Lexus is allegedly working on a new compact SUV that will compete with the likes of the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLA.

While looks will look similar to the Lexus RX, the compact SUV model will have subtle design enhancements and will only be available as a hybrid model.

According to Kasuo Ohara, international executive vice president of Lexus, a concept version of the baby Lexus SUV could debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show later this year.

Power is expected to come from a 178-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and electric motor from the Lexus IS 300h. Output should come in around 218-hp.

Look out for the baby Lexus to hit markets in 2014.
