The photos may look just like a Lexus CT 200h but the photographer has revealed that it is actually not just a plain one of these. In fact it is a Lexus NC crossover which is smaller than the 200h which will be below the RX in their range of cars. This will be their second CUV vehicle.
The pictures show that the car is higher than a normal CT hybrid hatchback. There are crossover spec tyres as well which is a bit of a giveaway that it is a more robust vehicle.
There were rumours that the names MX 200t and NX 300h were trademarked by Lexus last year which are probably clues as to what the powertrain for the new CUV will be. It will have turbocharged power though with a 2.0 litre turbo charged four cylinder engine. There is very likely to be a hybrid version of the car as well. This is expected to have an electric motor and 2.5 litre four cylinder engine combination the same as in the ES 300h. It is also expected that there will be a naturally aspirated four cylinder too.
It has been rumoured that the NX may be ready to show at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and perhaps this CUV may be alongside it there.
