I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was handed the keys to the Lexus NX F Sport– if anything, you expect a dressed up version of a compact SUV. But what you experience is best summarized as wild refinement. The orange hue stands out in the cityscape of Bellevue, Washington, but absolutely pops in the snowy landscape… and absolutely feels at home at the same time. What you feel when you shift into Sport mode is an eagerness to push the limits. What you hear as you press on the throttle is a bobcat springing for its prey, and what you taste after you’ve reached your destination is the rugged sophistication of a single-malt scotch that has matured in ex-bourbon casks for over a decade. Perspective changed. Mission accomplished.
The new Lexus NX F Sport in Molten Pearl needs to be driven. And it needs to escape the city… every once in a while. Make sure you click the video link to see the short film!
