Lexus reveals its UX Concept at the Paris motor show, a design study that features a wealth of technical and design innovation. While the UX looks to future possibilities, Lexus also showcases more immediate developments in its model range with the new 2017 IS saloon and a new Sport version of the NX luxury crossover. In more detail, the Kinetic Seat Concept rethinks traditional car seat design and how to achieve a more stable and comfortable position at the wheel.

Lexus UX Concept

Revealed for the first time at the Paris motor show, the UX Concept is Lexus’s vision for a compact SUV of the future. Designed at Lexus’s ED2 studio in the South of France, it takes Lexus’s styling philosophy into new areas with an “inside-out” design, while introducing multiple advanced technologies including 3D hologram-like instrumentation, see-through front pillars and e-mirrors in place of conventional door mirrors.

2017 Lexus IS

Building on its established success of one million global sales since launch, Lexus’s IS range continues to evolve with a series of changes introduced for the 2017 model year. The executive sports saloon gains styling enhancements, a more refined interior with improved HMI features and the provision of Lexus Safety System+ features. The chassis has also been revised to further improve the car’s ride and handling dynamics. Read and see more here.

Lexus NX Sport

A new Sport model is set to join the NX range before the end of the year, with grade-specific exterior and interior design features. Read and see more here.

Lexus Kinetic Seat Concept

As announced last week, Lexus has developed a radical new car seat design, the Kinetic Seat Concept. Constructed using a spider’s web-pattern of synthetic protein-derived material, it provides higher levels of support and comfort. Read and see more here.
