2014 SEMA Show: 2015 Lexus NX 200t F Sport by 360 Elite Motorworks

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 6, 2014

The 2015 Lexus NX 200t just got more attractive thanks to 360 Elite Motorworks and visitors from the 2014 SEMA Show were able to see the new vehicle. As you can see from the photos, the crossover arrives with a new Artisan Spirits aero kit consisting of a new front lip spoiler, new front bumper with LED attachment, new side sills, a rear air diffuser, a trunk spoiler as well as front and rear fender flares.

The exterior is highlighted by the Molte Pearl colour by Foreign Auto Body as well as by the HRE P104 forged monoblock wheels painted in gloss black and wrapped in Toyo Proxes T1R Sport tires. Other upgrades include 360 Elite intake and exhaust and new RS-T Sports-i series coilovers.

There are no details regarding the total output delivered by the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, but we do know that the standard version produces 235 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. Power is delivered to the front wheels as standard.

Premium carmaker Lexus is getting ready to shake up the luxury compact segment with the MY2015 Lexus NX. Having acquired the signature Lexus premium styling, the performance-inspired NX is the result of engineering inputs from active racers. The new Lexus NX is confident enough to break through a segment populated by boxy offerings by presenting a dramatic yet dynamic design.

Yes, the MY2015 NX offers the boldest interpretation of the signature Lexus spindle grille and L-finesse design while sitting on a platform engineered by a team that includes active racers. When launched, the 2015 Lexus NX will be available in two versions -- the NX 200t powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; and the NX 300hhybrid.

This means that Lexus now has six hybrid vehicles available to the luxury public – the most among premium brands. Unlike others, the NX 300h hybrid offers a real driving kick, thanks to a new transmission with a kick-down function. As insisted by racers on the engineering team, the vehicle’s hybrid battery was split into two separate pods for better weight distribution, as well as a more efficient use of cabin room.
