Lexus has announced that it will be adding a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine for the NX 200t in the UK. Lexus said that deliveries of this added engine model will begin in the middle of March and will be priced from £38,095.

The NX 200t will join the NX 300h hybrid, which has been on sale since October 2014 and starts at £29,495.

The big news here is the introduction of the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. It is the first ever turbocharged engine created by Lexus. This engine produces 235 horsepower and has a peak torque output of 350 Nm.

thinking about other powertrains.... could this be a model that goes fully electric?
it seems to be the only SUV they have to be worthy of that.

Have they stated this publicly or are you just assuming?
Lexus is launching their long awaited small crossover at this month’s Beijing Auto Show. Dubbed the NX, it will be the first Lexus product with a turbocharged engine.


Aside from the 2.0T engine, a naturally aspirated NX200 and an NX300h hybrid (which shares its powertrain with the Lexus ES300h) will also be offered. Exact specs haven’t been announced.
As of now its only launched in Russia...
