  • Edgy, truly standout styling
  • Hybrid and turbo models in the mix
  • Should balance practical and sporty
  • Lexus reputation and resale value


  • Probably not as smooth/quiet as the RX
  • Will price points for Hybrid, Turbo be too high?
  • Remote Touch, and its mouse controller


  • Lots of drivetrain choices, all good
  • A lesson in good taste
  • Quick shifts from the eight-speed
  • Google Earth maps make Audi Connect a must-have
  • Quattro is standard


  • Still no standard rearview camera
  • Gas mileage isn't stellar on gas-only models
  • We're not sold by Drive Select's adaptive controls
  • Easy to spend more than $50,000
  • 3G connectivity comes with subscription fee
