The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
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. The 2015 Mercedes GLA isn't the roomiest small crossover, but it's a stylish vehicle with a double shot of urban attitude--and a dash of ruggedness--that looks fully up to Mercedes-Benz luxury standards.
