THE NEW LEXUS LF-NX

WORLD PREMIÈRE OF THE NEW LF-NX TURBO VERSION AT TOKYO MOTOR SHOW 2013

THE TURBO VERSION OF THE LF-NX COMPACT CROSSOVER SUV CONCEPT IS DISPLAYED AT THE 43RD TOKYO MOTOR SHOW AT TOKYO BIG SIGHT IN KOTO WARD, TOKYO, FROM NOVEMBER 20 TO DECEMBER 1 2013.

The LF-NX concept which made its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, has been outfitted with a newly-developed 2.0-litre turbo engine, guaranteeing superior driving and environmental performance.

A lower centre of gravity, emphasised by the front under spoiler, gives the turbo model a sportier look and it cuts a lean profile, with its compact, sharp body and bold tires conveying SUV-unique power and an exciting drive.

The new LF-NX Turbo shares the LF-NX HV’s bold, striking and innovative design, but incorporates numerous exterior and interior detail changes to reinforce the performance potential of the new 2.0 litre turbocharged powertrain.

Inside, the new remote touch interface with touchpad functionality provides a cutting-edge, user-friendly experience unique to Lexus.

DESIGN

The new LF-NX Turbo shares the LF-NX HV’s bold, striking and innovative design, but incorporates numerous exterior and interior detail changes to reinforce the performance potential of the new 2.0 litre turbocharged powertrain.

The Lexus spindle grille now features a smoked chrome trim, while the base is underscored by a narrow, black mesh air intake above a sharp, fin-shaped, matt chrome-finished chin spoiler which reinforces the crossover concept’s low centre of gravity and sporting credentials. The vertical front air intakes are trimmed in high-gloss black paint, with a black mesh duct finish.

Both the wheel arches and the lower rocker panel are now finished in a high-gloss black painted trim, and the upper rocker panel moulding is finished in matt chrome. Above the belt line, the glazing surrounds and the door mirror upper surface share the smoked chrome finish of the front grille surround.

POWERTRAIN

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

The 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder unit combines Lexus’ advanced high tumble port, fan spray fuel injection, D-4S and VVT-i combustion technologies with a cylinder head-integrated exhaust manifold and a twin scroll turbocharger with an active wastegate valve.

Through optimisation of the exhaust gas temperature, the cylinder head-integrated exhaust manifold combines a high level of performance with fuel efficiency, clean exhaust emission reliability, while the twin scroll turbocharger operates effectively across the widest possible rev range.

The LF-NX Turbo’s new powerplant targets a fast throttle response and exhilarating performance while demonstrating outstanding fuel efficiency.

DISTINCTLY LEXUS

THE NEW LF-NX TURBO

LF-NX-cutout-960-003

WORLD PREMIÈRE OF THE NEW LF-NX TURBO VERSION AT TOKYO MOTOR SHOW 2013.

A new Lexus mid-sized Crossover concept, the LF-NX, made its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). This concept explores the potential for a mid-sized Crossover within the Lexus model range.

Reinforcing Lexus’ leading position in full hybrid drive technology, the LF-NX concept is powered by a new variant of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system tuned for SUV performance.

With its highly distinctive and powerfully sculpted styling, the LF-NX concept’s exterior design reflects a further evolution of Lexus’ L-finesse design language.

The front is dominated by a strong interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille, extremely expressive signature front lighting with independent Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and unique corner styling which separates the bumper from the front wing with an aggressive vertical cut.

In profile, muscular wheel arches are trimmed with the black protective finish which typifies an urban crossover. Above the pronounced diamond shape of the belt line, a classic Lexus side glazing profile and steeply raked tailgate create the sweeping silhouette of an athletic coupe.

The rear features highly articulated lamp clusters. They are detailed to project downwards to the full depth of the bumper, creating a sharp, aerodynamic trailing edge to the vehicle which mirrors the front wing detailing.

Reinforcing the LF-NX concept’s premium Crossover credentials, the strength and refinement of the interior’s carved metal surfacing is complemented throughout by Sunrise Yellow / Black leather upholstery with contrast stitching, and sophisticated blue instrument lighting.

The Lexus LF-NX concept is finished in a new Brushed Metal Silver exterior colour which gives the striking impression that the bodyshell has been carved from a single billet of solid metal.

The interior mirrors the LF-NX’s highly sculpted exterior with bold, powerful forms creating a driver-focused cockpit within an ergonomically ideal environment.

In a continuation of the ‘Human Oriented’ L-finesse design concept, the cabin features the ideal, upper display zone and lower operation zone dashboard format perfected over successive Lexus generations.

This allows for intuitive interaction with the vehicle’s next generation technology, which includes touch-sensitive electrostatic switches and a new touch pad Remote Touch Interface (RTI) design.
