Lexus will unveil its new luxury compact crossover, the Lexus NX, at the 2014 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition to be held in Beijing, China from 20-29 April. Lexus will exhibit the NX 200t equipped with a newly developed 2.0-liter turbo engine—the first turbo in the lineup—and the NX 300h equipped with a 2.5-liter hybrid system. The NX will also be offered with a naturally aspirated powertrain.
Evolved from the “Lexus LF-NX” concept introduced at the Frankfurt International Motor Show and the Tokyo Motor Show in 2013, the NX is Lexus’ first entry into the luxury compact crossover segment.
Powertrains will vary by region. The US market will offer the NX 200t turbo and NX 300h hybrid. The NX 200t F SPORT will also be available with unique exterior and interior features.
