Looking Back at the Lexus LF-Xh Concept

Thought it would be interesting to go back and take a look at the Lexus LF-Xh, the concept crossover that led to the current RX — here’s a great video of it (though I recommend turning down the sound, it’s a bit blown out):

I had forgotten how impressed I was with the interior design, I love that sweeping center console and think the Lexus design team did an excellent job translating it into what we see in the RX.

What I do remember is the surprise that came with the LF-Xh, it really seemed like a radical departure from the second generation RX — and in many ways, the production model took equal parts from the concept and the previous generation:

Lexus LF-Xh
Lexus RX 450h
Lexus RX 350

What an evolution of the RX — I see so many on the roads, it’s easy to forget just how impressive the original crossover really is.
