Lexus Nx Confirmed For Australia : Turbo And Hybrid Models Coming, But Affordable Base Model Ruled Out


2014 Beijing Auto Show : 2015 Lexus NX 300hThe new Lexus NX compact SUV has been confirmed for Australia – but the brand won’t be offering a budget-focused base model.


The Lexus NX range will consist of the high-tech 2.5-litre petrol-electric NX300h hybrid model, which will arrive in the fourth quarter of 2014, while the NX200t with its all-new 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder is due here in the first half of 2015.

But the NX200 model, which is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and was set to offer the brand a wallet-friendly base model price, has been ruled out for the Australian market.

Pricing for the new Lexus NX range is expected to start between $50,000 and $60,000.
