New Lexus RX200t gains turbocharged 4-cylinder motor

Lexus saved the entry-level RX200t for this week’s Shanghai Auto Show, and it uses a version of the 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine first seen in the smaller NX.

The RX200t will be the entry-level model in the Lexus RX range for many markets across the world, except possibly the US.

It’s powered by a 228hp (170kW) version of the 2-litre 4-cylinder engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger. It’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
