.A new addition to the drivetrain in the NX is an electric motor for the rear axle, making the NX300h four-wheel drive, in all versions from SE up – so SE, Luxury, F Sport and Premier variants.Only the base S model is offered in front-wheel drive configuration.
