Lexus IS 200t Trademarked

Lexus has trademarked the IS 200t nameplate in both Australia and Europe, making way for the new 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine to be introduced in the sports sedan.

The turbo engine will debut this year with the NX compact crossover, where it generates 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine also features a dual Atkinson/Otto cycle that maximizes fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance.

(The Australia trademark is #1624592, and the European trademark is #012902251. Both were filed on May 23, 2014.)
