Lexus has quietly announced the 2015 NX 200t will be priced from $34,480 in the United States.
Set to go on sale later this fall, the entry-level crossover features a love or hate it design and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The cabin is less controversial and comes nicely equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, NuLuxe upholstery and an infotainment system with a seven-inch display. The model also boasts power front seats, power windows / locks and a variety of other equipment.
Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops 235 bhp (175 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive costs an additional $1,400.
The eco-friendly NX 300h carries a hefty premium as it starts at $39,720 for front-wheel drive variants and $41,310 for all-wheel drive models. That's a nice chunk of change but the crossover has a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine and an electric motor that produce a combined maximum output of 194 bhp (145 kW).
Note: Prices exclude a $925 destination and handling fee
