This Is Lexus New LF-SA Concept
http://www.carscoops.com/2015/02/this-is-lexus-new-lf-sa-subcompact.html
Lexus itself has said the concept reflects its "passion for new design trends and explores unexpected territories for the brand" adding that it was "conceived as a luxurious, driver-focused vehicle, designed to address a future world that is more influenced by technology and virtual experiences".

Little else is known about the study, but it's speculated that it could preview an upcoming, luxury sub-compact model positioned under the CT 200h.

An exploration in design from Lexus, the LF-SA concept is a bold expression of how Lexus will deliver the joy of driving even as automated driving technologies become more prevalent.

The new Lexus LF-SA concept car has made its world debut at the 2015 Geneva motor show.

Last year marked the 25th anniversary of the very first Lexus, the LS400 saloon. To celebrate this milestone, Lexus challenged ED2, its European design studio, to create a concept of an ultra-compact (sub-B-segment) urban 2+2 model.

That feeling was spot on. It's ugly.

It’s been an incredible year for Lexus with the launch of amazing new products like the striking NX crossover and RC F sports coupe. This year in Geneva - alongside the European premieres of the new 477 DIN hp GS F and LF-C2 concept - Lexus unveiled the LF-SA Concept, an ultra-compact urban 2+2 car that explores unexpected territories, in a bold and emotional way.

Lexus International announced today that Sense-Wear of Emanuela Corti and Ivan Parati (Caravan) was selected by an elite judging committee as the first ever Grand Prix winner of the Lexus Design Award1. The selection was made based on the four finalists' presentations of their prototype works on the theme of "Senses". Along with pieces by the other 11 finalists, the Grand Prix work is displayed at "Lexus – A Journey of the Senses", an exhibit experience presented by Lexus at Milan Design Week 20152. This year's Lexus Design Award drew a large number of submissions and a wide variety of wonderfully original ideas. In keeping with the theme of "Senses," many submissions appealed to the five senses or emotional, rather than concrete, aspects of the human experience.

Lexus' striking design has always been a fundamental part of its appeal - it's what sets it apart from other premium marques.

And there's no better way of getting a deeper understanding of how Lexus is designing for the future than by watching the process from start to finish.

In this video, we go behind the scenes at ED², Lexus top secret design studio in the south of France, to show you how to draw a car.

Shahidul Syed Alam, recent graduate of Coventry University's Automotive & Transport Design course and now a Lexus designer, describes the process of designing the LF-SA concept, starting with a hands-on initial sketch using traditional methods - pencils and paper - and then bringing that to life in the virtual world as a digital render.

Lexus' design process begins even before pencil meets paper. "We believe it's important to have something unique in the sense of expression of style," says Shahidul.

Starting with a clean sheet of paper, he fluidly lays out the foundation of the LF-SA, its basic proportions, layout and outline. Key design details like the Lexus spindle grille are incorporated early in the process.

SHAHIDUL'S TOP FIVE TIPS: HOW TO DRAW A CAR

1. Begin by drafting the foundation of the car - the basic layout, wheel placement and perspective
2. Sketch the outline of the car, defining its shape
3. Establish the appearance of key design features such as the grille
4. Add in design details like badges or lights
5. Finish by shading the drawing to establish shadows and highlights
