Lexus NX SUV revealed

The Lexus NX has been revealed ahead of its Beijing motor show launch next week. Details and pictures here.

Lexus has revealed the production-ready version of its compact SUV NX – previously revealed in LF-NX concept form at the Frankfurt motor show in 2013. The new model will compete against the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 in the medium-sized SUV market.

The styling has been somewhat toned down since the concept was unveiled, although many of the hallmark features – including that Spindle Grille – have remained. Standard models sit on 17-inch alloy wheels, while the sportier F-Sport models getting 18-inch aversions.
