Three wins in three years for the Lexus NX in the Auto Express awards

3 July 2024

The Lexus NX has maintained its supremacy in one of the most competitive parts of the car market, crowned Mid-size Premium SUV of the Year for a third year in succession in the Auto Express New Car Awards.

Announcing the NX’s latest success at a presentation ceremony in London yesterday evening, Paul Barker, Auto Express Editor, said: “Lexus really pulled a blinder with the new NX, which is why it once again tops its category. The cabin is typically Lexus in its plushness, but it’s a mix of ride and handling plus smooth and frugal hybrid technology that helps the NX make its mark at the top of a very competitive class.”

The NX set the standards for a new generation of Lexus cars when the current model was introduced in 2022, presenting a new design approach and offering the choice of two efficient electrified powertrains – the self-charging NX 350h hybrid and the plug-in hybrid NX 450h+. The latter benefits from the company’s long-established expertise in electrification technologies: when battery charge is depleted, the vehicle switches seamlessly to operate as a self-charging hybrid. This maintains a high level of fuel economy and emissions efficiency, compared to rival systems which default to running on an internal combustion engine alone.

People interested in experiencing what makes the NX a regular award-winning success can take advantage of enhanced pricing of the NX 450h+ this summer. For further details and the latest offers on the NX range, visit
