Serial compact crossover Lexus, which is made on the base of the concept car LF-NX, will be declassified at the Beijing Motor Show (previously reported that the novelty will be shown in Geneva). Trading off-road vehicle version will be called NX.
It is expected that NX be offered with different types of aggregates as its prototype was designed in two versions. The first variant, shown last September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, was a hybrid powerplant from Lexus ES 300h. It includes an electric motor and a 2.5-liter gasoline engine that runs on the Atkinson cycle.

Two months later, at the Motor Show in Tokyo, the Japanese presented another version of LF-NX, equipped with two-liter “turbofour” with direct fuel injection and variable valve timing. About the impact of aggregates were not yet reported.

Presumably, the novelty will receive an upgraded platform of the crossover Toyota RAV4. Lexus NX will be offered with both front and all-wheel drive.
Sales crossover will begin the end of 2014. The new “Lexus” will compete with Audi Q3, BMW X1, as well as Mercedes-Benz GLA and Lincoln MKC.
