After official photos of Lexus' new concept were leaked ahead of its scheduled debut, the Japanese automaker has finally revealed the actual LF-SA at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Billed by the automaker as a driver-focused vehicle, the LF-SA is said to highlight the brand's signature styling when applied to a compact city car.

Finished in Stellar Silver, the concept has exterior dimensions that measure 3,400mm long, 1,700mm wide and 1,430mm tall which is essential for a city car's agility according to Lexus. Ever present at the front is the company's spindle grill that is combined with sleek headlights and a wide bumper.

The side features muscular wheel arches and well-defined character lines while the rear gets L-shaped taillights, rear foglamps and a radically-designed bumper.

Aboard, the interior is finished in hues of white, gray and purple. It features a 2+2 seat layout that gives priority to the driver. The driver's seat is fixed and only the pedals and steering wheel are adjustable. The front passenger seat however slides which allows ingress and egress for the rear occupants.
