Lexus planning to launch new small SUV

Lexus is planning to launch a new entry-level crossover by the end of the year, according to Lexus International executive vice president Kazuo Ohara.

In an interview to Drive, Ohara claimed a small crossover for the global market seems like a promising option. He did not give any more details but said the SUV could in be line for a debut around November, in time for the Tokyo Auto Show.

Speculation suggests it could based on the new RAV-4. They recently trademarked the names NX 200t and NX 300h, which could mean the new SUV could be offered with a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, and the other one a 2.5-litre hybrid engine.
