Car and Driver on the 300h...

Praised...

Quote:
Hushed as a prep-school library, the NX300h lets a mere 71 decibels of noise into the cabin at wide-open throttle and only 68 when cruising at 70 mph (the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 measured 75 decibels wide open and 67 cruising). The interior is a snug, personal space with its high center console and central dash jutting out toward the occupants, creating a platform for the stand-up center screen.

Clicked on the test sheet link and found that they tested on August 13. Probably released the results now per some agreement with Lexus. Glad the 0 to 60 times are less than what Lexus published. If you want a mid-sized luxury hybrid SUV, this one gives the best mileage.

Well, it is 200t F-sport for me. Plain non-F looks bad IMO.

Depends what you are looking for. If speed is a priority then you are going to want to go with the F-sport model.

Not just speed, but financial too. If the only hybrid available is the $52k version, then there just isn't much choice. The F-sport is no rocket either...7 seconds is hardly class-leading. But, it represents a good value for the most part.

No one is buying the NX for speed and serious performance, you buy an RC for that.

F-sport carries no mechanical advantage. If speed is a priority pony up for a Macan and then think about where your life went wrong

Can't forget about the flux capacitors, one at every wheel, even the steering wheel for faster steering.

Of course...but would you still be OK if the NX goes from 0-60 in 10 seconds? Who is the NX competing with? Is NX competing with Prius? Or is it competing with BMW X3/X4, Mercedes GLK/GLA, Porsche Macan, Acura RDX, etc.?

NX needs to be competitive. Saying that NX is not for performance minded folks is certainly not the message Lexus conveyed!! If that was the case, then a Honda CRV is fine for ALL OF YOU GUYS. Is that true?

Lets be more realistic here....

Doesn't the F-sport carry a sportier suspension? Doesn't the F-sport have quicker shifting or throttle or something like that?
