The all-new Lexus LBX is appearing for the first time in the UK on a month-long tour of city centre locations and prestige visitor attractions.
The compact SUV – the smallest model yet to wear the Lexus badge – will be featured in a static display throughout August, including appearances at the BBC Good Food Live event at Goodwood Racecourse and the Hampton Court Palace Food Festival.
At these locations there will also be the chance for people to experience the all-electric Lexus UX 300e and RZ 450e luxury SUVs alongside a professional driver; at Goodwood, the experience will include a section of the famous Festival of Speed hillclimb.
Other prominent destinations in the itinerary include Birmingham, Belfast and Leeds city centres, Media City in Salford and the Westfield retail centre in West London.
At each venue, Lexus brand ambassadors will be on hand to answer customer questions and take details from those who wish to be kept informed about the model as it approaches its on-sale date. Details of the UK model range, pricing and pre-sales opportunities will be announced shortly.
The LBX (Lexus Breakthrough Crossover) is a compact SUV that is taking Lexus’s brand appeal into new market territory, embracing new, cutting-edge design and technology. It transcends customers’ traditional expectations of what a car in this class can offer, distilling the distinguishing Lexus qualities of luxury craftsmanship and omotenashi hospitality into a smaller package. It’s designed to be accessible and easy to live with and is equipped with a new Lexus hybrid electric powertrain that offers a generous all-electric driving capability.
It also breaks new ground by giving owners a wider range of design executions and specifications to choose from, giving them more freedom to express their individual taste and sense of style.
