Lexus continued the tradition of really dramatic looking concepts at the Paris Motor Show by revealing in full the UX Concept, a compact crossover study that likely previews a future Audi Q2 rival.
Penned by the company’s ED2 design center in the South of France, the UX Concept is previewing the new direction Lexus is about to follow with its future models.
The really sharp appearance wants to combine the presence of a tough off-roader with the usability of a crossover, employing sculptural surfacing with the brand’s now-traditional huge spindle grille. Lexus calls it the ‘Inside-Out’ design approach, which offers a strong synergy between the exterior and the interior of the car.
The company opted for a four-seat setup in the cabin which is divided into two distinct sections: the front part of the interior represents a sporty, driver-focused atmosphere while the rear is the comfort zone, employing a ‘welcoming, soft-lounge sofa’ which wraps around into the rear suicide doors.
