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 2017 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.
