Lexus announced twins at the Beijing Motor Show this week introducing the its first twin scroll turbo charger to its powertrain line-up — starting with the all-new NX crossover.

The new crossover SUV gets the brand’s first gasoline turbo engine in the NX 200t model, which balances fuel economy with responsive acceleration and agility. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbo direct injection gasoline engine, which is matched to a six-speed automatic transmission specially tuned for the NX. And, also has a Lexus-first combination of water-cooled cylinder head integrated exhaust manifold and twin scroll turbo charger.

The 200t will also be available in an F Sport edition, which features an aggressive design — including a mesh grille insert, a bold front bumper, machined-finish wheels, black exterior mirrors, interior ornamentation, paddle shifters, and sport seats.

The 2015 Lexus NX will go on sale later this year, hitting u.S. showrooms in the fall.
