The all-new Lexus NX was revealed at the 2014 New York International Automobile Show on Sunday, April 20.
The new model is the brand’s first entry into the luxury compact crossover segment and is said to be the first turbo in the lineup.
The sharply styled NX will be offered in naturally aspirated and hybrid powertrains. The Show will run from April 18 – 27 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan and visitors will be the first in North America to view the new vehicle.

The U.S. market will offer the NX 200t turbo and NX 300h hybrid. The NX 200t F SPORT will also be available with unique exterior and interior features.
Both models are on display at the New York Auto Show. The NX will be the fourth vehicle in Lexus’ luxury utility vehicle lineup and positioned below the RX.
The Lexus LF-NX concepts, originally introduced at the 2013 Frankfurt and Tokyo Motor Shows, influenced the striking and emotional design of the NX.
The production version of the NX was developed to have more agility than a SUV plus a bold, eye-catching exterior with its low profile and unique roofline.
