What at first seemed to be just another concept now is getting serious as you will see in the photos below. What we have here are three spy photos showing the production version of the Lexus LF-Ch hatchback. For those of you who forgot, the Lexus LF-Ch made its word debut during the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The five door hatchback is wrapped in some sort of plastic, so we can not get to see it without any camouflage. Still, the general shapes and lines are quite easy to see.
From what we can tell, the design of the production ready Lexus LF-Ch has been toned down a little, but it almost identical to the one seen on the concept version. Practically, this will most likely be a good example that a production car can look almost the same as the concept. Some of the new things in comparison to the concept version seem to be the new rear bumper and the new tail lights while the hidden rear door handles have been replaced by conventional ones.
The Lexus LF-Ch will get both hybrid and conventional powertrains. The production version of the Lexus LF-Ch will probably make its world debut during the 2010 Geneva Salon that will take place in March. It will be interesting to see how well will the Lexus LF-Ch be received by the market, considering that it will compete against the Audi A3 and the BMW 1-Series .
In my opinion, if the production version will be close in terms of design to the concept (and it seems it will be), then I expect a huge success for the new Lexus model. The concept really impressed me in terms of exterior styling, but the interior really needs some more attention so that the Lexus LF-Ch will turn out to be a complete car.
