RX to get the NXs 2.0T in select markets

“Compared to the current-generation RX 270, you’ll notice that a major appeal point of the RX 200t is its ability to deliver seamless and continuous acceleration up to the mid- to high-speed range,” Katsuda explained.
The output of the powertrain, which features VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide) and a low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger with air-to-liquid intercooler, will be aimed to provide more than 228 hp (170 kW). The gear ratios of the 6-speed automatic transmissions provide excellent acceleration off-the-line and exceptional passing power.

So I guess this model is aimed at China mostly.

The 2.0L turbocharged engine option will be offered in select markets around the world (including China, obviously), but will not be coming to North America.
I like how Lexus Enthusiast finished the article with this:

(It’s easy to be disappointed that the RX 200t won’t be offered in all markets, but honestly, Lexus is already maxing out on North American RX sales with the RX 350 & RX 450h.)
