Today AutoExpress brings some new information on the NX:

Lexus has revealed that its new NX crossover will arrive in the UK in October, and prices are expected to start at around £30,000 – putting it in close contention with its Audi Q5 and BMW X3 rivals.

A sporty front-wheel-drive NX200t F Sport is likely to join the range later. This will be powered by an all-new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which is a replacement for Lexus’ ageing 205bhp 2.5-litre V6, and will be used in the IS line-up, too. It produces around 240bhp, and promises a significant improvement in emissions and fuel efficiency as well.
So in line with what we have speculated here lately. A Q4 2014 release date as a 2015 MY vehicle.

Yep that is along what we've been hearing

Late 2014 as a 2015 model

Great news. Get rid of that useless V6.

This new 4 cylinder better make more power than 205bhp and alot more torque

Even 240hp is kind of low.. Those turbos must be in snooze mode.

What do you think the £30,000 price tag for the Lexus NX will translate to for us in North America?

Somewhere in the $50,000s?

Considering the RX350 starts at 39k

I'm not sure how in the world Lexus will sell the NX at 50k....

That is Porsche Macan pricing.

Going off of all the info out and knowing how they want to grow the brand it seems like an F-Sport model will be possible, even an F model. NX-F ?
