This past week I got an opportunity to drive Lexus’ new baby crossover, the NX. Leading off Lexus’ crossover lineup, the NX is smaller and nimbler than the RX, and definitely the more striking.

There’s supercar guys, there’s muscle car guys, and of course, there’s off-road guys. The off-road guys take pride in their selection of 4x4s that regularly includes Jeeps and classic Land Rovers.
