2016 Lexus NX

All-new last year, the Lexus NX isn’t the most athletic option in the class, but it has the luxurious cabin and smooth ride you’d expect of a Lexus, and its predicted reliability rating is strong for a luxury compact SUV. For its combination of quality and long-term value, we named the NX the 2016 Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money.

The NX was flying off dealer lots when it first hit the market last year, but since then, demand has fallen steadily. It’s currently taking Lexus dealers 59 days to sell an NX, which is over a month longer than the turnover rate a year ago. Prices have fallen by about 3.5 percent in that timespan, and the NX is now $3,500 (8 percent) cheaper than the average luxury compact SUV.

If you’ve been eyeing an NX for a while, now is a good time buy. Sagging demand means you’ll have a lot of negotiating power at the dealership. Before you go, take a look at our Best Price Program to find which dealer is offering the lowest price near you.
