The eagerly awaited Lexus BX, a sleek and stylish compact SUV, is rumored to share its platform with the beloved Toyota Yaris Cross. Get ready for a global reveal in 2023 that’s sure to turn heads.
The mystery of the new Lexus model continues to captivate automotive enthusiasts. Though the name remains unconfirmed, whispers of “BX” have been circulating. But, the company’s trademark of “LBX” in 2020 only adds to the speculation.
However, one thing we can be certain of is the stylish design. The teaser image hinted at a stunning new model that embodies Lexus’s signature aesthetic, seamlessly blending in with sleek models like the NX, RX, and the revolutionary electric RZ. The wait for this highly anticipated vehicle is almost over, and we can’t wait to see what Lexus has in store.
Theo Throttle, our daring designer, was given the challenge of envisioning the future of the ‘BX’ in its final production form. He carefully studied the preview, taking note of every detail and using his imagination to fill in the gaps.
With a keen eye for detail and a passion for innovation, Theo worked tirelessly to bring his vision to life. He took inspiration from current Lexus models, using them as a guide to creating a masterpiece of engineering and design.
The end result is a stunningly accurate depiction of what we can expect from the ‘BX’ in the near future. Theo’s imagination has brought the car to life, showcasing the evolution of Lexus’ iconic ‘spindle’ grille. The teaser image reveals a more sophisticated and subtle take on the design, with the upper trim separated from the main grille in the front bumper.
This is only the beginning of Theo’s journey, as he continues to push the limits of creativity and innovation in the automotive world. The ‘BX’ is set to be a masterpiece of engineering, a true testament to Theo Throttle’s talent and dedication.
At the back, Theo drew inspiration from sleek and stylish Lexus models, incorporating the iconic hooked tail lights, a stunning lightbar that stretches across the rear, and slender brake cooling ducts that grace the corners of the bumper. It’s a safe bet that the BX will stay true to these stunning design elements.
May 4, 2022: Launch schedule looking good
The 2023 Lexus BX is making its grand entrance, defying industry obstacles and defying the odds. As the successor to the retiring CT200h, the BX is slated to break cover next year, according to the Japanese publication Magazine X.
The BX is poised to be a game-changer, not just for the Lexus lineup but for the entire automotive industry. It is rumored to be the first Lexus to ditch the iconic, yet polarizing, oversized grille, opting instead for a sleek, full-width LED light and a more refined “bowtie” look.
With the CT200h bowing out in October, the curtain could rise on the 2023 Lexus BX as early as the latter half of 2022, making it one of the most highly anticipated debuts in recent memory. Stay tuned as the story unfolds.
November 19, 2021: Lexus BX looks to be going ahead
The long-awaited 2023 Lexus BX is finally on the horizon, with whispers of its existence dating back to 2012. The buzz surrounding the newest addition to the Lexus family has been palpable, with speculation about the baby SUV’s potential features and design.
Rumors are now flying about its potential relationship to the Toyota Yaris Cross or the Toyota Aygo X. According to Best Car, the BX will be more closely related to the Aygo X, with the new vehicle designed to sit snugly under the UX small SUV in the Lexus lineup.
With both the Aygo X and the Yaris Cross sharing the same TNGA-B platform, Lexus can borrow much of the Aygo X’s interior and exterior design, tailored specifically for the European market, without having to make heavy revisions for other markets. The Lexus BX promises to be the epitome of luxury, sophistication, and European flair, all in a compact, easy-to-maneuver package. Get ready, the Lexus BX is coming to take the world by storm.
By keeping the number of changes to a minimum, Best Car aims to keep development costs low while still presenting the Lexus as a high-end alternative to the Yaris Cross. Instead of using the Aygo’s 1.0-liter non-turbo three-cylinder petrol engine found in Europe, the Lexus will incorporate the cutting-edge hybrid 1.5-liter non-turbo three-cylinder powertrain from the Yaris Cross Hybrid, harnessing the power of a 59kW electric motor to boost performance.
The buzz is building for the new little SUV set to hit the streets, and it’s said to take inspiration from the 2015 Lexus LF-SA concept. The intriguing part is that the silhouette of this new vehicle mirrors that of the Aygo X Prologue, a concept car that paved the way for its production counterpart.
However, with the Aygo X being minuscule in size – measuring a mere 240mm shorter than a Yaris hatch – the Lexus may only be a hit in Japan. This country has a rich history of micro-city cars and a premium vehicle is more easily accepted there, where luxury is not always tied to size.
The world will have to wait and see if Lexus decides to launch its luxurious mini SUV in Europe or Australia. The unveiling is rumored for the latter half of 2022, so until then, it remains a mystery.
