A new turbocharged version of the Lexus LF-NX concept car has been shown on the eve of the Tokyo motor show.
New Lexus LF-NX turbo SUV concept unveiled
The concept was first seen at the Frankfurt motor show earlier this year. The original design was built to gauge reaction to an avant-garde SUV from Lexus to take on the Range Rover Evoque. The concept was powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine producing 156bhp, plus a small-capacity electric motor.
This new version features a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, although Lexus has yet to confirm power output.
In terms of styling or interior design the refreshed LF-NX concept seems unchanged from the original. That means the exterior is still a sounding board for several hallmark Lexus features, including the large spindle grille at the front and elements of Lexus's L-Finesse design language.
The same cabin from the original also features, with a fingertip touchpad reminiscent of the one used in high-end Audi models to control infotainment systems.
