Tokyo Motor Show: Lexus LF-NX ConceptWed, 20 Nov 2013
WHILE this striking LF-NX concept might have only made its debut a few months a go, for the Tokyo Motor Show Lexus has unveiled an updated version of its striking compact SUV.
With its bold grille generating plenty of column inches, the premium Japanese car maker has decided to remodel the car’s nose slightly as it continues on its path towards eventual production status.
Also new is the inclusion of a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, which is likely to feature alongside Lexus’ usual hybrid offering. LF-NX aside, the engine is significant as it’s the firm’s first 2.0-litre petrol turbo motor.
The LF-NX is part of its maker’s long-term plan to expand its SUV offerings, with this concept eventually spawning a car to compete alongside Range Rover’s Evoque.
As yet there is no firm news on when the production version will appear.
