17 months after displaying the small premium UX SUV concept at the 2016 Paris Motorshow, Lexus is now ready to present the production version which will have its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6. The model will use the ‘UX’ designation and replicate some of the styling cues seen in the concept model.
The new UX highlights the intention by Lexus to attract an ever-wider group of new, younger, ever-connected urban customers to the brand for the first time.
A powerful reinterpretation of the Lexus design signatures, the 4.4-metre long UX Concept reflected the determination by Lexus for each of its models to have a unique, standalone character with a strong concept behind it. It represented the next step in the company’s design journey and a redefinition of the driving experience.
The innovative exterior design of the UX Concept contrasts the almost brutal appearance and real 4×4 presence of an off-roader with a low ground clearance and coupe-like driving position. The concept SUV was created at ED², the Lexus design centre in southern France.
