The new trademark of Lexus
At the Beijing show this year, the luxury Japanese brand Lexus presented a new compact crossover NX as a basic car for the future NX 200t, which would be produced specially for the U.S. auto market. According to the carmaker, the new crossover is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The carmaker also plans to use this powertrain in other new Lexus’s models and the next one has to be a new sedan IS.
Soon after, it has been known that the Japanese manufacturer registered a new trademark –IS 200t one week ago. And according to plans of Lexus, the carmaker will produce the turbocharged variant of IS.
Currently we are not ready to say if the turbocharged IS 250 that is presently equipped with the 2.5-liter V6, will get a new 2.0-liter powertrain or just extend the engine range.
Moreover, the auto manufacturer may offer also a hybrid model –the IS 300h, which will be equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit and the electric motor; and the model lineup will get three versions: IS 350, IS 300h and IS 200t.
