Lexus has released the first official image of its new UX compact crossover ahead of its debut early next month.

The UX is Lexus’ new crossover aimed at millennial city dwellers and other customers that don’t need a vehicle as large as the Lexus RX. It features the automaker’s impossible to miss spindle grille, which is flanked by two rather large front air intakes. The side profile is also quite bold with a dramatic character line splitting the car just below the windows.

“These first visuals reveal the UX’s bold and stylish design that blends expressive bodywork with a compact size,” the automaker said in a prepared release. “Its crossover credentials are signalled by its muscular haunches and high beltline, yet underneath the skin there’s an all-new platform that gives the UX exceptional body rigidity and a low center of gravity for exceptional handling.”

Lexus says the interior, which can be briefly seen in the video embedded below, is “highly driver focused” with a “brave design” and “intuitive technology features.” We’re not expecting too many surprises inside, however, with everything from the dash layout to the center console looking typically Lexus in the preview clip.

The Lexus UX will debut during its press conference on March 6th at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Be sure to check back for the full run down on the 2019 Lexus UX following its unveiling.

    Then what's the NX? I thought it was their compact SUV. The profile makes me think this is a pimped-out C-HR. Although they all look alike now.

    That is just nasty. When is Lexus going to wake up and replace that bad grille design once and for all?
