There the Toyota luxury division will unveil the production version of its LF-NX Concept, which, unsurprisingly, will be called the NX.
“The LF-NX Concept, presented last year in Frankfurt, showed the Lexus design direction for a mid-size crossover, positioned below our RX,” said Lexus Europe boss Alain Uyttenhoven, speaking in Geneva today. “Today I can confirm that Lexus will reveal this unique crossover in less than 50 days. The world premiere will take place on April 20, at the Beijing Motor Show.”

A product that’s long been missing from the Lexus lineup, the more compact and more affordable NX model will be important to boost sales, particularly in urbanized markets like Europe – where the Lexus brand is still struggling to compete with long-standing German automakers.
Show as both a hybrid concept and a turbocharged model, expect both to be available in production form with the NX200t marking the first use of a turbocharged engine in a Lexus product.
