Lexus is stepping beyond any boundaries and is bravely moving forward like no other crossover until this very day. The new Lexus NX 200t F Sport will be the first lucky one to be equipped with the automaker‘s new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which will allow the vehicle to overcome all kinds of urban challenges that stay between the car and its final destination.
Developed in-house, the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine with direct injection pushes out 235 HP (175 kW) between 4,800 and 5,600 rpm, with a maximum torque of 350 Nm delivered at 1,650 rpm. Official combined cycle figures for CO2 emissions and fuel consumption are 183 g/km and 35.8 mpg respectively. The 1,998cc unit is bolted to a brand-new six-speed automatic transmission with a Drive Mode Select system. Cornering stability and traction are maximized thanks to the Dynamic Torque Control all-wheel drive system. All of a sudden, it's got all the drama u need in a car of this type!
The NX 200t F Sport's exterior puts emphasis on the sporty nature of the crossover due to its well-crafted edgy lines of the body. The large spindle grille with a mesh pattern includes the explicit Lexus F-motif, and a deeper bumper with a metallic-coated lower section. Also, the door mirrors with a black finish and the F Sport 18-inch, 10-spoke alloys which have a two-tone black and machined silver finish contribute to the powerful stance of the new NX. In addition to this, the wheels are shod with 225/60R18 tires. The refined headlights with LED high and low beam functions add a final tone to the Lexus‘ new model.
There are eight different color options, including new Sonic White, plus Sonic Titanium, Mercury Grey, Satin Silver, Celestial Black, Mesa Red, Ultra Blue and Velvet Black.
In terms of the interior, the 200t F Sport features heated electric leather front seats with lumbar support, standard-fit leather upholstery available in black or Dark Rose exclusively. Non-slip aluminium sports pedals, driver's foot brace, and F-Sport steering wheel wrapped in grippy perforated leather provide with a stylish and luxurious sentiment.
2015 Lexus NX 200t costs £38,095 on the road with first customer deliveries beginning in March.
