Lexus finally enters the luxury compact SUV market with the Toyota RAV4-based NX.
Lexus's first turbo engine, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed automatic, works well and delivers 24 mpg overall.
The NX 300h hybrid uses a 194-hp engine with a CVT, and its 29 mpg overall makes it the most fuel efficient SUV we've ever tested.
The NX delivers a sportier, less cushy driving experience than the larger RX.
The interior is adorned with nice stitching but some cheap touches are evident, and the cabin is very tight, with compromised visibility.
The dash gets a multipurpose center screen controlled by a fussy touchpad that requires a distracting level of focus to manipulate.
