one thing the slideshow shows is how pointless concepts are - let's compare the interior of the concept and production

What's the difference between this and the NX?

it's quite a bit smaller and will presumably be quite a bit less expensive.

Can you blame them? Would you actually want to drive (or ride around in) something that looked like that?

no one to blame it just shows the pointlessness of making and rolling out something that ridiculous.

I just know these will be the mass loaner car of choice for Lexus dealerships once they hit showroom floor. I just hope they're not crappy like when Acura released the RSX because people HATED those.

Interior looks like a sea of hard and cheap plastics.

yeah I agree with you. I can't think of another lexus where the concept was just so ugly, didn't remotely resemble the production car AND looks BETTER than the concept.

Lexus was extremely proud of the results when they turned the LS-LC concept car into
the production 2018 LC500. One particular challenge was to really build the headlights
into the ultra thin front fender. Look at the side view of an LC and the front wheel inner
fender is thisclose to the back off the triple element headlights.

If by quite, you mean $2k-$3k, they you are likely correct... otherwise CT200h was 32k, so I cant image this being same price. Interior is by far the best in class, and hybrid will likely be same price as NX 2.0t... which is why sales in NA will also be quite low, but for us Europeans it hits the right spot since difference in pricing will be between $5k and $10k, due to the taxes, customs, etc, and plus for us, this is "right sized".

Base cars with slight options and no Nav were $32k. Most with Nav were optioned to $37K-$38K. I have a friend who a few years ago special ordered his 2013 CT with every option possible. Came out to $42,xxx

hah, there you go... I would add at least $2k to those prices since UX looks a lot nicer car, as in more expensive inside and out.
