well, it is an SUV... it will not handle like IS or 3 series.... too much weight up top. In fact, it is likely taller than Venza but also lighter.

I personally would like it to have a mix of good drive for its class and comfort. Too often these small SUV's end up being too stiff in order to drive better. It might be great when mags test it on track, but in real life, I have many bumps on my regular driving routes. So being best of both worlds is IMHO the most important part.

^^^ Agree. I'm expecting suspension comfort is "at worst", like my IS or RX F-Sport which are both decent, but my hope is for slightly more comfort.

As for the other posts above, not to beat up a dead horse but comparing any aspects of an MDX to an NX is like comparing a heavy-weight boxer to a light-weight boxer - pointless.

We can all stop speculating and start reading when Lexus lifts the embargo on July 6th and those who have test driven the NX can write about the experience.

I hope regular models will not be too stiff... in every spec i red, AVS is optional on F-Sport only.

Also, I just read in some aussie mag that it has those fake sounds like IS, thats cool.
