Turbocharged 2016 Lexus RX200t Unveiled

The Lexus family will get one more turbocharged member: Lexus has announced the all-new 2016 RX200t in the 2015 Shanghai auto show today.


The RX200t will share the same 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine found in the NX200t, output is 235hp and 258 lb-ft. The turbocharged engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
