THE Lexus LBX Morizo RR Concept has made its world debut at the Tokyo Auto Salon, a reinterpretation of its all-new compact crossover as a high-performance model that's focused on driver engagement.
Lexus says the new model adds another dimension to the LBX's convention-breaking character and has been created with direct input from Toyota Motor Corporation Chairman Akio Toyoda - also known as "Morizo".
The LBX Morizo RR Concept is powered by a turbocharged and intercooled in-line three-cylinder engine that delivers a maximum 300bhp driving all four wheels through an electronically controlled system and a direct shift eight-speed automatic transmission.
The concept has been customised with special details incuding Morizo's signature yellow colour which features in the plated moulding of the spindle grille, the brake callipers and the seatbelts.
The Morizo RR concept is based on the new Lexus LBX which will be arriving in the UK soon priced from £29,995.
It will be available in nine trim levels with the line up topping out at £40,545 for an all-wheel-drive version in Takumi Design specification.
