The date of the premiere of the new compact crossover Lexus is namedJanuary 27, 2018
The company Lexus has developed a serial version of the crossover UX. According to Motor1, the premiere of the car will be held at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. The novelty will be focused, first of all, on the youth audience. The main competitors of the car will be BMW X1 and Audi Q3.
All the technical characteristics of a compact crossover are kept secret. At the moment, the Japanese registered the indexes UX200, UX250 and UX250h. This suggests that the car will receive a hybrid version and modifications with 2.0 and 2.5-liter engines. In the Lexus lineup, the new product will be a replacement for the CT 200h, which has already been discontinued.
The UX concept was first demonstrated at the Paris Motor Show in September 2016. The European division of Lexus was engaged in the design of the car. The car got swing doors, LED optics and massive rims. The car does not have rear-view mirrors – instead of them the novelty has received special cameras.
Thus, in the future SUV-line Lexus can include up to five models. In addition to the current crossovers NX, RX and GX, it will include a serial version of the concept car Lexus LF-1.
Another closest premiere Lexus will be the “charged” modification of the LC coupe. The machine will be equipped with a supercharger, whose capacity is 630 horsepower. It is assumed that a similar engine will receive a top version of the flagship sedan LS.
