This is the Lexus LF-NX crossover concept. The hybrid show car shows the company’s vision for a compact SUV to rival the likes of the Audi Q3 and Range Rover Evoque.

The car features heavily sculpted lines on almost every surface, including on what Lexus calls its β€˜spindle grille’ at the front, which has already been seen on the new Lexus IS saloon.

At the front of the bonnet, ultra-thin LED headlights sit above the familiar arrow-shaped daytime running lights. Huge, vertical air intakes flank the concept’s nose.

In profile and rear-quarter views, the LF-NX is dominated by the flared wheelarches, which both rise towards the back of the car. The roofline also heightens towards the boot, where there’s a sloping tailgate and small lip spoiler.

The cabin has black leather upholstery and contrasting yellow door and dashboard trim. The central transmission tunnel is edged by a thick, brushed metal casing, and the switches, dials and screens are illuminated by blue backlighting.

The Lexus LF-NX will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show on 10 September.
