With the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2013 just a week away, yet another car has become official this time in the form of the Lexus LF-NX Concept. As the images suggest, the Lexus LF-NX Concept is a compact crossover concept and has been designed to explore the potential for Lexus to put such a car into mass production.
Starting from the visual side of things, the Lexus LF-NX Concept debuts the latest interpretation of Lexus’ evolving design language incorporating the Lexus spindle grille as well as some “extremely expressive” headlights and independent Daytime Running Lights. The Lexus LF-NX Concept then features an aggressive vertical cut helping to separate the front bumper from the front wing.
Such vertical and sharp lines can be found around the rest of the car with it including a steeply raked tailgate as well as four slimline doors and some insanely aggressive and extremely wide rear wheel arches reaching towards the taillights. All these lines are complemented by the Brushed Metal Silver exterior paintjob.
As with most modern concept car interiors, the cockpit of the Lexus LF-NX Concept is extremely futuristic and gives us a glimpse into how SUV interiors could look in the coming years. Most predominantly, it features a selection of screens across the dashboard all of which incorporate touchscreens.
Powering the Lexus LF-NX Concept is a new variation of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system.
