Lexus NX 200t Arrives for European Debut in Paris

2015-lexux-nx-200t-paris-3
While we were in New York for the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Lexus debuted the NX 200t at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition so we were not able to see it in person. With our luck, just as we left New York they brought one to the New York show so it wasn’t until here in Paris at the Mondial de l’Automobile 2014 that we ran into the NX to see it in the flesh and it looks every bit as good as it does in pictures.

Here is a recap from our previous coverage of the Lexus NX200t since our thoughts haven’t changed:

The NX will be Lexus’ fourth SUV, and will slot under the RX. In terms of exterior design, it does not deviate too far from the Lexus design language. It basically looks like a smaller RX with the front end elements off of the IS. The signature spindle grill and headlights with split LED daytime running lights are there along with the subtle chrome trims. One big visual difference are the contrasting wheel arches that just doesn’t seem to fit the luxury look of Lexus. Interestingly enough, Subaru opted to remove the contrasting wheel arches off the all-new 2015 Subaru Outback they revealed last week. It does give the NX that wider more aggressive look that may be the key to draw in younger buyers for Lexus though.

Out back, the Lexus NX features a pair of really striking taillights that feature a soft diffused LED look. Compared to the RX, the NX rear hatch runs closer to the edge of the rear bumper eliminating the rubberized cargo loading ledge. Another nice luxury touch are the door handles with integrated LED lights and hidden key barrels.

Inside, Lexus wants to draw attention to the center instrument panel with silver frame surrounds that mimics the spindle design found up front. The seats are mounted close to the floor to not only provide more headroom, but to also provide a more connected feel when driving the NX. That’s right, no need to gangsta lean to look cool in the NX kids!

LF-NX Concept Becomes Production 2015 Lexus NX

While our crew was in New York covering the 2014 New York International Auto Show, on the other side of the globe was another auto show. The Beijing International Automotive Exhibition press days were during the same days as New York and one vehicle that was revealed there was the production version of the LF-NX crossover concept. Lexus ended up bringing the NX to New York as well, but unfortunately we were already at the airport heading back home. The 2015 Lexus NX will be offered in three models: the NX 200t, NX 200 and NX300h. Not only is the NX Lexus’ first entry in the luxury compact crossover market, it will also launch the marque’s first turbo engine. More on that later.
