Jalopnik: Lexus To Unveil Hatch Concept At Frankfurt Show [Concept Cars]

Recommended Posts

504x_Lexus_Hatch_Concept.jpgLexus will be tossing water on its boring image with a stylish, Corolla-based five door hybrid hatchback concept. It'll preview a 2011 model year competitor for the Audi A3. Despite the hybridization and low-priced roots, it kinda looks interesting.

504x_Lexus_Hatch_2.jpgWe're a little leery of the Corolla underpinnings on what looks to aim for the grown-up hot hatch market, but it sounds like Lexus might finally be putting forward an offering for a slightly younger market. The as-yet unnamed five door hatch concept will debut at Frankfurt with the production version coming along at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010. The car will get a four cylinder in base trim and the 187 HP 2.4-liter hybrid powertrain out of the Lexus HS250h for the top-of-the-line model. If the performance is in any way backed by the looks, Lexus might finally have an entry that'll sell to the under-40 crowd. [Edmunds Straightline]

looks like a smaller venza...the front looks ugly, the rear looks kinda ugly... the side of it looks kinda good though.

I actually think that the design works on a car of this size. The fron 3/4 looks quite attractive. That rear 3/4 not so much though....
