Citroen C4 cactus! What king of a stupid name is that! As if C4 wasn't enough, they add cactus to it, wtf!
Anyway, hope the NX will get good praises and that they won't whine too much about the F sport grille.

Do you think that there is pressure to choose cars that are being sold in the US and China since those are the biggest markets? Car of the Year seems like it should be a globally sold car, or at least close to.

Porsche Macan. If price is not a huge factor in the competition, Macan will win...rather easily i would think. Macan, like pretty much every Porsche, is quite impressive if your pockets are deep enough. I just don't see where NX is superior to Macan other than price and maybe perceived reliability.

I know that i am not in car economics, but i hate it that Lexus limits certain options to certain markets. Porsche opens everything up, all depending on your wallet. As a luxury brand, Lexus needs to allow this! If i want Mark Levinson or PCS, then i should be able to PAY FOR IT.

Yup, Macan will easily take the win, in it's segment it should prove to be the best. One of the bigger things porsche has going for them with the macan is that it's design is to die for, something i can see many basing most of their buying decision off of.

Macan rear end is fugly to many, but so is the the NX front end, so we'll see.
I always thought I was the only one that wasn't a big fan of the Macan. I find its design boring. It has so little sculpting. The NX is at the total other end of the spectrum.

While Macan's exterior design may not excite, everything underneath (when optioned out) is to die for....

You can get every option under the sun...and then you have Macan's performance in probably every category, which is class leading by a long shot.
