Lexus announced that it will stop producing the brand's smallest model "CT" in October 2022.
In this way, Lexus' cheapest entry-level model will become a small Crossover "UX" that adopts the same GA-C platform as the Corolla. Judging from the trademark applied for in Europe, Lexus should launch a Crossover SUV that is even smaller than the UX.
It applied for a trademark in Europe as "LBX". It is guessed that this car name represents "Lexus B-segment crossover". If it is really launched, "BX" should be smaller than UX and it will be positioned as a new entry-level model of Lexus.
On December 14, 2021, Toyota will hold a "Explanation Session on Battery Electric Vehicles" to release battery electric vehicles that will be launched by Lexus in the future.
The picture of Lexus products released in the briefing is based on six vehicles in the background, and seven battery electric vehicles in front. Among the 6 cars in the background, the third to fifth cars from the right can be identified according to the outline, and they are the new generation RX, the new generation NX, and the new generation UX in sequence.
The model on the far left is a Crossover SUV smaller than the new-generation UX, and it is very likely that it will become the entry-level model of Lexus in the future. The BX that may be launched in the future may even be the name of the Crossover SUV.
If the BX is unveiled as a B-segment Crossover SUV, the chassis platform is likely to use the same TNGA "GA-B" as the Yaris Cross.
The UX uses the GA-C chassis platform, which is 4.5 meters long and more than 1.8 meters wide. Referring to the size of the Yaris Cross, the BX should be 4.2 meters long and less than 1.8 meters wide.
The power system uses the same 1.5L inline 3-cylinder engine as the Yaris Cross. Gasoline engine and gasoline-electric hybrid models should be launched, but it is also possible to launch a pure electric model using the GA-B chassis platform like the UX pure electric model "UX300e".
Taking UX as an example for reference, the car names of BX should be "BX150", "BX200h", and "BX250e".
Overseas media also released the expected CG images of the crossover SUV Lexus entry-level model BX, which is smaller than the UX.
The shape of the water tank guard is closer to RX than UX and NX, emphasizing the "spindle body" design, and it can be imagined that it will become an entry-level model with Lexus brand characteristics.
