The driving experience of a UX and NX Lexus models

Based on an online survey that we recently carried out, most UX owners felt that the Lexus UX is vastly underpowered, especially when driving on the highway.

Additionally, UX owners who have owned other Lexus models, like the NX, felt that UX doesn’t have much power when compared to other Lexus models.

However, some UX owners felt that it is enough to get by if you don’t really care that much about speed.

Who should buy the Lexus UX and NX models?

UX Lexus has got a great cabin design and is very driver-oriented. However, buyers who have a big family, carry many things, and mind how fast it drives will not like the UX model.

Personally, I feel the Lexus UX is a perfect vehicle for buyers who are looking for comfort, as well as those who are single/ have no kids.

On the other hand, the Lexus NX is a great option if you always need to haul pieces of equipment when driving. However, even though the space is much bigger than that of UX it still wouldn’t be the best car if you have a big family.

If you prefer a Lexus with more cargo space, then I would recommend you take a look at Lexus RX.

RX is a bigger model, is more family-oriented, and has more cargo and interior space.

Final Word

Lexus is a very reliable car and is in fact the best car for people who are looking for comfort and a bit of luxury. 

However, if you are the kind of person who is more thrilled by how fast the car drives, you might end up disappointed, especially if you are coming from a great performance car.
