Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Lexus RX350 and the Lexus NX200t are both SUVs from the same carmaker. The RX350 is a midsize, two-row or three-row luxury SUV, and the NX200t is a compact, two-row luxury SUV. Both of these vehicles come with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.

The larger Lexus RX350 has a standard engine with 295 horsepower, as well as a hybrid version with 308 total system horsepower. The smaller NX200t has a 235-horsepower engine as standard, while the hybrid version has 194 total system horsepower.

The RX350 offers more cargo space, with 56.3 cubic feet in the two-row version with the rear seat folded, and 58 cubic feet in the three-row version with the second- and third-row seats folded. The smaller NX200t has 54.6 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

The RX350 does tend to be more slightly more reliable, and comes with a lower average annual cost of repairs than the NX200t.

Making a choice between these two well-appointed Lexus SUVs is an issue of how much space you need, and what you prefer to spend. If you must have three rows of seating, then the RX350 L makes the most sense. But if two rows will suit your needs, check out both the NX200t and the smaller version of the RX350. They are very close in terms of cargo space, but farther apart in price.
