Just thinking about the 2015 Q3, which should be out end of year, price seems good with lots of good features, Not many reviews yet, but it's said to start at $30k.

Yea the Q3 seems like a great vehicle. It differs from the NX quite a bit in terms of styling. Definitely going after two different types of customers with the different styling choices. The NX has angles everywhere while the Q3 is very rounded.

Q3 is a small luxury crossover, should be a good competitor to the NX, doesn't look as good, but if the price is right and it's full of features, it should be good, still have to wait for reviews and US specs.

I can see that happening, audi seems good when it comes to value and being a new vehicle, maintenance and reliability shouldn't be too much of a concern.

Q3 v NX

I've been waiting for the NX for more than 2 yrs. From the initial info coming out it looks like Lexus will be pricing this with a starting price in the 36k range. For me that is too high a price point. I bought my first RX nicely loaded for that.

If this is the case...... I will be driving a new Q3 soon.

It definitely is worth looking into other options, as nice as Lexus is they're not always the absolute best to go with.

Also of note is wait times. the Q3 is built at three different facilities satisfying different markets. The NX's entire global production comes from one facility.

Demand is demand but if you dont have supply well you dont have very much do you ;)

Wow, you've known about the NX for 2 years! I've known about it for 2 months. If $ is too high for my taste, I'll get me a 2013 Santa Fe sport 2.0 T, I was planning on getting me a new one then, but my wife had just lost her job, so I couldn't do that, now I'm good financially, but I won't get me a crossover the size of an RAV4 if it's 45K total.

Totally agree. Pricing is essential, esp today. Lexus lost my larger vehicle purchase when the RX got out of control with their pricing. My dollars went to Land Rover - Evoque. So far the best decision I have made in a while!!!!

I priced out a Q3 on the Audi site. With nav, all wheel drive, blind side assist and rear view camera - around 38 thou and some change. Don't think that included shipping.:( And it is 10 inches shorter than the NX.

10 inches for real? I'm not doubting you it just seems like a drastic dichotomy especially for vehicles competing in segment...

Q3 has a 0-60 time of 7.8 secs, advantage NX. If only the prices for the NX were similar or lower, the NX would be the clear winner.
