Toyota's luxury arm just got a whole lot more interesting with the unofficial unveiling of the Lexus LF-NX. The hybrid crossover is set to officially debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but like all good show cars, it has shown itself a bit earlier. The sharply angled crossover is a hybrid and sports a futuristic touchscreen in place of its center console. The crossover appears to be designed for urbanites who occasionally leave the city and who are eco-conscious.

The Lexus LF-NX isn't built for speed; the front-wheel drive concept has a 2.5-liter engine good for 156 horsepower and an electric engine that kicks in another 44. Lexus is keeping quiet on the details of the LF-NX; expect to hear more when the concept is officially unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor show that starts on September 10.
