Lexus RX 200t Trademark Registered in Australia

Lexus RX 200t

Lexus has registered RX 200t as a trademark in Australia, indicating that a fourth engine option for the SUV may be offered in the future.

Registered on April 4th, 2013 under trademark #1550008, this continues the speculation that Lexus will be receiving the new 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder previously announced by Toyota. It will also be the second Lexus model to trademarked with this new 200t suffix — the mystery NX 200t was registered late last year in the USA, Canada, and Australia. The NX is rumored to be a brand new compact crossover model.

(This turbocharged four-cylinder could make its way through most of the Lexus lineup — beside this RX 200t & the NX 200t, the engine is also rumored to be used in the new IS at some point.)
