Lexus Debuts Ultra-Compact 2+2 Concept at Geneva Auto Show
Despite having 26 years in the auto industry, Lexus is not resting on its laurels as successful models roll off the assembly line and into garages all over the world. Today, the all-new Lexus LF-SA concept made its world debut at the 2015 Geneva Motorshow.
Designed by ED2 -the company’s Europe-based design studio, the vehicle is a concept of an ultra-compact, sub-B-segment, urban 2+2 that Lexus says, “explores unexpected territories for the brand in a bold and emotional execution.”
The LF-SA is designed with spirited driving in mind which is made clear to consumers when they see the Stellar silver exterior finish (the brand’s reference to space exploration), the interior inspired by the spectacle of a solar eclipse.
On the exterior, the LF-SA is a series of angles and curves nodding to the manufacturer’s recent trend toward aggressive styling.
Despite being “ultra-compact,” Lexus promises a spacious feeling interior with the focus on the driver. The driver’s seat is fixed, and the steering wheel and pedals are adjustable, bringing the vehicle to the driver, rather than vice versa. The sliding front passenger seat, on the other hand, gives access to rear accommodation.
Safety and technology merge with innovation as the LF-SA features an information system which includes a hologram-style digital display incorporated in the instrument panel and a wide-angle Head-Up-Display.
