Report: Lexus potentially preparing sub-compact crossover below NX

Britain’s AutoCar recently heard through the grapevine that Lexus could be preparing a new entry-level crossover below the all-new 2015 NX.

After speaking with Lexus’ European vice-president, Alain Uyttenhoven, word is that such a model isn’t “impossible” and is a sensible consideration, amid the high demand for more crossovers, especially in China, Europe, and Japan. There, smaller premium cars are a hot commodity and filling another niche gap, similarly to the Germans, would help with sales goals.

There was also mention of an updated LS that could see four-cylinder power in the near future, but Uyttenhoven also mentioned the high priority of fuel-cells in Lexus’s future as well with goals set for the end of this decade in terms of progress.
