Lexus surprising and disconcerting, with its latest prototype. ¿Utility crossover? ¿MINI or Juke?

That Lexus intends to surprise us with an urban model , a little brother to the Lexus CT200h, already knew. The advance of this model would be in the Geneva , a prototype as aggressive as exotic, too. Now, the big question is: what strategy to follow Lexus to complete the bottom of its range of models? Did they bet for the urban style premium , in line MINI and Audi A1? Or will they play throwing a small crossover more on the Nissan Juke Renault Captur or online?

This prototype, the Lexus LF-SA, will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

The prototype before us, which have already leaked the first images, leaves open both possibilities. Even for a manufacturer like Lexus, which has accustomed us to see really futuristic prototypes, this design is too exotic and certainly far from the reality of any production model – although I remember that once said the same thing Nissan Qazana and Juke.


Racing MINI and Audi A1 makes sense, but even enter the battle crossovers smaller market.

Its aggressive forms, his steps wide wheel and bulky that appear to be those defenses, invite us to think of the idea of ​​small crossover . But on the other hand, it could well be the result solely of the spectacular seeking these prototypes.

The idea of ​​launching a rival for MINI and Audi A1 is not at all far-fetched . Especially when you consider that in a model with these characteristics, urban vocation, fit perfectly a hybrid as those used by Toyota and Lexus throughout its range motor. In any case, the idea of ​​ crossover probably makes more sense, especially at a time when such models are booming.

Place your bets, ¿utility or mini-crossover? What idea with this prototype aims Lexus?
