Quick Peek: Lexus reveals new UX Crossover Concept

If I had to hazard a guess, the new Lexus UX Crossover Concept seems hewn from the same stuff as the Toyota C-HR (nee Scion) Sport Crossover Concept (link below) that is supposed to reach production very soon. This would be Lexus' take on the sport crossover market that includes the Nissan Juke and others. With the Lexus version, expect higher-quality materials and higher prices. So far it looks good. We shall see in a few weeks when the concept is revealed at the Paris Motor Show (link after the jump). More to come...
