that is true, with that much power and only requiring you to use 87 octane, it's really a killer combo, going premium just doesn't cut it, which i'm afraid the lexus might require.

The Lexus will require premium. Using regular in the MKC 2.3 at the moment would save about 10% on fuel costs over premium where I am. To me that makes the equivalent MPG pretty decent, and for the type of driving I do it will probably bring it close to the 24 MPG combined of the NX.

There are a lot of things I like about the NX, but my interest in it has been waning since packaging details were released. What I would consider a fully loaded NX can't be purchased, especially in the US. If you want adaptive variable suspension, the boost meter, or a front profile that isn't a beak you have to buy the F-Sport that doesn't have a bunch of creature comforts available. If you live in the US there's also no 835 Watt sound system, HUD, Surround view parking assistance, or pano roof available. The official 0-60 is the slowest, or close to it, in class.

They also need to get crackin' on a larger turbo now that they've got a small one. Lexus is so concerned about reliability that it takes them eons to come out with these conservative powertrains.

On a side note, the X3 and Q5 are up for major redesign in the coming years, which is semi-relevant to me since I'll be buying a 2016 MY vehicle most likely. The segment will really be cutthroat when that happens.

I am not a fan of VW/Audi reliability, but the 354 HP, 516 lbft torque triple turbo diesel (3rd turbo is actually electric driven to eliminate lag) really has me drooling.

Maybe the X3 will finally have cooled seats at that point

The Q5 is what i look forward to. Always loved audi design and what they will do to the next gen model is what is on my mind.

The Lexus and Caddy both look like they belong in a Transformer movie.

Too polarizing for me.

I should also note that doesn't include $925 destination charge. Package info was also posted here:
