Lexus says its first luxury compact crossover SUV is scheduled to arrive in showrooms during the fourth quarter of 2014.

The 2015 Lexus NX will be on display for the first time at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition on April 20, 2014.

Three versions will be available in the United States, including the NX 200t, which is the first vehicle from Lexus that has a turbocharged engine, and the NX 200t F Sport. Both versions of the NX 200t feature a 2.0-liter gasoline engine. The NX 300h is equipped with a hybrid system that has a 2.5-liter engine.

All three versions of the vehicle will have all-wheel drive as an option.

Lexus didn’t disclose pricing for the NX models when Consumers Digest requested that information. The 2015 Lexus RX 350 midsize luxury SUV starts at $40,795.
