Lexus LF-SA Concept Looks Ready To Eat MINIs and Audi A1s in Geneva

Lexus know their aggressive styling very well and don’t waste a moment thinking whether they should use it on a sub-compact model, even if at this stage we’re only talking about a concept. That’s how the LF-SA concept got its badass looks for the 2015 Geneva Motor Show debut.

So here we are, looking at a 2+2 study that aims at a possible small production vehicle, although certainly not wearing the same sharpened design lines and super-mean mask. If you remember L-finesse, then you should know that the LF-SA prototype is all about that. By the way, LF-SA stands for Lexus Future Small Adventurer, which makes us even less patient to see the production version.

LF-SA was brought to life at the Toyota Europe Design Development studio in Nice, France, but that fades away once you get to see how the body casts different shadows depending on the viewing angle and how that spindle grille is sending out a clear message to competitors.

The concept is 3,450 mm (135.8 in) long, 1,700 mm (67 in) wide and 1,430 mm (56.2 in) tall but the interior looks a lot more spacious than it really is, even though the driver is the center of attention and the cabin has been designed to wrap around the one behind the steering wheel.

There’s also a crystalline instrument panel with hologram display plus a HUD and a touch pad integrated in the center console. Lexus insists that the car features automated technologies but doesn’t say a thing about the powertrain, so we’ll let our imagination work on that.
