2015 Lexus NX Review

"As compact luxury SUVs go, the 2015 Lexus NX combines enough driving fun and occupant comfort to deserve a look, but anyone with serious cargo needs should look elsewhere, or stick to the brand's popular RX," said Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays. Check out Mays' review for more.

2015 Lexus NX First Drive

As badge engineering goes, Toyota's luxury division has more hits than misses. The ES midsize sedan feels considerably nicer than a Toyota Camry; the GX bears little resemblance inside or out to its Toyota 4Runner sibling. And so it goes for the NX, a car Toyota Corporate Marketing Manager Brian Bolain says is "very loosely related to the RAV4," Toyota's popular small SUV. Bolain insists it has 90 percent different parts and a structure that's 20 percent more rigid.

2015 Lexus NX: First Look

Indeed, the two seem like distant cousins at most. The NX hits U.S. showrooms in December, one of 80 global markets in which Lexus plans to sell the SUV. Pricing is still to come. But at a media preview in Seattle, I drove preproduction versions of the gasoline-powered NX 200t and gas-electric NX 300h hybrid, and my early take is the NX holds promise.

As compact luxury SUVs go, the 2015 Lexus NX combines sufficient driving fun and occupant comfort to deserve a look, though anyone with serious cargo needs should look elsewhere in this crowded field, or stick to the brand's popular RX.

2015 Lexus NX: First Look

2015_Lexus_NX

Competes with: Infiniti QX50, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, BMW X1

Looks like: Lexus developed a design around the grille

Powertrain: Turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or hybrid powertrain

Hits dealerships: Late 2014

If there is one sure trend in the luxury-car marketplace, it is the development of the compact luxury SUV. Lexus is officially joining the club with the just-introduced production model NX.

The company has debuted concept versions of the NX a few times, with the most recent being a radical-looking design at the Tokyo Motor Show in November 2013. The 2015 Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h are toned down from the concept but signify a big move by the brand.

The NX is debuting at the Beijing Auto Show next week and will not be at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, which is running at the same time.
