  • Looks like: Lexus stole the plans for the next Ford Edge
  • Defining characteristics: Powerful stance, narrow headlights
  • Ridiculous features: Buttonless cockpit
  • Chance of being mass-produced: This could be the look for the next RX SUV; expect to see some of the styling translate to the real thing

Lexus is using the high visibility of the Tokyo Motor Show to debut the LF-Xh concept. The SUV could be the next RX, which is the brand’s best-selling model in the U.S. Yes, this is a big deal. Of course, besides the hybrid drivetrain, Lexus isn’t revealing much about this concept.

We can tell you that the design language — a fancy term for style — of the LF-Xh falls in line with the company’s other concepts of late. However, we haven’t seen any of those other Lexus concepts yet come to fruition as production cars. But Lexus needs to replace the RX sometime around the end of the decade, so we’d guess this concept is a stab at a replacement. What do you think? Check out the photos below and tell us if this is a step in the right direction for Lexus.
