Turbo petrol shows Lexus’s ambition with NX


The Lexus NX crossover has been a hit overseas, however more importantly for Toyota and Lexus, is the fact that the range is set to gain a turbo-petrol motor in the new NX 200t.


The NX 200t will be available exclusively in F Sport trim with all-wheel drive with performance dampers as standard, alluding to its more dynamic promise.

New 2.0-litre turbocharged engine

The new unit has been developed in-house and displaces 1 998cc and is matched to a newly developed six-speed automatic transmission with a Drive Mode Select system.

Maximum power 175kW/350Nm which is bang on target for an engine of this kind. In this particular model the engine is coupled with a Dynamic Torque Control all-wheel drive system, which maximises traction and can transfer up to 50 percent of available torque to the rear wheels.
