The Lexus LF-NX concept made its debut at the Frankfurt motor show earlier this month, and the company is keen to use the public’s reaction to gauge interest in a possible Range Rover Evoque rival.

The concept features a bold evolution of the company’s L-finesse design language.

The front of the LF-NX is dominated by what Lexus calls the ‘spindle grille’ but, to our eyes, looks increasingly like the face of the Predator alien.

Just as with the Lexus IS, the daytime running lights are separated from the headlights and are reminiscent of the Nike swoosh.

Prominently protruding wheel arches with black edging dominate the side view, while the rear features light clusters split by the tailgate before plunging down the bumper in a sweeping crease that mirrors the large air intakes of the front.

The interior is just as outlandish, with contrasting yellow and black leather upholstery, blue instrument and ambient lighting, and control surfaces split into multiple zones.

Power is supplied by a modified version of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system.  The presence, or otherwise, of a four wheel-drive system hasn’t been decided.
