Not simply is it excellent to view Lexus Lexus entering the compact-crossover section, but it is also wonderful to see that it is doing so in design. The massive pin grille appears to sit just right on the nose of the brand-new NX, the air intakes flanking the grille are wonderful and stylish and the body lines are simply unbelievable. The sexiness proceeds from the side profile, as the jumping roofline, lower physical body sculpting and wide rear tire arcs are something out of the standard for Lexus.
Lexus continued to be relatively mum on the drivetrain, just revealing primarily fundamental details. I did discover that the NX will certainly be readily available in 3 main variations: NX 200, NX 200t, and NX 300h. The NX 200 will certainly showcase a naturally aspirated, 2.0-liter engine. The NX 200t will include a brand new, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that I anticipate to drain around 225 horsepower. Ultimately, the NX 300h will be a hybrid model that will likely tote around a 2.5-liter hybrid drivetrain with around 180 horsepower. Expect at least the hybrid model to come with a CVT, yet potentially the whole NX lineup.

Prices are likewise pretty subtle in the meantime, yet to stay affordable, Lexus needs to cheapen The compact BMW BMW, Audi, Land Rover and Mercedes small SUVs. Offered the simply two that have actually established prices are the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque at $42,025 and the X1 beginning at $31,825. Given Audi’s system of always undercutting BMW by a few grand, I see the Q3 striking $29,900, and with Mercedes Mercedes commonly signing in a few grand over Bimmer, I see the GLA-Class being available in at $33,000. This provides us a reasonable beginning estimation for the NX 200 of $27,500. Anticipate the NX 200t to strike about $30,000 and the NX 300h ahead in about $34,000.
