A turbocharger and a touch pad are just two of the firsts the sharply styled NX 200t brings to the Lexus brand.
Lexus' newest crossover is also its smallest and most dramatically styled.
The 2015 Lexus NX 200t's tech, amenities, and fuel efficiency stack fairly evenly with the competition, but its slight power advantage and unique styling push it above the class average.
The Samsung NX200's photo quality stands out from the crowd, but its performance and features -- while good -- don't merit its relatively high price.
Like Sony's NEX series, the NX200 has a compact, reasonably well-designed body that tends to get overwhelmed by many of the lenses.
The NX200's good JPEG processing and relatively clean images for low-to-middle ISO sensitivities combined with solid exposures and accurate color result in excellent photo quality for its class.
The NX200 RS is functionally identical to the original NX200, but sports a metallic-chrome top plate.
While the NX200 shows promise in the increasingly competitive interchangeable-lens camera field, it may be pricing itself out of a win.
