Production Lexus NX Compact Crossover to Debut at the Geneva Motor Show?


Lexus LF-NX Production

Auto Express is reporting that the production version of the Lexus LF-NX concept will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next March:

Previewed by the striking LF-NX concept, first shown at the Frankfurt show in September, the compact SUV will retain the concept’s stand-out styling, according to Lexus’ European director Paul Van der Burgh. “What we’re finding is that these days customers want to be more expressive, so a lot of the concept’s inherent design will come out in the finished car.

“We’ve seen the finished design, we know what it will look like and it will definitely stand apart. Why would you want something that looked like everything else in the segment? Our customers have always wanted a combination of design and technology, but design has definitely become more important,” Van der Burgh said.

Auto Express also suggests that the production NX will be arriving in dealerships next summer — the compact crossover is expected to debut with the 2.0L turbo engine that was introduced at last month’s Tokyo Motor Show, and will also be offered with the 2.5L hybrid powertrain currently offered on the IS & GS.

    Production will start on July 2014. (RC: 10.2014)
    And I guess we will see the NX on Detroit Motor Show, next January.

    I love the concept as it keeps growing on me so this is exciting news the production version will be close to it. If pricing is like the RDX, I’m in !

    All the other compact crossovers will give the Lexus NX their lunch money….
