Watched it on another forum.

Hybrid: 8.5, 8.8, 8.4
Turbo: 8.8, 8.5, 8.2

Times between the hybrid and turbo are almost the same, something is wrong here.

What happened to 0 to 60 in the low 7 second range as claimed by Lexus?

Those times aren't too bad, plus it's not like most of the buyers of these will care much about what it does in the 0-60

Also, If all I'm gonna get is 8 sec out of the turbo, I'll get me a used 2013 Santa Fe, and if I want performance I'll get me a used 2013 RDX, I'm not willing to dish out 40K for an 8 sec car that is supposed to do 7 secs according to the manufacturer, I'm getting tired of those 4 turbos that have no performance, all that for fuel economy, the RDX V6 gets 27mpg , does 0-60 in 6.5 secs and has linear power and torque curves. If everyone wants to makes 4 banger turbo CUV's that weight 4,000lbs, they should go with 2.5 L, not 2.0L, save those 2.0L engines for cars that weigh 3,000lbs or so. Not willing to spend money on a turbo CUV that doesn't do any better than the hybrid model. All I can say is, one day when the 200t is in the dealerships, I'll go test drive everything I'm considering, the 200t, the 300h to see how it compares off the line, the Santa Fe sport turbo, and the RDX, needless to say, the performance and the price of the 200t better be good or I'll stop considering it.
