The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The dramatic lines on the Lexus NX keep it a compelling rival to pint-size luxury SUVs from BMW and Mercedes, but it could be more spacious. The 2020 Volvo XC40 honed in on the Netflix and Stitch Fix crowd, with smart dynamics and style and an all-in subscription plan.
