Following an announcement made at the beginning of the month, Lexus has introduced today the LF-NX Turbo at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan.

The concept is a follow-up to the LF-NX shown at IAA in Frankfurt back in September but now it has been equipped with Lexus' first turbocharged gasoline engine in the form of a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter motor equipped with D-4S and VVT-i combustion technologies.

It has a twin-scroll turbocharger and a cylinder head-integrated exhaust manifold which enables the engine to be clean and frugal, while at the same time bringing a "high level of performance." Output of the engine has not been specified by Lexus says their new motor brings a fast throttle response and "exhilarating performance while demonstrating outstanding fuel efficiency."

Design-wise the Lexus LF-NX Turbo concept has received a smoked chrome trim for the corporate spindle grille and its base now has a narrow, black mesh air intake sitting above a matt chrome-finished chin spoiler. In addition, the vertical front air intakes now have a high-gloss black trim with a black mesh duct finish.

The back of the car shows a new lower bumper design with a full-width diffuser dressed in matt chrome. It also has dual chrome exhausts and new 20-inch alloys wrapped around in 255/45 ZR20 tires. Changes in the cabin are limited to the red illumination for the instruments, switchgear, door panels and roof.
