Turbocharged Lexus LF-NX Concept to Debut at Tokyo Motor Show

Lexus LF-NX Turbo Concept

Lexus will be showing a new turbocharged LF-NX concept alongside the production RC coupe at the Tokyo Motor Show:

The Lexus LF-NX concept, which made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year, has been outfitted with a newly-developed 2.0-liter turbo engine for guaranteed power and improved fuel economy.

A lower center of gravity, emphasized by the front under spoiler, gives the turbo model a sportier look. The LF-NX cuts a lean profile, with its compact, sharp body and bold tires conveying SUV-unique power and an exciting drive. Inside, the new remote touch interface with touchpad functionality provides an advanced, user-friendly experience unique to Lexus.

Four photos of the new LF-NX Turbo have been released:

The exterior design changes are minimal, but the powertrain is exciting and should have some wide-ranging applications throughout the lineup.

(Curious that Lexus is choosing to debut a 2.0L turbo in a compact crossover rather than their brand new sports coupe.)
