The Lexus LF-NX, a next-generation luxury compact SUV crossover that made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year, has been outfitted with a newly-developed 2.0-liter turbo engine, guaranteeing superior driving and environmental performance.  A lower center of gravity, emphasized by the front under spoiler, gives the turbo model a sportier look.  The LF-NX cuts a lean profile, with its compact, sharp body and wide stance conveying SUV-unique power and exhilaration.  Inside, the new remote touch interface with touchpad functionality provides a cutting-edge, user-friendly experience unique to Lexus.
