The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Lexus NX is an expressively styled and comfortable compact luxury crossover, but its mix of features faces significant new competitors this year. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.
