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.
We like the Acura RDX for its impressive dynamics, but its user interface is complicated.
Infiniti’s QX50 has a high-tech engine, but it feels like it’s playing catch up with other luxury brands.
Cadillac’s XT4 seems somber in comparison with some of these crossovers, and lacks the polish of the GLC and X3.
