Not all luxury crossovers are created equal; some are more competent at certain things than others, like the Lexus NX 300h, which has one of the best backseats in the segment.

This may not be one of the most exciting features out there, but it’s certainly one of the most useful and, if you make a habit of carrying passengers around, they’ll be certain to thank you for your pragmatic vehicle choice.

Not only do the NX 300h’s aft accommodations provide ample head and legroom for six-foot-plus riders, but for a little extra cash (a mere $400) they fold at the push of a button. You can do this from either the cargo area, which makes sense if you’re loading large items, or even the driver’s seat via a set of switches on the dashboard; perfect for crushing your pals. It’s a hoot!

But not only do these backrests fold, they also power adjust. You read that right — rear-seat riders can alter the seat recline at the push of a button, which is much more luxurious than the clunky levers found in rival models.

Aside from impressive fuel efficiency, this hybrid crossover vehicle also offers some 54 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume, which is supposedly enough for up to four golf bags. For more information on the 2016 Lexus NX 300h make sure to check out the full review and video at the link above.
