The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Lexus NX is a new direction for Lexus and a capable, smooth crossover that could use a little more smoothing around the corners. The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class makes a terrific combination of the features and practical needs most buyers want in an attractive package.
