Lexus has been curiously absent from the lifestyle vehicle sector since introducing its popular RX SUV in 1998. It has instead focused its efforts on introducing its hybrid technology across its hatchback and saloon model ranges, leaving German rivals to establish themselves with a robust range of offerings in the large crossover market. That's all about to change, however, with the launch of the Japanese marque's first-ever compact SUV, the NX.
