The guys at autobytel took the Lexus NX out and measured its acceleration times. The best that they got with the 200t AWD was a 0-60 mph time of 8.2 seconds with the driving mode set to SPORT and the Traction Control tuned OFF. It is also worth noting that the NX was teased at a high elevation, so that makes the 8.2 second time a bit more impressive. It was also a pre-production model.

Remind me...at high elevation, does a Turbo help? I thought that at high elevation, a turbo should be more productive than a regular aspirated engine, right?

For me, if the "performance" version of NX does not get in the low 7s (0-60), then it is a disappointment...and may not be competitive enough. Then the NX will just rely on the Lexus nameplate to attract customers.

I also hope the performance version does go that fast, they really need to make sure it can play with some of the top dogs in it's segment in all, if not most area's

Does that mean that you are going to wait for a performance model to come out, or are you just saying that a performance model should probably go fast to be competitive?
