The all-new Lexus NX made a surprise debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show this weekend. The visitors appreciated the automaker`s idea to show its small SUV directly to the people to cause excitement, instead of releasing it on the press days.
With this model the automaker enters the segment of luxury compact crossover. According to a company press release, it`s also the first turbo in the lineup. 2015 Lexus NX crossover is the first car to include HARMAN’s innovative Clari-Fi technology in its Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System.
NX is designed to have more agility compared with a SUV and bold, winning exterior with unique roofline and low profile.
The manufacturer confirmed that sharply styled Lexus NX will be sold in “naturally aspirated and hybrid powertrains”. NX 200t turbo and NX 300h hybrid will be available in the U.S market. The NX 200t F SPORT will be offered with unique interior and exterior features. Both models are displayed at the New York Auto Show. Both models, to be available in front – and all-wheel drive layouts, will appear in showrooms this autumn
Select international markets, including Russia and China, will get also a base NX 200 model with a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated gasoline unit matched to a Sequential-Continuously Variable Transmission (S-CVT)/Multi-drive transmission.
How much will it cost?
The automaker hasn`t revelaed the pricing, although it’s binding that it be cheaper than the bigger RX.
