Lexus UX Crossover Could Debut In Geneva

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.

        Oo thanks for pointing it out.

  • A More Realistic Concept?

    The rear seats and doors are a joke. Why even bother. Looks to be built on the Toyota C-HR, but sporting a premium unnecessary price. Can you hear me now, Bracken?

  • seriously

    This wouldnt be a bad idea if it were a performance suv with its styling but it will be another CHR an overstyled sporty looking hatchback thing with performance that doesnt match its looks…smh its like a pseudo luxury Juke

      Performance vehicles in general do not sell well. Come out of your rock. I’m pretty sure this one will have hard time staying on the lots.

      • seriously

        ….as many luxury performance (you mean high performance by the way) SUVs that are on the market and coming on to the market “clearly” there is a market for them and auto makers see that…..why dont you get your head out of your hole you have stuck in and see reality…not to mention all the high performance vehicles on the market and planning to be added or sport line trims of existing models. Its one thing to be a blog troll with no life its another to be a babbling idiot with no grasp on facts or reality…..seriously…

    The grille is still stupid and amateurish. But aside from that, looks okay.

    Another grossly over-styled design from Japan. Shocking.
