Lexus LF-SA concept is ultra-compact 2+2 model with a striking design [videos]

There is one model that Lexus is missing, a sub B-segment model. German luxury car makers all have their smaller models. Some of them very small like the smart fortwo.

Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the very first Lexus, the LS400 saloon and to celebrate this milestone, Lexus challenged ED2, its European design studio, to create a concept of an ultra-compact (sub-B-segment) urban 2+2 model.

This is the result, the LF-SA (Lexus Future Small Adventurer) Concept, that is easily recognisable as Lexus, but only 3400mm long, 1700mm wide and 1430mm tall, making it a true city car.

Some of the most notable design elements include an oversized spindle front grille, prominent wheel arches and L-shaped taillights.

The 2+2 interior cabin features a slide-adjustable front passenger seat, offering an easier entry on the rear seats. There is also a high-tech infotainment system with a hologram-styled digital display built into the instrument binnacle and equipped with a head-up display.

No engine details were released what could conceptually power this future car. Currently there are no details about a possible production model, though it would be great to see a toned down version on the road. It is a quite unique take on a small city car.
