Lexus will take the fight in the premium compact segment straight to the German triumvirate with this cheeky new hatchback.

Although the Japanese luxury carmaker did not say much when it released this single image of its hatchback concept, Lexus said it "promises to raise the bar in the premium compact segment".

Notwithstanding a front end that looks incredibly similar to the Toyota Auris', the concept of the new rival to BMW's 1 Series, Audi's A3 and the Mercedes-Benz pairing of A- and B-Class will be shown at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor show.

Possible engine options are, for now, open to speculation, although petrol engines can be expected to be positioned alongside at least one of the manufacturer's signature hybrid powertrains.
