From RX TO NX

I am picking up my NX tomorrow and turning in my RX. YOHOO!

i like the fact that it is a little smaller and i hope that I Will be happy with my decision to "downsize"

Anyone here coming from RX350 and if so how has it been? Any remorse on the decision?

Good choice going with an NX.
Do you have need that SUV's like the RX and NX fulfill or do you just like Lexus SUV's?

What color did you get?

Both SUVs get good reviews. As long as you are happy with ahving a smaller vehicle you shouldn't have a problem with the switch.

What made you decide to downsize? Empty nest? Just downsizing to save some money since you didn't use the space anyway?

And welcome to the forum!

To save some money. Also, I am only 5'8" and i feel that the NX IS a better fit.

Now that you've had it for a bit, are you happy with the decision to downsize? Do you miss your RX at all?

Yup.
That's what I noticed on my first test drive, great nimble SUV with decent capability. Lexus did well!

Since they upsized the RX for the next generation it might impact how they handle, might not be as great as yours was.

Generally it makes sense for a smaller vehicle to have better handling so I'm glad that's what you are observing with the NX. Let us know your thoughts as they come to you. Most people love the NX, but it doesn't come out on top in every comparison, so I'm sure there are a few things that could be improved.

To an extent yeah, less weight to deal with, better turning radius, etc. But it's also in part due to how the vehicle is tuned, suspension being one of them.
