Production Lexus NX Compact Crossover to Debut at Beijing Motor Show

Lexus NX Teaser

During a press conference today in Geneva, new Lexus Europe general manager Alain Uyttenhoven announced the NX production compact crossover will debut at the Beijing Motor Show in April:

The LF-NX Concept, presented last year in Frankfurt, showed the Lexus design direction for a mid-size crossover, positioned below our RX.

Today I can confirm that Lexus will reveal this unique crossover in less than 50 days. The world premiere will take place on April 20, at the Beijing Motor Show. The new car will be called the Lexus NX.

A teaser image was also released (click for a slightly larger version):

The grille and headlights would seem to match up with the NX image leaked last month, though this new image is clearly an F SPORT version of the compact crossover.

The Lexus NX world premiere will take place on April 20 during the Lexus press conference at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.

UPDATE: The image above is the Lexus LF-NX concept, and not a teaser of the production NX.

  1. Nice one Lexus keep them coming new model after new model keeps us excited about the brand's Range expansion program.
  2. This was the big auto show which I was looking for. so it's Beijing ! Looking at the teaser: same lights as for the concept (WOW), no LED daylights to see ? (strange) and it's a hybrid (sorry USA :-)).
    • Maybe they turned them off for the teaser or the FSport doesnt have them (Swoosh LED) because the leaked image at that conference definitely had them.
    • Don't you have copy of that other leaked image ? I am curious about the lights, what are they going to use ? If they are the same as for the concept, it would be something special !
    • This one? I think the teaser is either A) an FSport/Turbo (FSport) or B) The LF-NX concept with the swoosh LEDs turned off. If you look closely at the logo, you can see the blue dots like the logo on the LF-NX. Usually, hybrid logos for Lexus are just a blue inline. But you never know with Lexus; this may be their new hybrid logo!
    • Don't the daylights only turn on when the main low beams are turned off?
    • No, all of the Lexus' so far have the LED strip remain on with the lowbeams are turned on. However they do dim as to not be as bright. I suspect they took them out of the teaser. The lights in this teaser look like the same as the RC but in a more linear fashion.

  7. I've been looking forward to this premier for a long time, but why on earth would Lexus choose Hitler's birthday (April 20th) to release the NX?
