Here it is – the first look at Lexus’ upcoming BMW 1-Series and Audi A3 rival. Lexus has just released this sketch with a tiny press release detailing which hall the concept will make its debut next month at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
“The concept will demonstrate a mix of technical innovation and ground-breaking design that promises to raise the bar in the premium compact segment, ” Lexus said in a statement.
