The 2014 year is marked as the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first Lexus compact car, the LS 400. To commemorate this highlight, Lexus challenged ED2, which is its Europe-based design studio to make a concept of an ultra-compacted, sub-B-division, urban 2+2, compact car the 2015 Lexus LF-SA Concept. This is an illustration of the fervor for future design trends of Lexus that explores unanticipated territories for the product in a bold and emotional implementation.
In an upcoming world that several people see as increasingly impacted by practical experiences and technology, the new Lexus LF-SA compact car is as well, a driver-concentrated vehicle, reproducing the dream of Lexus. However, the real driving experience will continue the ultimate comfort. From that point of view, the 2015 LF-SA Concept mixes a daring understanding of the L-finesse plan values, never losing the vision of the driving delight that will always define theprogressive comfort of Lexus.
2015 Lexus LF-SA concept exterior
The designers of Lexus managed to create the fresh new 2015 Lexus LF-SA concept that carries the external dimension of 3,450 mm in length, 1,700 mm in width and 1,430 mm height, with the solid packaging, pointing to the maneuverability and flexibility essential to a right city car. The vehicle comes with a rugged and confident exterior styling.
The difference between convex and concave bodywork surfaces is highlighted by the powerful undercutting over the wheel arches, especially to the rear, bringing a distinctive proportion to the exterior design and offering it a strong sense of vitality and forward motion. New Lexus LF-SA comes with the spindle grille, whose shape is obviously referenced in the angular, dual-stepped back styling that includes L-shaped lamps in a flying-support design.
Lexus LF-SA 2015 Interior
In spite of the highly-compact exterior measurements of 2015 LF-SA Concept, the vehicle comes with a surprisingly roomy interior. The key to this sensation of roominess is the designers’ treatment of weightlessness, such as the sweeping design of the dashboard reinforces the breadth of the cabin. The 2+2 cabin design of the LF-SA Concept offers a clear priority to the vehicle driver. While the driver’s seat is fixed, the pedals and the steering wheel are adjustable.
On the other hand, the gliding front passenger seat offers access to back seat accommodation. This duality of utility that awards priority to the driver is reinforced by the interior design that uses space, volume and materials to generate two clearly-discernible, partly covering the elliptical regions in the cabin. The infotainment system of the vehicle comes with a hologram-fashion digital display, which is included in the instrument binnacle and a broad-angle Head-Up-exhibit.
The 2015 Lexus LF-SA Concept is expected to be equipped with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. This engine offers the vehicle an impressive power of 235 HP and a torque of 258 lbs per foot.
