An anonymous source has sent these photos to WCF of what is likely the production version of the Lexus LF-Ch Concept.
The LF-Ch represents Lexus' foray into the premium compact segment in Europe - a simmering hatch to match the likes of the Audi A3 and the BMW 1-Series.
At the introduction of the LF-Ch Concept at the Frankfurt motor show last September, Lexus officials made it clear that the LF-Ch was more than a concept. furthermore, it represented a serious first approach to entering the competitive European premium compact segment.
The LF-Ch will share much of its components with the Lexus HS 250h and the Toyota Auris models. Judging from the plastic-wrapped production model here, the LF-Ch design has been toned-down from the concept version, with a more conservative styling that matches the main cues in the rest of the Lexus lineup.
The LF-Ch production version will likely debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
