Lexus UX Concept
Lexus, Toyota’s luxury arm, will be debuting a small crossover in the form of the UX Concept at the Paris Motor Show. The
teased image shows a lot of creased lines and sharp angles at the rear that will most likely make it to the production model when it’s launched. However, it’s safe to assume that the large wheels and exaggerated flaring of the fenders are perhaps only saved for the premiere.
