New Lexus NX claims two prestigious awards

The new Lexus NX has claimed two prestigious titles in the What Car? and Auto Express New Car Awards.

Best mid-size premium SUV - Auto Express New Car Awards

The new Lexus NX has been honoured as the best mid-size premium SUV in the 2022 Auto Express New Car Awards. It emerged the winner from a highly competitive market segment by impressing the judges with its all-round capabilities – particularly the quality of the plug-in hybrid electric version, the NX 450h+.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor in Chief, said: “Lexus has really pushed the NX’s ability, underpinned by the versatile GA-K platform that delivers what premium buyers want on many fronts – and overtaking many of its premium German competitors in the process.”

Drawing attention to Lexus’s “decades” of experience in electrified powertrain technology, he remarked on the model’s EV driving range (up to 47 miles) and its “supreme refinement”.

What Car? Plug-in Hybrid of the Year

In addition, the new Lexus NX 450h+ has been named the Plug-in Hybrid of the Year in the prestigious What Car? awards. It is an auspicious first honour for the new mid-size premium SUV, Lexus’s first plug-in hybrid electric model, introduced in late 2021.

Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor, expressed warm praise for the Lexus: “The Lexus NX is one of the most compelling reasons to go green that we’ve yet seen, with a long electric-only range which should not only slash motorists running costs, but also makes for tempting company car tax rates. The NX is good to drive, too, and has an interior that’s hard to fault in any respect. In short, Lexus has proved that driving an electrified car without accepting compromises need not be a fantasy.”
