As previously reported, Lexus will unveil a new concept at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show that aims to compete with the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series in Europe.

The new model - rumored to carry either the "BS" or "CS" nameplate - won't be built atop the Lexus HS250h's architecture, but it will utilize the gas-electric hybrid's 2.4-liter four-cylinder to deliver around 185 hp to the front wheels.

Although the model we'll see in Frankfurt is technically a concept, according to Lexus insiders, it will be "a 90% match for the real thing" which will debut in production form at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with sales beginning in Europe in the fall of 2010.

So let's see...

Lexus has a 3-Series 5-Series, and a 7 Series competitor, and is working on a 1-Series competitor. Cadillac has only a 5-Series Competitor and may or may not be working on a 3-Series and/or RWD/FWD/AWD/4WD/NoWD 7-Series competitor.
