2015 Lexus NX Targets The Booming Compact Crossover Segment
Lexus is jumping into the booming compact crossover segment with a new
model called the NX.
This toned down version of the wild-looking LF-NX concept is significant in
several ways. Not only does it give Toyota’s luxury brand an entry in one
of the hottest-selling sectors of the auto market, but it introduces some
interesting new technology.
The NX – which goes on sale as a 2015 model later this year – will be
the first Lexus to offer a turbocharged
to comply with stringent emissions regulations is crucial.
2015 Lexus NX
The turbocharged version of Lexus’ new
compact crossover is called the NX 200t, and it will get an all-new
2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Lexus says this engine generates 235 horsepower and 258
pound-feet of torque. Other details, such as how many miles per gallon it
will get, have not been released.
The base model of the Lexus NX is called the 200 — no “t” in the
name. It will have a non-turbocharged
four-cylinder engine with less power. A third version called the NX 300h
will have a hybrid powertrain.
In keeping with its strategy to offer more exciting vehicles, Lexus will
offer an F Sport version of the NX 200t. F Sport models feature a tighter
suspension and sportier styling, among other tweaks.
The NX will compete with the Audi Q3, BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque, all of
which already have turbocharged
four-cylinder engines. Another NX competitor, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class,
does not, but is soon to be updated.
The new model from Lexus will be positioned below the only other crossover
in its lineup, the midsize RX.
The 2015 Lexus NX, which made its debut at the auto show in Beijing this
spring, continues a trend of luxury brands expanding into new segments.
Mercedes has a new GLA-Class that slots just below its GLK-Class.
Lincoln is coming out with the MKC, its first compact crossover, and BMW
recently announced plans for the X7, its first full-size SUV.
Bentley and Maserati also have their very first SUVs in the works.
2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 9-Speed Automatic
The 2014 Evoque is very much like the one that scored style points
following its 2012 introduction, including North American Truck of the Year
honors. But there’s one key distinction: The 2012 Evoque apportioned
power to its wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. The ZF
automatic in the 2014 model adds three more cogs, spreading the power with
nine forward gears.
With no change in output from the Evoque’s 2.0-liter turbo four (240 horsepower, 250 lb-ft of
torque), what would you expect from this upgrade? Improved EPA fuel economy
ratings? Check. Improved real-world fuel economy? Hmm. Improved
performance? Not so much.
The Mass Factor
In our March 2013 issue, the six-speed Evoque squared off against an Audi
Q5 2.0T and BMW X3 xDrive28i in a battle of entry-luxury compact SUVs. It
did not prevail against the Teutons, but its acceleration times were
competitive. Oddly, the 2014 Evoque wouldn’t have fared so well.
The nine-speed does give the new Evoque an advantage in the EPA’s testing
cycle, where it’s rated at 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The EPA predicted
20/28 for the 2013 model. However, we logged just 19 mpg with the 2014
Evoque, versus 22 in the comparo. We attribute this disparity to our
thorough exploration of the nine-speed’s operating parameters.
But even as the bottom rung of the Range Rover product ladder, the
Evoque’s high style has a high price tag. The Dynamic Black Edition
package (black-finish skid plates, Range Rover lettering on the hood and
tailgate, Exhaust tips, spoiler
extension, and 20-inch aluminum wheels, plus smoked headlights) adds $3000.
The adaptive cruise control adds $1295; Zanzibar exterior paint (a coppery
color that may or may not occur in Zanzibar), $950; contrasting black roof,
$650; gloss black strata, $350; and Ebony headliner, $275.
But the big hit to the sticker was the $15,200 Dynamic Premium package,
which brought our test vehicle’s total to $63,715. Besides the fancier
heated leather seats with power lumbar and memory, it includes a panoramic
sunroof; navigation; surround vision; a 17-speaker, 825-watt Meridian audio
system; fog lights; a power tailgate; a heated leather steering wheel;
adaptive xenon headlights with power washers; a black grille; side vents;
mirror caps; and aluminum-clad foot pedals.
There’s no question that when it comes to style, the Evoque makes a
strong statement. Its high fashion makes it easier to overlook weak points,
such as the mailbox-slot rear window. But the bottom line
here—$63,715—does raise a question: Just when does the stylistic
cost-benefit ratio get out of whack? That’s between you and your

very high quality and the contrasting color combinations are stunning.

2012 Range Rover Evoque Colorado Mountain off-road review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Range Rover Evoque looks like it belongs
in downtown London. With concept car styling this baby Range Rover is right
at home cruising the street of Peoria or Peking but what about the rutted
and muddy off-road trails of the Colorado Mountains. We recently had the
chance to see just how well this newest Range Rover Evoque drives when the
road turns snowy, muddy and rocky in this Colorado Mountain off-road review
