UX Concept Is Lexus’ Vision For A Luxury Small SUV

Following its world premiere in Paris last fall, Lexus’ new UX Concept crossed the Atlantic to visit the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, where it breathes the same air as the all-new LS sedan, and the LC performance coupe,

The Lexus UX is believed to convey the brand’s vision for a smaller SUV, though, don’t expect to see those rear-hinged doors at the back on a production model. The sharp-angled prototype was created by the firm’s ED2 design center in Southern France with the goal of appealing to young urbanites all over the world.

While no details were offered, the UX is likely based on the Toyota C-HR that utilizes the new Prius TNGA modular platform. The carmaker recently filed to trademark the UX200, UX250 and UX250h names with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, which suggests the use of a 2.0-liter turbo, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a hybrid gasoline-electric unit.

    Lexus needs to clean everyone out of their design department. Just start over.

    Well Lexus is certainly out of fucks to give in the design department.

    Dislikes: Side view has major issues for me. Wheel arches and flares are stupid. Hood length is like a Ferrari 612. Too much. Kill some of the razor sharp angles too. Some not all though. Add some gentler lines to it.

    Likes: The rear view works. I like it. I can see a version of it in production. Although the predator grill campaign is questionable, this particular rendition is a nice evolution of it. Headlights are decent too. Greenhouse shape may work in production too.

    I’m one of the few people that actually quite likes the current Lexus design language. I think the NX and RX are pretty tasty and would drive either quite happily. The side profile on this thing is probably the worst I’ve ever seen though. Truly horrible. Don’t mind the rest of it but the side profile is hideous.

    Please don’t you ever enter production…
