Lexus to Launch a Compact SUV Based on the Toyota Yaris

Despite the fact that Lexus’ line-up is quite diverse, it includes only luxury cars.

In order to attract new customers, Toyota, the parent company, decides to supplement the premium model range with a compact SUV that will be positioned below the Lexus UX.

The new SUV will be called the Lexus BX. This name is completely unusual for the brand’s models because Lexus uses alphanumeric combinations from the very beginning. There is also no indication that the company intends to change the branding scheme. This suggests that this name will be given to the concept and it can be supplemented with a numeral index later.

The patent for this model was filed simultaneously in the EU, Israel, Iceland and Switzerland. We can assume that the model will be completely European and focused on the same market.

The compact SUV may be based on the Toyota Yaris Cross. By the way, Toyota has recently filed an application for registration of the trademark 'Lexus RZ 450e’, under which an electric SUV may be released.
