This is the Lexus UX Concept. You can cry out it the Ucks, because that’s what we’re doing. And oh yeah, it’s in effect weird. The UX is a concept in its truest form, from the whimsical wheel/tire combo to the “inside-out” pattern concept, the latter which reminds of Wonko the Normal from So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.

Designed by Lexus’ studio in southern France, we aren’t unvaried really sure how to describe the design features of the UX. The knife-edged and angular exterior bleeds in and out of equally abnormal cabin seamlessly. But more than the essence’s creases and cuts, it’s the general shape of the UX that’s most fascinating – this is a compact crossover, but it looks more like a jacked-up shooting check than a typical two-box CUV.

The rear doors outwardly bleed into the aggressively raked C-column, while the long hood give the UX a more sporting sort than most cars in this fragment. At the same time, Lexus went out of its way to deemphasize the UX’s modish traits – square, off-road-like annulus arches contrast the strong front fenders that swell out up and above the hood, for example. The fact that designers painted these arches silver to difference with the lovely amethyst paint gives them an flush greater visual weight. Lexus says the blanket idea for the silver accents – the ring arches, mirrors, and roof rails – “stand in for a form of continuous yet interrupted bone framework.” Whatever you say, guys.

But the wheels and tires pose as the strangest visual detail. The 21-inch wheels truly extend into the tires. Lexus says it worn laser carving to cut into the tire sidewalls, and then integrated the to what place spokes into rubber. The visual punch reminds us of those weird airless tires that pop up every few years.

The internal, meanwhile, implements Lexus’ Kinetic Bench Concept for the first time. Believe it or not, the futuristic seats are the most inconsequential part of the cabin. See, UX, in tech circles, is stunted for user experience. With a name like that, we contemplate big changes to the driving experience, and that’s what Lexus delivers – from the swooping, overlapping break that creates a real sense of extent from the driver’s seat to the three-dimensional outcome of the cabin’s three displays, the cabin is a fascinating area. Of all the “deconstructed” styling elements Lexus implemented on the UX, we like the pattern of the dash the most.

It’s unclear what r the UX Concept will have on future Lexus vehicles – the society says it’s a vision of a future compact SUV, but the truth is that there’s way too much design progress here to limit to a single vehicle. It’s a effective certainty the UX will have a major bump on the company’s coming products.
