Spy Images of the Lexus NX SUV leaked
|   Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Spy images of the all new Lexus NX have come in and judging from the images, the car seems to be in the late production stages. This is great news for people anticipating an early launch for the NX. The Lexus NX is a small Audi Q3 and BMW X1 rivaling SUV Lexus has a lot riding on the successful unveil and launch of the NX.

The Lexus NX is by far one of the most anticipated vehicle launches from the company and the reputation and engineering prowess of Lexus depends on the NX at the moment.
The NX will sit pretty on a segment below the high powered RX and images of the prototype being tested in Germany raises hope of a late 2013, early 2014 reveal. Although the exterior design of the NX may seem similar, mechanically, this is a whole new SUV.

The test mule resembles the exterior of the CT 200h and as a result the car may look old for the moment. Lexus has however not commented on whether the current body structure will be kept or the company plans on designing a separate exterior for the NX. The engine is pretty peppy and this is evident from what the insiders have to say about the NX.

The highly camouflaged exterior is not the point of concern at the moment and experts are more interested at what the NX might be running on. Lexus will be tagging the NX line up with names such as the NX 200t or the NX 300h although nothing can be confirmed before the vehicle is officially showcased. The NX is expected to be powered by a turbo charged 2.0 liter petrol engine, although the number of cylinders or engine displacement is yet to be announced.

A high end 2.5 liter supercharged petrol engine is also on the cards whereas technical specifications for this model have not been revealed either. A hybrid power train is also expected to be available later on although it is not sure whether it will be similar to the one used on the Lexus IS.

The Lexus NX is most likely to feature bigger rims, sports tires, beefed up body as well as massive exterior space. If the Lexus NX needs to tackle the big names in the market, the company needs to make sure that the NX is capable of tackling softy roads and heading off road equally well. The Lexus NX has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the youth and features technology inspired from its German relatives.

Lexus is yet to announce an official date of launch although initial estimates reveal that the NX should be available across showrooms by early 2014. The equipment level and trim on the NX is yet to be disclosed and the company is tight lipped about the situation at the moment. Lexus however promises to endorse a higher level of technology into its products, although this claim is yet to be cross referenced.
