The Lexus NX has a styling that's striking enough to lead the pack but its cabin, surprisingly, remains to be a different story.

From the impeccable IS compact sedan to the ultra-refined RX SUV, Lexus has always been the Priority Passenger Service (PPS) Club member - one of the most prestigious and luxurious membership for frequent travellers.

The carmaker has been, unfailingly, providing drivers (and passengers) with limitless luxury feel and, not to mention, a level of smooth and seamless drivetrain that's practically unmatched.

Eye-catching sci-fi headlamps with a cool swoosh of daytime running lights are bound to steal glances


 
It is, thus, a bit of a disappointment when the recently launched Lexus NX, the compact SUV that shares parts with the Toyota RAV4, doesn't quite match up to the expectation - specifically in the cabin department.

Still, while it has been downgraded from PPS to KrisFlyer Elite Gold, the Lexus NX accumulates the highest miles with its striking styling that's dominated by razor-edged lines, a bold spindle grille and sleek headlamps.


Unlike most model lineups, where smaller-built cars always share some form of resemblance with the bigger brethren, the NX looks nothing like the bigger RX. It forms an immediate youthful impression and yet possesses such an aggressive face.

Bold lines accentuate the Lexus NX's sporty appearance


 
Either way, the NX is sure to gain stares of envy from passers-by and jealousy from drivers of the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 and the Volvo XC60.
