Production Lexus NX Compact Crossover Released in August 2014?

Lexus NX Mag-X

Japanese magazine Mag-X has published some information on the upcoming Lexus NX compact crossover — here are the main points, roughly translated:

  • The Lexus NX will use the same chassis platform as the RAV4.
  • The production model could reach dealerships in August 2014.
  • Measurements could be 4550 × 1845 × 1660mm (length x width x height)

Along with the rendering above, Mag-X also created this rear view:

While the LF-NX concept was only marginally smaller than the RX, a production NX crossover based on the RAV4 chassis would increase the size difference (NX: 4550mm long, RX: 4770mm long) — this is very important if Lexus wants to avoid the two models competing against one another.
