Lexus NX Compact SUV was announced to be introduced at the 2014 Beijing International Autoshow back in March. Back then we didn't see any teaser of the car. However, Lexus corrected this today with the reveal of the first picture of its next vehicle that will enhance its luxury rage of cars. The model will be based on the LF-NX concept that debuted last year. In addition, the brand is promising that the NX will bring about striking design, advanced technologies and will carry the signature spindle grille in an SUV form.

The official premiere will happen at Lexus press-conference on 20th of Apri in the W3 Hall at the China International Exhibition Centre in Beijing. The new SUV will be positioned below the RX in the Lexus product range.

In 2013 we saw the debut of LF-NX Compact Crossover and it looked amazing. So we are currently wondering whether its production version will look much more different. The concept is only 182.7 inches long and has a wheelbase of 106.3-inch.

Its bold exterior boasted distinctive and sculpted styling, and featured the redesigned spindle grille of the brand. The aggressive design of the vehicle was additionally strengthened via the wide front track, three diamond-shaped LED headlamps and independent Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

Another fact that makes us wonder is whether the NX SUV will carry the same full hybrid powertrain as its concept sibling. In particular, the drive system includes a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle gas engine and a powerful electric motor.
