Lexus IS Hatchback

24 Jan
2014


Saw pictures of the first generation IS in wagon form, or SportСross according to Lexus, I wonder if the rear can be shortened and make this the only premium RWD hatch of the early millennia. While the overall styling is dated by now, I like these renderings. I think the hatchback IS looks rather cool.

The SportCross was already shorter than the sedan, they were trying to cover both hatch and wagon bases with one body.

It looks pretty good, although I think the taillights aren’t suited for a hatchback.

They need to do something like this to break into the European super lux mini market.
