Lexus NX 300h
Last modified: 04/22/14
Lexus unveiled the production version of the Lexus NX compact crossover at the 2014 Beijing auto show.

Lexus will offer a choice of a 235 hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four, or a 194 hp, four-cylinder hybrid. The turbo engine is mated to a six-speed automatic.

With a 104.7-inch wheelbase and a 182.3-inch overall length, the NX is slightly smaller than the Acura RDX, and slides between the BMW X1 and X3. The NX is 5.5 inches shorter than the RX. But rear legroom is only 0.4-inch shorter and luggage space surrenders just 0.8 inch from the RX cargo bay

Both the turbocharged and hybrid models will be offered in front- or all-wheel drive. The NX is derived from the Lexus CT platform with some RAV4 underpinnings and goes on sale this fall.
