Lexus is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its first model, the 1989 LS400 sedan, with a radical urban concept and unveiled it at the 2015 Geneva auto show. It's called the LF-SA Concept.

The car was designed at parent company Toyota's Europe design studio in Nice, France, as a daring 2+2 interpretation of Lexus’ L-finesse design philosophy and could eventually see the inside of a showroom as a Lexus small car.   

Its moniker stands for Lexus Future Small Adventurer and small it is: 3.4m long, 1.7m wide and 1.4m tall.

‘TIME IN DESIGN’ STYLING

It has prominent wheel arches, the automaker’s signature "spindle" grille and L-shaped headlights. Lexus calls its concept’s design "a Time in Design styling approach, in which perceptions of the vehicle change when it is viewed from various angles".

The cabin has a crystalline instrument panel with a black hologram display and a head-up display accessed through a touch pad on the centre console.

The driver’s seat is fixed but the steering-wheel and pedals are adjustable. The front passenger seat is slide-adjustable to allow access to the rear of the car
