Lexus prices 2015 NX

Lexus has priced its smallest SUV offering.

Lexus has announced pricing for its all-new NX compact crossover. The NX is expected to begin arriving in Lexus showrooms over the next few weeks.

Pricing for the entry-level Lexus NX 200t model will start from $34,480. Adding the traction of all-wheel drive bumps the NX 200t's price point to $35,880.

Both NX 200t models are powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder cranking out 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Both front- and all-wheel drive NX 200t models make use of Lexus's six-speed automatic transmission.

The front-wheel drive NX 200t is rated 22/28mpg city/highway while the optional all-wheel drive system dings the SUV's mileage by 1mpg in the city.

The Lexus NX 300h, which uses a more efficient hybrid drivetrain, will carry a base MSRP of $39,720. It, too, can be had with all-wheel drive for $41,310.

The NX 300h mates a 2.5L four-cylinder engine with an electric motor to provide a combined 194 horsepower. The front-wheel drive model can achieve 35mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway while the AWD model checks in at 33/30.

Lexus will eventually offer an NX 200t F Sport model, which ups the ante with a performance-tuned suspension, quicker steering and paddle shifters, but pricing for that model has not been announced.

All price exclude a mandatory $925 destination charge.
