This is a new for Lexus, it’s the brand’s compact crossover, and there’s not of a mystery behind why they’re this, compact crossover are a white-hot market segment all the world right now, and luxury SUVs and crossovers are hot.

The Lexus brand has fairly well in the U.S. but it gained much traction in and it’s way way behind the big three luxury brands in China. is hoping that the new Lexus NX help boost the brand in Europe and China, and that the new NX a pretty important vehicle for
