The NX is okay.............nothing wrong with it but I guess it's not for me.

Personally I'd rather choose the following:
-Lexus RC-F
-BMW 335d xDrive wagon
-Toyota RAV4

I'm happy with 517 HP.
Heck, I'm happy with 500 HP MINIMUM. Lexus isn't required to do more than that BUT THEY SHOULD NOT SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN THAT.

Just like how an RC-F competes with an M4 and RS5, a GS-F will logically be a competitor to M5, E63, Jag XF-R

From what I've heard, it's an option.....so both RWD and AWD versions will be available (supposedly). This should satisfy one set of customers who want to go 'sideways'...
