Lexus Planning BX Compact Crossover?

Autohome in China is reporting that Lexus will release a compact crossover based on the freshly announced Toyota Yaris Cross, giving it the BX nameplate.

Google Translate is imperfect, but it appears this smaller-than-UX crossover could be released in 2023. It’s likely this model would only be offered in China and Europe, as the market for this type of vehicle in North America is minor.

  • (There is some confusion as to the source of this information — Autohome cites “foreign media sources”, but the only other stories on this topic point back to Autohome. A grain of salt, perhaps?)

Thanks Den!
