Regarding the MKC, I don't think that it's as good as some make it out to be, or as bad as others see it. It seems to be selling 2,000-2,300 units per month here in the US. My guess is that it will...

The hybrid should have no problem merging in traffic, passing etc. When Consumer Reports tested the ES350 and ES300h their 0-60 times were 6.7 and 8.2 seconds respectively so there is a gap between...

After very good experience with back to back Lexi, I'd certainly consider getting back into another one.

We currently have an Audi and after 2 1/2 years no issues at all - Just a couple of oil/filter changes and that's been it.

Even with the good record so far, I won't keep it much beyond the factory...

The luxury compact CUV segment is really hot right now. A great time to be shopping if one is in the market in this segment. No surprise that the NX is doing so well. Between the NX and RX, Lexus...

A lot of publications compare the NX to the X1, Q3 and GLA. It seems from a pricing, size etc. standpoint the NX competes more with X3, Q5, GLK, MKC etc. That's who Lexus said they are targeting.

That 20-70 or so range is definitely the sweet spot with these small turbos. Very nice for merging, passing or just having some fun. My Q5 starts running out of steam in the 70-80 range. Nothing...

+1 These small turbos take some getting used to. Once off idle and moving things are fine. Even with all of the new technology (twin scroll etc.) there is some lag now and then.

I hope they don't go with the great protruding-type of schnoz like the NX and RX. Maybe something toned down a bit would better serve a sedan like the ES. Bigger isn't always better.

Neither the NX or new RX are my cup of tea, but I do see how both will probably appeal to a younger/new demographic for the Lexus brand and should do well.

Photos of the NX seemed to accentuate the prominent protrusion too. Still not my cup of tea but in real life, not quite as bad.
