Eric's Autos: 2018 Lexus NX300
For 2018 the NX gets a new front clip with standard LED lights, sound-muting acoustic exterior glass (all trims), some suspension retuning and an updated suite of apps for the standard 8-inch and optional 10.3-inch Lexus Display Audio touch screens; the latter also includes complimentary Lexus Enform 4GB Wi-Fi service for one year.
It's more sporty-looking (and driving) than the larger-on-the-outside RX.
It's much roomier -- and so much more practical -- than the price-comparable Q3.
It's more affordable than the size/room-equivalent Q5.
It tows more than the V6-powered RDX.
What's Not So Good
The Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5 are quicker.
The Acura RDX is roomier and costs about the same.
The racy-looking F Sport package does not include a horsepower upgrade.
