It is weird that they don't talk about the NX as much. I think there is a tendency to only talk about the Germans. Everything else is an alternative to the German brands. It's one of things where even if the NX is a better vehicle, people will still flock to the German brands because of the brand reputation.

NX is too new for most to have heard about it. Even I heard about it by accident on another forum, if it weren't for that I wouldn't even know about the NX.

that is true, i'm sure that once Lexus is ready to promote it they will do a serious job, they want this to be one of the top selling vehicles for the brand.

Of course it will, then why do so many journalists completely ignore the NX when discussing the luxury crossover segment? Its all GLA, Q3, X1...

I know that Lexus fans like to claim bias with magazines/blogs, but i don't see it. NX is new like Joe said. For the longest time, i hear about Car & Driver or MotorTrend or etc. bias towards Germans because they are paid by Germans. That is simply not true IMO.

I half agree Thai. The bias is not paid bias, just inherent bias due to the nature of the writers. They're enthusiasts and speed junkies, Lexus (baring LFA) simply does not tickle those fancies for them, where as the Germans have always provided the type of engagement that they seek in all cars.

I believe the journalists are more responsible for the perception of the Germans brands than the Germans brands themselves...
