Lexus Confirms New NX Compact SUV for the Beijing Auto Show

While Lexus is not as predictable in the way its future cars will look as its German rivals are, we did recently catch a glimpse of the upcoming NX crossover and it didn’t look surprising at all. The NX draws heavily upon the show car, though it looks to have lost some of its aggression.

We could be wrong in stating that the car in the link above is the actual production model, because it could very well not be, since Lexus has now officially announced that it will be bringing its brand new NX to the Beijing motor show, where it will be unveiled on April 20.

It won’t be coming to Geneva, then.

The manufacturer confirmed that the NX will sit below the RX in the Lexus range, and we already know that it will benefit from the advantages of turbocharged petrol engines.
