Video: The Lexus Four-Cylinder Turbo Engine in Detail

Lexus Turbo Engine

Here’s a video overview of the new 2.0L turbo engine installed in the Lexus NX 200t:

The NX 200t will be the first model to get the 8AR-FTS 2.0L engine, which is equipped with a twin-scroll turbo and generates 235 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,000 rpm.

The engine can flip between the Atkinson cycle for greater efficiency and the Otto cycle for more power — it’s also the first Lexus to be fitted with an idling-stop system, which reduces fuel consumption by automatically switching off the engine when the vehicle is idling.
