Lexus is set to unveil its latest concept, the Lexus UX Concept, at the 2016 Paris Motor Show later this month.
The concept was penned at Lexus’ European Design Centre, ED2 and is said to take the luxury carmaker’s bold design language to the next level.
Lexus says its strongly differentiated identity is meant to appeal to a progressive, urban audience living in a connected environment. The UX Concept is also created to showcase imaginative technologies for an immersive driver experience, while the interior marries traditional craftsmanship with high-tech manufacturing techniques.
While not officially confirmed, it is likely the Lexus UX will be a preview of the brand’s upcoming small crossover to sit under the Lexus NX and as a rival to the Audi Q2 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
This comes as Lexus’ parent company, Toyota, recently trademarked the UX200, UX250 and UX250h monikers with the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
The refreshed Lexus IS and the brand’s new flagship coupe, the Lexus LC will join the Lexus UX Concept at the Paris Motor Show.
