While the other automakers are comparing horsepower, zero-to-sixty times and top speeds, Lexus is taking a more practical approach to the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, by showcasing its LF-SA city car concept.
To give you some context, the the LF-SA Concept is 135 inches long, making it 9 inches shorter than a Chevy Spark. But it still features seating for up to four passengers. Of course, beyond its small size, the most eye catching thing about the LF-SA is its design. Lexus says the car has a 'Time in Design' styling approach where your perceptions of the vehicle will change when viewed from different angles. That is clearly the case with the cars new interpretation of the spindle grille, which on the LF-SA is far more angular than in past iterations of the design element. Another striking design feature of the LF-SA is its wheel arches – a rare element in subcompact cars. Of course Lexus is still going full bore with an arrow-head motif, as seen in the headlights, daytime running lights and tail lights.

It's interesting...

The thing about these is that they don't do particularly well in the US. Europe is a better market for something like this.
Scion killed the iQ due to poor sales. It was too expensive for what you got. These sub-compact city cars are great if priced well. I see a production LF-SA as being too pricey.
Did Aston Martin ever sell any of the Cygnet? It was super cool looking but nobody was going to pay 60K+ despite the badge.
