The report states that the BX could see a prospective launch in 2023. Anticipations are that it will function styling cues from the even larger UX, but it won’t be as tall as the Toyota Yaris Cross for enhanced driving dynamics. It will also make use of Toyota’s GA-B platform. The BX could, consequently, be driven by the Yaris Cross’ hybrid powertrain, which sees a one.five-liter, 3-cylinder engine paired with an electrical motor to develop 116 horsepower.

Though the Yaris Cross’ raised experience height, chunky styling with sq. wheel arches, and all-wheel-push system just about qualify it as an SUV, it can be in all probability greater believed of as a taller hatchback, as we do not be expecting to see it chasing a Range Rover down a treacherous route at any time before long. With Lexus owning more of a luxurious target, the BX will likely even further blur the lines among SUV and hatchback.
