lexus launches a compact crossover

Officially this is just a concept, but the Lexus LF-NX is supposed to preview an upcoming competitor to the BMW X1 and Audi Q3. Using the familiar 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain, the LF-NX will be available in FWD or AWD variants, though specific figures like power output have yet to be announced.

    I am a huuuuge fan of Lexus's previous L-finesse and now their new design language. BUT this is honestly a very ugly vehicle. I just can't see any beauty in this design. I almost think it is more of a shock & awe approach that will be significantly toned down on the concept.

    Ahhh, Batman's Boy Wonder's vehicle.

    I didn't know Leepu was working for the Lexus design studio now!

    If you look at the back area above the wheel, the RAV4 underpinnings are a little more clear. This is just a design mess. I don't think we're moving forward here with design, even though this is a concept. Think about what the original RX concept looked like!

      @Lie2me I really hope it doesn't look like this. And consider how that design will age. Any car with an overwrought design never ages well. Springs to mind the later Solara coupe. First generation Tiburon. 05 Impreza hatch.
