These latest photos from the UK show the hybrid NX Lexus in an absolutely beautiful light. The complex and emotional creasing of the surfaces is endlessly entertaining to the eye, while the practicality of this mid-size crossover pair belies their base price in the mid-$30,000 ballpark.

It is surprising and welcome to have an F Sport version of the Hybrid. This is definitely a car to worry both the BMW X3 and X5.

The Lexus NX will be in dealerships in just a few months, with a December arrival projected nationwide.

The 2015 Lexus NX200t and NX300h instantly make all other compact crossovers look 1000 years old. This is a seriously new and innovative take on the design of Lexus SUVs – and we love it.

The surfacing is the most-notable point, with interesting creases throughout that make light bounce around inside the door panels and fender flares. It is totally fresh in a way that a mainstream, or even luxury model, has not been in at least a decade.

Overstating things a bit?

Perhaps – but the NX200t is extremely good-looking. This is one car where the F Sport trim really makes sense – helping to eliminate some of the NX300h’s long-nose design (when viewed in profile).

This might actually be an NX300h element in itself; the RX450h has a slightly longer nose than the gasoline-powered version. Dimensions remain TBD from Lexus, as do pricing and arrival dates.

Besides this, however, almost all the juicy info buyers will need is included below.

Quick highlights and recommendations?

The NX200t F Sport would be the one for me, in the new super-bright Lexus white paint color.

Why?

  • — 17-psi of boost gives a massive lump of engine torque throughout the rev band

  • — six-speed sequential automatic is an all-new design for the NX200t, versus a CVT in the hybrid model

Other quick points:

  • — Interiors look outstanding, with new tech features everywhere

  • — Both NX200t and NX300h are avaialble with front-drive or AWD layouts, but only the NX200t runs pure engine power to the back axle. The hybrid uses Lexus’s battery-powered rear diff setup, which is smooth and silent and unobtrusive, but not as helpful in deep snow or muddy areas.

We will circle back pronto with details on when the Lexus NX is arriving in dealerships, and at what price. But we would estimate base pricing of the NX200t and the NX300h to be very similar, at approximately $33,000 each. With options, AWD and the recommended F Sport package for the NX200t, out-the-door pricing is likely to crest $42,000.

In terms of arrival dates, we estimate the first cars will hit consumer dealerships as soon as August of 2014. Very soon, in other words!
