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. Among compact crossovers, the 2015 BMW X3 doesn't try to be rugged; instead it's one of the sportiest and most fuel-efficient in its class, and this year's new sDrive and diesel models add to that while the lineup gets even more tech and active-safety options.
