New Rumors on the Lexus Compact Crossover

Lexus NX 200t

Mag-X is on a roll with the Lexus rumors — first it was details on a production coupe in 2014, and now the Japanese magazine is reporting the muchdiscussed compact crossover will also be released by August of next year.

The news also includes some potential engine options — the NX 200t would be powered by 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder; and the NX 300h would share the same 2.5L hybrid engine from the new IS 300h.

Along with the image above, there’s a second illustration that we’ve seen already:

(While I do like the idea of the compact crossover using design elements from the IS, these illustrations leave a lot to be desired.)
