Lexus has unveiled today the LF-NX Concept. The new Japanese prototype is previewing an upcoming compact crossover that is targeting the young people.

Reinforcing Lexus’ leading position in full hybrid drive technology, the LF-NX concept is powered by a new variant of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system tuned for SUV performance.

With its highly distinctive and powerfully sculpted styling, the LF-NX concept’s exterior design reflects a further evolution of Lexus’ L-finesse design language.

The front is dominated by a strong interpretation of the Lexus spindle grille, extremely expressive signature front lighting with independent Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and unique corner styling which separates the bumper from the front wing with an aggressive vertical cut.

Under the hood there will be a plug-in hybrid system that works with a 2.5 liter petrol unit and with a "powerful" electric motor. According to Lexus, the concept offers outstanding fuel economy and class-leading CO2 emissions.
