Sporty & Efficient Specs

The 2021 Lexus NX 300 delivers a smooth, stable drive that's both fun and fuel efficient. So, whether you're dealing with rough roads or running errands downtown, it'll help you turn on a dime and cover a lot of ground in between stops for gas.

It's powered by a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but all-wheel drive is also available. Both options work with a 6-speed Electronically Controlled Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i). The combination of this powertrain and the ECT-i can deliver the following specs:

  • 235 horsepower
  • 258 lb-ft of torque
  • 0 to 60 MPH in 7.0 seconds
  • EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG*

Roomy & Refined Interior

With easy access, premium amenities, and lots of space, the 2021 Lexus NX 300 offers an impressive cabin. Feel free to leave the keys in your pocket, thanks to SmartAccess and a push-button start. You'll be welcomed inside by an illuminated entry system, but you can let even more light in with an available moonroof.

The interior includes perforated NuLuxe® upholstery, as well as 10-way power-adjustable front seats. To round things out, you'll also have a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter.

In addition to its good looks and comfortable features, the NX 300 has seating for five, plenty of room to kick back and relax, and tons of cargo room.
