All-new Lexus NX Compact Crossover revealed with marque's first turbo engine

The NX is Lexus’s entry into the luxury compact crossover segment, going against the likes of BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3.

The NX is a toned down version of the LF-NX concept, that we saw last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but its styling is still quite different and you either like it or not.

The concept had plenty of sharp lines and the production model is clearly sleeker, but still easily recognised, especially with its huge spindle grille. 17-inch alloy wheels are standard and 18-inch wheels optional.

The biggest news is that the NX is the brand’s first model with a turbocharged engine.

Depending on the market, three models will be available.

The NX 200t uses an all-new 2.0-litre turbo turbo, the NX 200 gets a naturally aspirated engine, both with the choice of front and all-weather drive. Finally there will be a highly efficient hybrid in NX 300h.

The NX 200t F SPORT will also be available with unique exterior and interior features, as well as enhanced driving performance.

Final specs will be released later this month, when the NX makes its public debut at the Beijing Motor Show.
