Why the Lexus LF-NX Turbo Concept Matters:
Put simply, this wild LF-NX Turbo concept vehicle, shown to North American audiences for the first time at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, is a disguised look at the new 2015 Lexus NX crossover SUV, a compact 5-passenger model that will slot into the automaker’s lineup beneath the existing, and quite popular, Lexus RX.
That means the new Lexus NX will be less expensive, more fuel efficient, and likely a big sales hit for the brand. It also means that the next-generation RX is likely to grow in size, finally adding the three-row crossover SUV that Lexus currently lacks.
Of course, these are educated guesses, as Lexus hasn’t officially announced anything of the sort. What we do know is that Lexus has trademarked the names “NX 200t” and “NX 300h,” and we won’t have long to wait for additional details, because the production version of this new Lexus crossover SUV is slated to debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
