Lexus is set to unveil its updated Lexus NX luxury compact crossover, and the Japanese automaker announced today that the unveiling would happen in a few weeks at the Shanghai Motor Show (Auto Shanghai 2017) which gets underway with the media days on April 19th. Lexus unveiled a single image of the new Lexus NX, showcasing a new headlight with three individual LEDs, but we have yet to see the final version.

Little information is available on new Lexus NX

As is the norm when an automaker first announces the arrival of an updated or refreshed model, Lexus did not provide much information about the upcoming Lexus NX. The Japanese manufacturer did however say that the new NX would offer more convenience and functionality as well as an updated exterior design.

Introduced a few years ago, the current 2017 Lexus NX is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle turbocharged engine that develops 235 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is not only powerful, but it also enables the NX to reach 100 km/h in just 7.2 seconds while averaging less than 10.0 liters per 100 kilometers in combined fuel economy.

Knowing full well that buyers in the entry-level luxury subcompact segment are concerned about fuel efficiency, Lexus also introduced a hybrid Lexus NX model a short time after the gas-powered Lexus NX launched.

The 2017 Lexus NX Hybrid features 2.5-liter, four-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine which is paired to an electric motor for an average fuel economy rating of just 7.1 liters per 100 kilometers in the city. The NX Hybrid’s total power output is 194 horsepower, and power is sent to all four wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission.

It is unclear at the moment which of these engines, if any, will be offered on the updated Lexus NX set to launch at Auto Shanghai 2017. Stay tuned to our news section to find out more!
