Lexus NX 200t F SPORT Finishes Second in Car & Driver Compact Crossover Comparison

Lexus NX Car & Driver Comparison

Car & Driver has published a comparison with the Lexus NX 200t FSPORT, Audi Q3 Quattro, BMW X1 xDrive28i, Infiniti QX30, and Mercedes GLA250 4MATIC — the NX finished second overall behind the BMW:

The NX’s cockpit remains serene no matter how treacherous the road. While the rest of our convoy bobbed, bounced, and pogoed over expansion joints on what appeared to be a freshly paved stretch of I-75, the Lexus only conveyed its annoyance audibly, with the steady thwap-thwap-thwap of its tires.

The boosted four-cylinder feels more linear than most, and the six-speed transmission is seamless enough for its changes to be invisible to the inattentive driver.
