While the NY Auto Show just entered its second press day, Lexus pulled an ace out of its sleeve and chose the Vancouver International Auto Show to display an old acquaintance of ours in Canada.
It's called LF-SA (Lexus Future Small Adventurer) and it's an "ultra-compact 2+2 luxury vehicle", as the Japanese firm describes it, originally shown last year in Geneva.
Despite adopting a compact footprint, the automaker says that the LF-SA boasts a spacious interior, with a 2+2 layout and focused placed at the driver, who gets to sit on a fixed seat and adjustable steering column and pedals, while the front passenger's seat slides to allow access to the rear seating.
Enhancing driving experience are the wide-angle head-up display and a hologram-style digital display, part of the infotainment system, incorporated into the instrument binnacle.
Lexus is cagey about the powertrain of the study, which shares the brand's Canada Show stand with the 2016MY range and a virtual reality simulator that lets visitors race a Lexus over a realistic interpretation of the Fuji Speedway track.
