If talk of an IS 200t trademark had you thinking the company’s midsized sedan would be the second model to boast a turbocharged petrol engine, think again.

" class="small img-responsive"/>
That honour goes to the new RX 200t, revealed in Shanghai this week, less than a month since the 350 and 450h models debuted in New York.

Driving the RX 200t is the same 175kW/350Nm 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that powers the smaller NX 200t, the first model to feature the new engine.

It’s good news for buyers hunting in the entry-level end of the new RX range, because the 200t will replace the current ‘270’ model, which is driven by a naturally-aspirated 138kW/252Nm 2.7 litre engine.

"Compared to the current-generation RX 270, you'll notice that a major appeal point of the RX 200t is its ability to deliver seamless and continuous acceleration up to the mid- to high-speed range," RX chief engineer Takayuki Katsuda said today.

A six-speed automatic transmission will be the standard and only shifter on offer with the RX 200t, while the 350 gets a new eight-speed unit.

Full specifications are still to come, but front- and all-wheel-drive configurations are also expected.

The new RX range, including the RX 200t, will hit Australia in 2016. Specific timing is still to be confirmed.

As for that IS 200t, you can follow our coverage right here.
