Lexus LF-NX: Gives New Meaning to Bold Design.

The Lexus LF-NX is set to be revealed at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show, but it has already made waves due to its edgy, futuristic design. Sharp creases and hard, jagged angles, make up the exterior and let the LF-NX stand out from other crossover SUVs. A prominent grill in front is familiar, its hourglass shape gracing the front of all other Lexuses on sale today. Front and rear inlets are reminiscent of those found on the now discontinued LFA, but are barely noticeable among the jungle of lines and edges. Bulging rear fenders and large wheels give the Lexus an aggressive stance unparalleled by any other crossover. The interior is not nearly as violent looking as the exterior, but still has a sporty feel. It most likely has a hybrid power train, though actual performance and mechanical data has yet to be released. It is almost certain that some production version of this car is to built, thanks to the immense popularity of crossover vehicles.

2013 Shanghai Auto Show: Ford Escort Concept

https://i2.wp.com/stwot.motortrend.com/files/2013/04/Ford-Escort-concept-front-view.jpg

The Ford Escort nameplate has been revived after ten years to grace a Ford Concept car. The car looks much like a shrunken Ford Fusion sedan with graceful, soft, lines and Fords new corporate hexagonal grill at the front. Aggressive rear tail lights are pinched in the middle with a subtle rear lip spoiler above. Minimal sharp edges on the body give the Escort a much cleaner appearance than Ford’s own Focus. Under the hood, a four-cylinder powering the front wheels is almost certain. Don’t expect any production variation of the Escort to appear in America, it would compete against the Ford Focus. This car is more than likely for China where it was revealed.
