Lexus sets its sights on MINI as it unveils radical new city car

lexus LF-SA 2

LEXUS is looking to give the MINI and Audi A1 a run for their money with the LF-SA concept. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, it marks a signal of intent from the brand, but don’t expect to see it in showrooms anytime soon.

Alain Uyttenhoven, head of Lexus Europe, insisted there won’t be a production-ready version of the LF-SA for at least four years.

The tiny, 2+2 city car is a dramatic preview of how the smallest-ever Lexus could look, and the brand’s European design studio hasn’t held back. However, it was purely intended as a design study, with Lexus continuing to focus on upmarket and luxurious models such as the latest NX SUV, and forthcoming GS F saloon. At 3,400mm long, 1,700mm wide and 1,430mm high, it’s 50mm shorter and 80mm lower than the Toyota Yaris.

In fact, it’s shorter, wider and lower than the VW up!. Inside, a high centre console cocoons the driver, while the interior surfaces are angular yet smooth and uncluttered. The infotainment system includes a hologram-style digital display incorporated in the instrument cluster, plus a wide-angle head-up display also features.

The driver focused cabin design continues with a fixed seat, but movable pedals and steering wheel. The
passenger seat slides back and forth to allow access to the rear.

However, there’s no word yet on what drive train is under the skin. Given Lexus’ expertise with hybrid technology, a petrol electric combination is likely, although a full electric set-up would also suit an urban runaround of this size.
