Set to debut in Beijing next week.
Teased earlier this week, Lexus has now unveiled the all-new NX – the carmaker's maiden voyage into the world of the compact crossover. Based off the LF-NX concept and borrowing the design language from the IS sedan, these initial batch of images show the NX to be a distinctly sporty crossover well equipped to battle the likes of the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. The styling of the NX combines the sharp angles that characterize the IS and a front end sporting the brand's signature spindle grille and a nicely refined set of headlights.
LED taillights and 17-inch alloys comes as standard, however the big news is underhood where for the first time Lexus has fitted a turbocharged engine. Where the NX 200 will use a normally-aspirated 2.0-liter unit, a 2.0-liter turbo-four will feature in both the NX 200t and NX 200t F Sport. There are no other details about this or the 2.5-liter four cylinder hybrid powerplant in the NX 300h, but the Beijing Motor Show kicks off next week so we'll know soon enough. The interior looks suitably plush with a blend off leather, wood and metal. The black interior with red bucket seats almost certainly belongs to the F Sport model, while new features include a Wireless Charging Tray and new Lexus Remote Touch Interface.
