2022 Lexus NX350 AWD Luxury Review: Second Generation, Tech Laden

Now entering its second generation, the 2022 Lexus NX comes with the requisite amount of new whiz bang tech and look at me luxury. But that’s not what’s exciting here. Lexus also took the time to think about the driver’s enjoyment behind the wheel, as the core chassis demonstrates better road manners and is even willing to play. And this is a Lexus SUV we’re talking about!

In this video, I take you through the car, show you what features are offered and how they work. And then I take you on a drive to get a sense of how well it handles, the quality of the ride, and the overall experience.
