Lexus cleaned up in the luxury categories at Kelley Blue Book's 2015 best resale value awards. KBB looked at current vehicle data, sales data, market conditions for each vehicle, competition within vehicle segments, expectations of the future economy and combines them all to come up with which vehicles will bet retain their value over five years.

Lexus won the entry-level luxury car segment with the RC 350 with the Lexus GS and Lexus IS coming in second and third respectively. They also won the best overall luxury car category with the Lexus GS 350 and the high=-end luxury segment was won with the Lexus LS 460.

Lexus crossovers and SUVs also did well with the GX460, LX570 and RX450h all winning their segments. No mention of the NX though.

Not surprised one bit, this has been the case with them ever since they entered the north american market and i don't see it changing any time soon..

It is a great thing to know about the vehicle you are buying, but I didn't see any mention of the NX in this study. Do you think the NX will also have high resale value?

what do you think looking at the trend here?
Well, if I had to take a guess I would say it is going to get good resale value, but it is a new model and a bit outside the norm with its styling so there is room for variance. Likely it is following in the footsteps of its brethren though.

I can see the trend holding up probably even more with the NX seeing the response consumers have of it so far which was quite amazing to say the least.

How is projected resale value calculated? I assume that it is based on a number of factors like reliability, popularity, etc... Anyone know for sure?

Styling has been well received by many and I don't see it being an issue, if anything it's an influential factor to follow this trend as it's design will age well.

You think the design will age well? I am not sure if I can say one way or another at this point. It does kinda seem like something that might not age well.
