There’s a time for everything and this evidently is the time for Lexus, in 25 years, to put out their first turbocharged car.

With more sales than the 1 and 6 series and Z4 combined, the outsider may think that this compact ute is a glorified Mini Countryman riding around with BMW’s well-known N20 turbo four or their stonking N55 3 liter 300 horsepower turbo six.

Report: BMW X4 claims a $6K premium over the car on which it is based
