2019 Lexus NX
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (6 points)
Lexus joined the growing compact luxury SUV segment when it introduced the NX for the 2015 model year. The NX had been a Top Safety Pick + since its introduction — after missing out in 2018, the NX returns to this list. In addition to its high scores in the required crash tests, the NX comes with the Lexus Safety System + which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert and intelligent high beams. The NX is available with the first-ever turbocharged engine in a Lexus — a 2.0-liter four cylinder that produces 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Also available with a hybrid powertrain, the NX 300h is one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in America.
