This is the all-new Lexus NX premium compact crossover SUV. While the Japanese luxury carmaker's designers took the evolutionary look, styling is noticeably cleaner and more refined than the model it replaces.
Two powerplants are available for the NX, a 2.4-liter turbocharged engine which produces 275hp and 430Nm of torque (NX350 F-SPORT) and a hybrid system comprised of an Atkinson-cycle 2.5-liter inline-4 gasoline mill which produces 187hp and 239Nm of torque and electric motors (177hp front, 53hp rear) that boosts total system output to 237hp (NX350h and NX350h Premiere). The 2.4 turbo four is mated to an eight-speed automatic, while the Hybrid variants get a CVT. All Philippine-spec NX variants get AWD as standard.
