The Lexus LF-SA concept has been officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, following two unintentional ‘sneak peaks’.

A teaser image and text for the new concept was mistakenly posted on Lexus’ Twitter account in Europe before being removed, and an enthusiast site obtained and published leaked photos last week.

The concept is out in the open now, however, described by Lexus as an “ultra-compact urban 2+2 [which] captures Lexus' passion for upcoming design trends in a bold and emotional execution”.

Oddly perhaps - as the pair shares nothing in common - the LF-SA was designed to commemorate Lexus’ first model in the legendary LS 400 sedan, which celebrated its 25th birthday last year.

The concept measures 3450mm long, 1700mm wide and 1430mm high, and Lexus says its dimensions and styling point to a city car interpretation of the carmaker’s road-going ‘L’ range (LS, LX and LFA).

The styling is also designed to give the viewer a new perspective of the car with each changing angle, while remaining true to the brand with Lexus’ now trademark spindle grille.

Inside, there’s a 2+2 seating layout as mentioned, but the driver’s seat is fixed to maximise space. Instead of sliding seat rails, Lexus has fitted an adjustable steering column and pedals.

For rear seat passengers, the front passenger seat moves in the traditional two-door way to allow access.

Other features include an infotainment system with a hologram-style digital display incorporated in the instrument binnacle, along with a wide-angle Head-Up-Display.

Lexus is keeping quiet on the concept’s powerplant, although one of the carmaker’s hybrid units would be a logical guess.

Reports have suggested Lexus is planning to introduce a new Audi A1-rivalling light car, although the relatively tall ride height of this concept could also hint at more of a compact SUV focus.

Or, like the larger Infiniti Q30, the LF-SA could preview a new model that squeezes into the space between the light car and compact SUV segments.

Stay tuned to TMR for more news from the Geneva Motor Show.
