To go along with today's announcement, Lexus Europe issued a single photo of the car's rear profile. As with recent Lexus vehicles, the UX Concept features a heavily creased, origami-inspired body.
Toyota's luxury brand is saving the interesting details about the vehicle for its full debut in a few weeks time. Lexus says, though, that the UX Concept's "strongly differentiated identity has been designed to appeal to a progressive, urban audience living in a connected environment".
Apparently the UX Concept will also feature "imaginative technologies for an immersive driver experience, while the interior combines traditional craftsmanship with high-tech manufacturing techniques".
The small five-door crossover vehicle is most likely based on the Toyota C-HR, which will go on sale in Australia early next year with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 85kW of power and 185Nm of torque.
In the past, typically, Lexus has branded its concepts as LF-something, even if it was a preview of an upcoming production vehicle. This time around, it's named its Paris debutant as the UX Concept, hinting that a production version is around the corner.
If anyone is hoping for a radically toned down production version, it should be noted that lately Toyota and Lexus have been sticking remarkably close to the concept car template when releasing new vehicles.
