Best Luxury Compact SUVs in 2016: Photos and Details

2 of 14

No. 3 (Tie): 2016 Lexus NX

Overall Score: 8.5

The 2016 Lexus NX won our Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money award, and it's easy to see why. Its reasonable $34,965 base price and full list of features make it an appealing option if you want something that's practical and upscale.

The base Lexus NX has a 235-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers decent power, though rivals like the BMW X3 have more powerful base engines and stronger optional engines. It's the NX's combination of composed handling and smooth ride that will make its performance appealing to the majority of SUV buyers.
