The Lexus NX will be unveiled in Singapore in November. This new model range marks Lexus’ second offering in the luxury SUV segment and provides customers a premium vehicle that looks unique and should pack the performance to match. 2 variants will be made available here- the NX Turbo and the NX Hybrid. Only the Hybrid will be launched in November. It may be a while before the Turbo joins the lineip.
The NX is based on the futuristic design showcased on the LF-NX concept car, and has been built for drivers who are looking for a premium vehicle to complement their urban and active lifestyles. With a dominant road presence and good performance, it provides a sports car-like agility in an SUV. The NX Hybrid is equipped with a 2.5-litre petrol engine with electric power from a high-output motor, while the NX Turbo is powered by a 2-litre turbo direct injection gasoline engine. Do expect an F-SPORT variant of the NX Turbo to be added to the lineup as well.
