The Lexus UX Concept will make its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, showcasing Lexus’ vision for a compact SUV of the future. This vehicle represents a new step in the company’s design journey and a redefinition of the driving experience.
The bold UX Concept design embodies imaginative and forward-thinking technologies to provide occupants with a fully immersive experience. All onboard HMI technology has been designed to offer progressive customers who live and work in an ever-connected environment an innovative, three-dimensional driver experience, reports Reuters.
The driver’s instrument binnacle houses a transparent globe, floating in the manner of a hologram, in which a combination of analog and digital information express a functional yet unexpected user interface.

The center console features a prominent, facetted crystal structure within which a hologram-style display of air conditioning and infotainment system is clearly visible to both driver and front passenger.
The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies are also on display in the new UX Concept. It features electro-chromatic windows, and the side-view mirrors are replaced by e-mirror camera housings far slimmer than conventional mirror housing. All switchgear is electrostatic and housed under transparent covers.
Finally, the fin motif used on the A pillar is repeated on the dashboard to provide a new audio experience for the next-generation Lexus customer: a removable sound bar built into the passenger side of the dashboard.
