Just when you thought Lexus was going to leave all of the good stuff in China at the Beijing Auto Show, Lexus suprised show visitors today with the debut stateside of the Lexus NX.  Making NYC the official place for coming up with a small SUV!  I also like the idea of showing off the vehicle directly to the people to build excitement, rather than release it on the press days.

The all-new Lexus NX crossover was revealed at the 2014 New York International Automobile Show today.  The new model is the brand’s first entry into the luxury compact crossover segment and is the first turbo in the lineup.  The sharply styled NX will be offered in naturally aspirated and hybrid powertrains.

The U.S. 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. Both models are on display at the New York Auto Show.

The NX will be the fourth vehicle in Lexus’ luxury utility vehicle lineup and positioned below the RX.

Additionally, the all-new 2015 Lexus NX crossover will be the first vehicle to incorporate HARMAN’s innovative Clari-Fi technology in its Mark Levinson Premium Surround Sound Audio System.


The Lexus LF-NX concepts, originally introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt and Tokyo Motor Shows, influenced the striking and emotional design of the NX. .


The NX was developed to have more agility than a SUV plus a bold, eye-catching exterior with its low profile and unique roofline.
