Should I buy a used Lexus NX?

I have a budget of £30,000 and have been searching for a used Lexus NX. I really love the car and the looks. The problem I face now is whether I should spend such a huge amount for Lexus NX or go for a different brand for a new SUV. I am after the perfect SUV under £30,000 which can last me for years. Looking at petrol prices, I am really not sure whether I should go for a pure petrol car. I would be really grateful if you could guide me in the right direction.

The Lexus NX is a very good SUV with a strong reputation for reliability and comfort. Both Lexus and the NX perform strongly in the annual Honest John Satisfaction Index:

We tested the latest NX 350h for three months and were very impressed. You can read about our experiences with it here:
