2020 Lexus NX vs. Its Competition

2020 Lexus NX 300 Black Line Edition
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The NX is smaller than its German and Japanese rivals, though it’s bigger than those makers’ pint-size SUVs.

For some buyers, it may be the ideal recipe.

The BMW X3 is an appealing, low-stress crossover with good features and strong turbocharged engines.

The Mercedes GLC has more design flair and can be had with healthy AMG power for a hefty price.

Infiniti’s QX50 has a high-tech engine, but it feels like it’s playing catch up with other luxury brands.

The Jaguar E-Pace is small but has an upmarket feel that appeals, and its styling is top-notch.

We like the Acura RDX for its impressive dynamics, but its user interface is also complicated.
