Lexus could use the Geneva Motor Show to introduce an entry-level crossover to slot beneath the NX.
Nothing is official but Car Magazine suggests the model could be unveiled in March and take inspiration from the UX concept which originally debuted at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
Little is known about the model but Lexus International executive vice president Yoshihiro Sawa has previously confirmed plans for a production version of the UX. At the time, he said the model is “not so far away” and would play a big role in attracting younger customers to the brand.
Lexus’ North American group vice president and general manager, Jeff Bracken, has also stated “Our dealers are all over us to produce that concept vehicle.” He added, “It’s something that our consumers are looking for.”
Little is known about the production model but the company has already trademarked the UX 200, UX 250, and UX 250h monikers in the United States. There’s no word on specifications but the crossover would likely be offered with four-cylinder engines including a hybrid option.
The concept measured 173.2 inches long, 74.8 inches wide, and 59.8 inches tall with a wheelbase that spanned 103.9 inches. If the production model has similar dimensions, it would be slightly smaller than the Mercedes GLA but larger than the Audi Q3.
