The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
With the 2015 NX, Lexus finally has a crossover to take on the mass luxury market--and its striking styling could be a plus. A sporty yet smooth driving feel, quiet interior, and top-tier safety all add up to a lot of appeal for the 2015 Acura RDX, although its lack of features and flair stop it short of greatness.
