  1. A Happy, healthy, peaceful Christmas to all.
  2. As I have referred to in other posts I have averaged over 41mpg covering 17500 miles from new with a mix of driving - City and Motorway. This has been recorded using brim to brim refuelling. The on board computer is always optimistic and weather conditions certainly affect the consumption which in my experience is as much as 8 mpg.
  3. Agree that a long test drive is advisable but I can honestly say that I reckon the NX to be the most comfortable car that I have ever driven and owned - and that's quite a few! Many passengers have also commented on the comfort, looks and finish of the NX. I don't think that you will be disappointed. Its a great car. I have the ochre (cream) leather interior which after nearly 21 months looks as good as new so imagine that the red interior should be equally hard wearing. Happy Christmas to all.
  4. Have now covered 17500 miles in 21 months and recorded brim to brim fuelling from day one. Average is now 41.42mpg with a mix of city, short journey, motorway and longer trips. Best to date has been 46.32 and poorest 34.07. Very happy with that and remain delighted with the NX.
  5. One of the main factors as to why I now drive a Lexus was their offer of a 24 hour test drive of the NX. Once I had experienced the comfort, quality, quietness and driving pleasure I was hooked!
  6. As Herbie says its only AWD when it needs to be. If it was registered in March 2018 however I will be surprised if its 2019MY. I took delivery of my NX in April 2018 (2018MY) and have been delighted with it so can thoroughly recommend.
  7. I have now done over 15000 miles and have done brim to brim fill up calculations from day one and therefore a mix of driving. Averaging in excess of 42mpg with a best of 46.3 and worst of 34.6. Recent journey of 400 miles has resulted in 45mpg. The winter period however certainly pushes the consumption up.
  8. I think it applies the handbrake.
  9. That is pretty good going and I am not surprised that you are happy with that.
  10. Yes the in car figures tend to be optimistic. I have conducted brim to brim mpg calculations from the day I took delivery and the average to date is slightly over 41. This is from a broad mix of driving - City, Country and Motorway. Just returned today from a 400 mile journey through South West Scotland and the dash display is showing 46.8 but expect that in reality this will be c43 to the gallon. Very happy with this and in excess of the new standard WLTP figures for the NX.
  11. As far as I am aware unfortunately this isn't a feature on the NX Luxury.
  12. Would have thought that this was a warranty job!
  13. NX has both but analogue clock is far classier than a digital.
  14. That feature is disabled on 2018MY NX Luxury spec as far as I have been informed. It is standard on the f sport and above.
  15. Hi Andy I don't think the second option is available on the Luxury spec. I had test driven an F Sport which had this but was disappointed that my Luxury didn't feature this useful facility.
