Will strongly consider it, if the NX has certain features that I really like that are on my 2010 RX. So far I really like the styling of the NX, and I like that it's a little smaller than the RX. Frankly, I preferred the size of my Gen 2
2007 RX to the size of the 2010 RX.

Extended warranty on our 2008 RX400h runs out early next year, so the NX is definitely a candidate unless we can't get ventilated seats. In that case, the Lincoln MKC looks very interesting. The gen3 RX feels too big as it is, and I can't help but expect the gen4 to grow.

Went from the RX450h to the ct200h about 2 months ago and will now go the new NX300. Love the CT200h due to gas mileage of average 43mpg's. On the small size for a big man like myself. Will be glad to see the inside specs for leg room, etc. I have had numerous Rx's over the past 15 years and have loved them all. I do believe the NX300 will fit my needs.

Being a loyal RX owner, who has gone through floods snowstorms, tree branches, snow and ice, I would wait to see and really drive an nx. Then unless I fell in love with it might consiider trading it for my old IS.

Leaning more towards leasing the GS but the NX is runner up

Miles are adding up on my 350 (sitting at a bit over 105k) so that'd be gone to get the NX. Would get the 300h, but it'd depend on how the whole package feels

I'm going to get one not sure when and would much prefer the 300h.
Does anyone know if they are going to F-Sport the hybrid model. Hopefully they do.....if not , need to test drive both thoroughly I like 40mpg ....but better handling and 30mpg might suffice.

From what I've seen anecdotally across other vehicles, you'll never recoup the price of the hybrid option over the non-hybrid version. So yes, 40MPG sounds nice but what's the cost? Maybe some 400H owners would like to chime in?

No hybrid F-Sport for the N.American market. Expect around 35 mpgs for the 300h.

True, from a financial standpoint, hybrids have poor value propositions and take years to offset the initial cost increase. For me, having owned an RX 400h and a CT, the incredibly smooth and quiet powertrain and overall driving experience is why I bought the hybrids. The experience is the true definition of Lexus quietness and luxury - unparallelled! I would buy a 300h again if it came in F-Sport trim but I'll "settle" for the 2L Turbo 4cyl but at least it will have Start/Stop tech which will help save on fuel costs when stopped.

Being that my wife and I have discussed starting a family next year, I will trade in my IS350 for it. I've fallen for the NX since the concept, and I really like the production model (F-sport) alot.

Depends on mileage driven and MPG's and extra costs. I do agree within the same models yes. But, its changing as Hybrids become more mainstream costs come down and mileage is creeping up.

I own a CT200h Hybrid and its an F-Sport -Special Edition. So nothing to compare it too longterm.

I believe this truck will see in FWD an easy 38mpg maybe even 40mpg. The ES350 isn't exactly a light vehicle. I'm quite sure people are seeing 38-40 with that. Also its 35mpg is all around not just on the highway. Hybrids run cleaner......
ES350 same driveline is 3660lbs vs Rav4 3450 ..add a 100lbs for the hybrid the weights are close.

I also prefer the grill on the hybrid over the turbo model. Hopefully the costs will be much closer than the rx450h vs the rx350. One thing never mentioned is resale values......hybrid vs gas

Will have to wait to sit in one. I find the seats in the RAV 4 uncomfortable. I would not mind something smaller than the RX though.

Resale value on hybrids is generally higher. I also never see anyone mention the cost savings on brake jobs. Hybrids usually can go 2 to 3 times as many miles before needing any friction brake replacement. I don't about other Lexus vehicles but my IS350 was $1,300 for a brake job every 30k miles. I had brake work done at both independent shops and the dealership.

perhaps i have to see it in person, although from the photographs/videos, the vehicle is hideous. i have no idea where lexus is headed with some of the new designs, but it isn't in the right direction, imo.
