Not only is the Lexus NX car lease model a stylish hybrid SUV to drive, it's also a comfortable and well-designed car.

The model was revamped in 2020 with the addition of rear and front parking sensors, and Lexus added 'drive force limited control' to help reduce accidents - the system works to avoid a collision and will engage the brakes automatically to bring the car to a stop.

This extended to a new interior finish with a choice of upholstery, and a matching finish for the instrument panel for the top spec model.

This is undoubtedly a premium SUV, and the NX comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and an eight-inch satnav.

There's the option of a 10.3-inch display which is standard on some of the trims, and the better spec versions come with an improved sound system, wireless phone charging, a panoramic roof, a head-up display and a 360° camera.
