Purchaser Demographics Thread

As the first NX from Lexus, I presume that the NX is going to draw a different buyer demographic than other Lexus models.

I'm curious on the age or age group that some of the people on this forum fall into. Is the NX skewing younger than the average Lexus buyer, or at least the average Lexus RX buyer, now that a smaller crossover is available?


Please post whether you've:
•Ordered a Lexus NX
•Plan to buy (and in approximately how many months
•Just exploring

As well as your age, and anything else you're willing to share that will allow all of us to paint a more accurate picture on just who exactly is buying the NX. This can be a fun thread.

Me:
•25 years old
•Plan to buy in about 5 to 6 months
•This will be my first Lexus, so the NX is definitely a gateway vehicle to the Lexus brand in my case
•Engineer
•Technology enthusiast

I plan to buy a 300h as soon as it is available in the Boston area. I am 62 and have had an infiniti for the past 9 yrs. this would be my first Lexus. The NX appeals to me as a luxury cross over that is good for road trips my wife and I plan to take after I retire next year. Plan to pay cash, keep it for 10 yrs and benefit from the fuel efficiency. I too am an engineer and have spent 40 yrs with a high tech company so NX does have geek appeal

Interesting to read the replies already, let's keep it going! So far it appears everyone here aside from myself is 40 and above.

42, Field Technician Sup. Plan to buy something as soon as the price is released for the NX, whether or not it is a Lexus. If we buy the NX, This will be our first Lexus, we had purchased Honda, Toyota, Nissan in the past, This is our first step up to a "Luxury" brand. Also considered, RDX, GLA, X3, and the BMW i3...........Dont know how that got in the running...LOL. I think the "Younger" Gens like the German brands. I have a friend whos sister is in her early 30's and she didnt even consider Lexus, Acura or Infinity. Only Mercedes and BMW. They are looking at what kind of cars that would make them look/feel good driving and if they can afford the Lease, not how long it will last. JMHO.

motorcycles are too impractical to be ridden everyday any more.

Cool to see how there are both younger and older folks who are looking to buy the NX. I bet Lexus is happy about this.
