Following the unveiling of the LF-NX HV compact premium crossover concept at this year’s Frankfurt motor show, a new version – the LF-NX Turbo- is making its world debut today in Tokyo.

Combining spirited performance with fuel efficiency, the new LF-NX Turbo’s 2.0-litre engine paves the way for the introduction of turbocharged petrol powerplants in future Lexus models.

Design

The LF-NX Turbo shares the innovative, striking design of the HV (hybrid) version that was presented earlier this year in Frankfurt, with the addition of numerous detail changes to the exterior and interior that reflect the performance potential of its new 2.0-litre turbo engine.

The revised frontal treatment sees the Lexus spindle grille gain a smoked chrome trim and the addition of a narrow, black mesh lower air intake above a matt chrome chin spoiler. The effect is to reinforce the crossover’s lower centre of gravity and sportier performance.

The wheel arches and lower rocker panel have a high-gloss black paint finish and the upper rocker panel moulding is finished in matt chrome. The smoked chrome effect of the grille is repeated in the glazing surrounds and the upper surface of the door mirrors.

At the rear, a new lower bumper design is underscored by a full-width aerodynamic diffuser with a matt chrome finish. This is flanked by highly sculpted chrome exhausts, shaped to echo the styling the of the vertical air intakes in the front wings.

The concept gains a stronger alloy wheel design and a change in tyre size, replacing the HV’s 255/50R20 rubber with 255/45ZR20, giving the vehicle a more sporting appearance with a wide, confident stance.

In the cabin the performance potential is expressed in the red illumination for principal controls, meters, navigation screen and Remote Touch Interface, touch tracer and touchpad controls.

Powertrain

The LF-NX Turbo concept is equipped with Lexus’s first turbocharged petrol engine.

The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit features Lexus’s advanced high-tumble port, fan spray fuel injection, D-4S and VVT-i combustion technologies. Its design sees the exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head, and it is fitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger with an active wastegate valve.

By optimising the exhaust gas temperature, the exhaust manifold delivers high performance, fuel efficiency and low exhaust emissions, while the turbo operates effectively across the widest possible rev range.

The unit is engineered for fast throttle response, yet demonstrates excellent fuel economy.
