Lexus has released a whole batch of exterior and interior photos of the LF-Ch concept that debuts next week in Frankfurt. The C-segment five-door hatchback seems a likely candidate for production in the next couple of years, but the car gets a very aggressive looking nose that will almost certainly get a major toning down before it hits the streets. Before that happens, though, we’ll get to see the car on American soil in December when it debuts at the first big U.S. show of the season in Los Angeles.
The LF-Ch is expected to use the same 2.4-liter hybrid drivetrain that’s in the new HS250h. With its aggressive styling and the more powerful drivetrain of the bigger HS, this could prove to be a more performance-oriented hybrid from Lexus. In fact, this could prove to be a very interesting competitor to Audi’s new A3 TDI if it does materialize.
