The NX will be a X3 competitor and it should annihilate the X3, not a hard thing to do since the X3 has set the standard very low LOL

Annihilate (sounds serious)? How so?

Here in the U.S. all of the major luxury compact CUV's (X3, Q5, GLK etc.) sell in about the same numbers. Actual buyers seem to like them about equally. I would guess that the NX will fall in with the rest of them sales wise.

Every time Lexus brings a new product in a certain segment it's always the best.

Tough to beat BMW IMO. They have all bases covered with the 1,3,4,5,6 and their brand appeals strongly to those looking for compact lux suvs. Total BMW SUV sales surpass Lexus by quite a bit.

You're right, the HS250 positively destroyed the market, which is why it's outselling Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Cadillac. Oh wait, they actually pulled it from the market because it was such a spectacular failure....

Step away from the kool-aid... Lexus has hits and misses, just like any manufacturer.

Still have to see if the present GS has legs.

Every brand has their hits and misses. None are immune from missteps.

This is simply not true, RX alone outsold X1, X3, X5 and X6 in 2013 in the USA.


With RX and NX, they should get 30% more than BMW.

surely that is a CT ??

if that's an NX, it will reinforce my point that concept cars are largely pointless! and if it is, it would seem to have NOTHING in common with the mad max concept.

Can you supply a reference?, I'm taking about the third gen RX.

It doesn't even have a spindle grill. Just some photo from the early CT days.
