This connectivity suite lets you access all kinds of media options on the available 10.3-inch screen, including iHeartRadio®, Pandora®, and Yelp®. It also offers onboard Wi-Fi, so up to five mobile devices can connect to the internet.
One of the features included in this suite is Lexus Enform Safety Connect. If you get into a collision, your vehicle was stolen, or there’s some other type of emergency, roadside assistance can be sent directly to the vehicle’s GPS location. There’s also Lexus Enform Service Connect, which gives you information on anything from fuel level and mileage to maintenance alerts and vehicle health reports.


The 2018 LEXUS NX 300 comes standard with a 2.0L I-4 engine that’s paired with a 6-speed electronically controlled transmission for smooth shifting. The vehicle delivers 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It also lets you drive farther for longer, as it can achieve an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG.*
Front-wheel drive comes standard, but an all-wheel drive system is available. If wheelspin is detected, the system can deliver up to 50% of available torque to the rear wheels.
Furthermore, the NX 300 has an independent double-wishbone type with coil springs, plus gas-pressurized shock absorbers and stabilizer bar for better handling on the road. And there’s an Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, and Brake Assist to give you confidence and peace of mind when driving.


The NX 300 has the capability to make your drives around Bedford, Manchester, and Merrimack more enjoyable. However, a great way to determine if it’s right for you is to sit behind the wheel and test it out yourself.
