It’s not uncommon for companies to purposely or sometimes…inadvertently tease or even fully reveal their future product offerings at industry-related events and presentations.
For example, during the 26th Annual Society of Automotive Analysts’ Automotive Outlook Conference that took place at the Cobo Center this month just before the Detroit Motor Show, Toyota CEO Jim Lentz likely afforded us our first view of the production version of the Lexus LF-NX.
Naturally, the presentation was recorded, and thanks to the crew over at Autoblog.com that found the video from AmericaJR, we can show you the (low-res) screen shot of the car that is believed to carry the NX moniker.
The image suggests that, while keeping the edgy styling feel of the concept, the NX is nowhere near as controversial or radical, with the design continuing the same theme seen on Lexus’ latest rides like the IS sedan and RC Coupe.
In his speech, Lentz confirmed that the NX will be the first production Lexus model to be offered with a force-fed gasoline engine, and in particular, the recently announced 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged mill.
We have heard that Lexus may introduced its new compact crossover at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
