British media is reporting Lexus plans to showcase a production version of the LF-NX concept in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Lexus is working a compact crossover that will retain many of the striking styling cues seen in the two versions of the LF-NX. Lexus' European director Paul Van der Burgh told Auto Express that clients want to be more expressive nowadays which is why "a lot of the concept's inherent design will come out in the finished car."

The concept debuted in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show with a hybrid setup encompassing a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine working with an electric motor. Last month in Tokyo, Lexus brought a Turbo version of the concept which was powered by a newly developed 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine equipped with D-4S and VVT-i combustion technologies.

Expect both powertrains to find their way in the production version which is programmed to go on sale as early as next summer.
