Lexus LF-NX concept

Lexus has revealed the LF-NX, a new compact crossover concept that could rival the Range Rover Evoque. Pictures and details here

Lexus has revealed pictures of the LF-NX concept car, ahead of the public debut at the Frankfurt motor show next week. The concept car is a mid-size crossover, which could go on to rival the likes of the Range Rover Evoque, Audi Q3 and BMW X3.

The concept is powered by a new version of the Lexus hybrid drive system, which is related to the 2.5-litre petrol engine and electric system in the IS300h, which produces about 200bhp.

Designed to be a striking concept car, the LF-NX features a strong evolution of the current Lexus design language, including that trademark spindle grille. Lexus has tried to give the SUV a coupe like appearance, with plenty of attitude.

Inside the concept, the cabin is what Lexus calls a ‘Human Oriented’ dashboard with upper and lower displays, touch-sensitive electrostatic switches and touchpad Remote Touch Interface design. To give a premium feel, the centre console is sculpted out of aluminium.
