Lexus has announced that it will display two vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show this month: a sports coupe production prototype and a turbocharged compact crossover concept.



The Lexus RC is a sports coupe that may have either a 3.5-liter internal-combustion gasoline engine or a 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain. It has a sporty and dynamic profile and sits low to the ground with its wide stance. The RC also features the brand\'s design elements, like the L-shaped rear combination lamps and headlamps inspired by the LFA and LF-LC sports cars. Inside, it has a horizontally accented instrument panel, that \"is crafted with a focus on the unity of car and driver,\" while its seats are manufactured with a new \"integrated foaming\" process that provides its occupants with an \"exceptional fit.\"

The Lexus LF-NX, on the other hand, is a next-generation compact crossover that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year. For the Tokyo Motor Show, it has been equipped with a newly developed 2.0-liter turbo engine, \"guaranteeing superior driving and environmental performance.\" Emphasizing the LF-NX\'s performance is its lower center of gravity that\'s further accented by the front under-spoiler. Inside, the crossover has a remote touch interface with touchpad functionality that provides \"a cutting-edge, user-friendly experience unique to Lexus.\"

So, which existing Lexus models do you think the RC and the LF-NX will replace?
