2023 Lexus NX Trims & Specs

The Lexus NX is available in seven trim levels: NX 250, NX 250 Premium, NX 250 Luxury, NX 350, NX 350 Premium, NX 350 Luxury, and NX 350 F Sport Handling. The NX 250 variants all use a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that produces 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, and can be had in either FWD or AWD. The NX 350 trims can only be had with AWD, and their 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder delivers 275 hp and 317 lb-ft. All Lexus NX models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Standard equipment is comprehensive even in the base trim, and feature keyless entry with push-button start, 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, NuLuxe synthetic leather upholstery on all non-hybrid variants, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, eight-way power adjustment for the heated front seats, bi-LED headlights, and a 9.8-inch color touchscreen infotainment display with ten speakers and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

This standard specification is carried across all trims, with the F Sport Handling adding a G-meter, F Sport badges, trim-specific interior and exterior decorations, sports seats and steering wheel, and powered adjustment for the tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Premium and Luxury packages add niceties like heated and ventilated front seats with driver's seat memory, a power tilt-and-slide moonroof, a power liftgate with kick sensor, front and rear parking sensors with automatic braking, a 10-inch head-up display, and a 14-inch infotainment display, depending on the selected package.

Safety specifications are equally comprehensive, and includes the Lexus Safety System+ 3.0 for all trims. This driver assistance suite comprises adaptive all-speed cruise control with curve speed management, front pre-collision avoidance with automatic braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assistance, intelligent high beams, blind-spot monitoring, a rear-view camera, and rear cross-traffic alert. This is on top of the stability and traction control, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and eight airbags.

What's the Price of the 2023 Lexus NX?

The price of the Lexus NX starts at $39,055 for the base 250 with FWD. The Premium Package costs $3,050 and the Luxury Package goes for $6,150. If you want the 250 in AWD guise, add $1,600 to the price.

The base price of the NX 350 is $42,815, and another $3,050 or $7,450 is added for the Premium and Luxury packages, respectively. F Sport models will set you back $47,915, or you can splurge another $2,200 on the F Sport Luxury Package.

Hybrid models start at $42,655 for the 350h in base spec, and the Premium/Luxury packages cost the same as they do for the gas-only NX 350. Nearer to the top of the range, the NX 450h+ starts at $57,505, while the F Sport derivative has a sticker price of $58,755. These prices exclude a destination fee of $1,150 in the US.

Additional Packages

There are a few optional packages for the new NX, and pricing for these vary depending on the model and trim you equip them to. For the base model, the $3,050 Premium Package adds things like ventilated front seats, a driver's memory system, and a power moonroof. The $6,150 Luxury Package includes these features along with a perforated leather interior, a 10-inch head-up display, the 14-inch touchscreen display, and more. The wonderful 17-speaker Mark Levinson sound system is a standalone option for $2,125, but requires the Premium Package as well.

Similar Premium/Luxury packages are available for the NX 350, but these cost $3,050 and $7,450, respectively. At this level, 20-inch wheels are also available.

Standalone options include the ten-inch head-up display with steering-wheel-mounted touch sensors for $1,100, a digital rearview mirror for $200, and ambient lighting for $100, but some of these may require other add-ons too.

What 2023 Lexus NX Model Should I Buy?

We know, and Lexus knows, that the NX 350 with its standard all-wheel-drive system will be the main seller in the lineup. The only reason we wouldn't push for the NX 250 is the engine, and we do wish Lexus would offer a 350 without all-wheel drive. The sweet spot appears to be the 350h with its much-improved fuel economy and bump in power. The 450h+ is the headliner, but you'll have to really love the NX to pay $57,505 for one. That said, there are much worse ways to spend that kind of money.

The F-Sport models do offer substantial upgrades, but we just do not see the NX as a performance vehicle. Frankly, if you want the modern equivalent of a hot hatch, there's much better out there for the money.
