Thats a bit unfortunate, i think aussies would really want the 2.0T over a hybrid, cost being one of them.
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/04/new-lexus-nx-spotted-out-in-wild-us.htmlLexus confirmed the U.S. range for the new NX that will appear in showrooms this fall offering buyers a choice of two models, the NX 200t with a 235hp (238PS) 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline four and the NX 300h featuring a 194hp (197PS) 2.5-liter inline-four hybrid powertrain. Both models will be available in front- and all-wheel drive layouts.
well if the take rate is going to be abysmal there's no sense for Lexus to even import...australians too ballin for the nx200
Confirmed since day one. I am still confused about this thread....maybe no market for a cheap lexus there
the nx200 probably wont make it to north america either? the non turbo version
Not to jump on you further, but why would you be skeptical? Toyota/Lexus said this in China introduction AND press release.im skeptical
does anyone really want that underpowered of a car?
that is so true, they basically need to find the right mixture of just enough for what they are building the power plant for. So far they seem to have been doing a good job of thatPeople in lots of places don't want an "underpowered" car, and that is why Lexus isn't selling the lowest trim model in a lot of places. Some people just don't care that much about how fast their car goes, it's more about the luxury of the car. If you are driving on busy city streets all the time, it just doesn't really matter how fast your car is capable of going. You can't go faster than the car in front of you.

Some people (in China?) prefer saving gas over outright performance. Honda CRV is one the slowest SUV, yet sells like pancakes! Lexus CT200h is the slowest $35k car yet is being offered here in the States.
