The 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport is Crossover Drama! and we love it, it is the equivalent of an RC-F on castrol roids. Yes, seriously this cross-over is so out there it really is hard to believe Lexus is responsible for such drama causing madness. You will be delighted to know that the next women driving her children to school has enough power to reach there 2 minutes faster.. Yes, it isn’t fast by any means.
Infact the 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport is pretty heavy, weighing in at 4175 pounds but read on because this big girl has allot to offer and shes beautiful too. And it isn’t anything new that the Lexus RX is the best selling luxury cross-over in the United States packing in over 100,000 sales annually. And frankly, we weren’t surprised with such awful and boring entries in this segment, a refreshing entry such as our superstar here the 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport comes along way.
The standard 2015 Lexus NX 200t has a 2.0 Liter 4 cylinder engine with a single turbo and all wheel drive, that produces adequate power and good fuel economy yet still remaining really heavy making it difficult to get any sort of spirited to drive for the shopping mom.
Fret not, the 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport can reach 100 km/h in 7 seconds only, which is quite impressive for the weight and luxury it carries around, and more than enough to speed up your shopping trips. This time is also the same as what you would get out of a 2015 Audi Q5 with the 2.0Liter Turbo engine, or the 2015 Volkswagen Touareg with the same engine, while the 2015 BMW X3 xDriver28i eats their lunch money with a 0-100 km/h of just 6.2 seconds.
Now, if you are a dude rather than a dudette which most of this article was aimed towards, then you should be interested in the following specs. The 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport completes the quarter mile in 15.3 seconds at 90 mph, while being able to reach a complete stop from 60mph in 116 feet. It is also capable of achieving an impressive 0.79 g. (grip lateral) on the figure eight track making it a really good handling crossover/SUV.
Car Tavern is proud to say that we approve this crossover, because it ticks most of the boxes and most of all: It truly represents the first example of a crossover that deviates from the dullness that is flooding the Crossover market. The 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport manages to look sporty and unique, with muscular lines and sharp edges to aid it’s mission to the top of the Mom hauler market. And not just that, it features luxury that is envy worthy as good as the German Mercedes equivalents if not better. The only quarrel I have with the 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport would be the “all over the place” interior that is not as ergonomic as one would like.
