Lexus NX Small Crossover Confirmed by Spy Photos

Rumblings of a sub-RX crossover from Lexus have been circulating for years and spy photos taken today seem to confirm the car’s development progress.

Heavily camouflaged, it’s difficult to tell exactly what the car is. The body profile looks like a CT 200h, but it sits higher than the small hybrid and is riding on higher profile tires, both of which suggest this is something different. Lexus is expected to unveil the car by the end of the year. It will arrive first as a concept during the Tokyo Motor Show with the production version to follow shortly after.

Rumored to be based on the RAV4 platform, Lexus is said to be using a hybrid drivetrain similar to the ES300h. That will mean a 2.5-liter four cylinder that will likely offer about 200 hp in tandem with the electric motor. There is also a 2.0-liter turbocharged version rumored for a more upmarket version of the vehicle.

    This is confusing. LeftLaneNews posted spy shots last year with a test mule riding alongside an Evoque and Audi Q5. The test mule looked a little smaller than a RAV4 but bigger than the CT test mule. Is the next NX based on the the RAV4 or CT? Big difference in interior space. For me, big mistake if Lexus bases it on the much too small CT.
