Lexus NX

It might be classified as an SUV, but you won't see the Lexus NX taking on trails anytime soon. Instead, this new offering was designed for urban use, with a striking, angular compact body that offers maximum creature comforts in minimal space. It's powered by either a hybrid system with a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine, generator, motor and battery, a 2.0L turbo engine, or a normally aspirated 2.0L, and sits on either 17- or 18-inch wheels. Inside, you'll find forward-thinking features like a wireless charging tray, a new touchpad-based interface, and a Panoramic View Monitor that combines video from four cameras to provide a glimpse of everything happening around the car — perfect for avoiding pedestrians and other urban-specific obstacles.
