Car Tech Video: Lexus LF-NX Concept

1:16 /

Lexus flaunts sharp edges on this teaser of a new hybrid compact crossover.

Okay. I think we know what vibe was at Frankfurt 2013. Curvaceous crossovers with long snoots and chopped off rears. See Kia Nero, Infiniti Q30, Mercedes GLA, and this, the Lexus LF-NX, more compact than the RX that basically started the crossover craze. The LF-NX would likely carry a similarly smaller 2.5-liter hybrid. From just about every angle, this thing looks like someone pulled out the kitchen knife drawer too far. Sharp edges thrown everywhere. Inside, the split clear roof is strictly show car stuff. And the chrome streaks down the top of the center console are oddly retro. What is that, '42 Cadillac? But notice, overall, this cabin is not too hard to believe. They seem to have heavily revised that remote touch controller that falls into your right hand, which I'm old for as I've grown less fond of the current one the more I've used it.
