Lexus Lf-c To Replace Is200?

Recommended Posts

:o Just catching up on my daily reading material, and the sun says that this new Lexus LF-C will replace the IS200. They look completely different and four seats also seems to be a problem as well. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Car looks good all the same:o

The LF-C is a concept. Some of the design elements will appear on new Lexus models.

The sun? :o

From The Sun Paper - On-Line :

"FEAST your eyes on the new Lexus LF-C roadster – a car that should kill off the firm’s reputation for dull styling.

Lexus — Toyota’s luxury arm — are renowned for quality and reliability, topping a recent customer satisfaction survey for the fourth year running.

But they are also dogged by a widely held view that their cars are just too unexciting.

Now comes the LF-C, a convertible the size of BMW’s 3 series, whose styling will also feature in the replacement for the current IS200, due next year.

Both cars will be part of a bolder new generation of Lexus models that will start with a hybrid version of the RX300 SUV — the 4x4 that started Lexus’s last styling revolution in 2000.

Its success has already proved that if Lexus add expressive styling to their other qualities, they have a commercial hit on their hands.

Since the RX300’s launch, Lexus have also launched the distinctive SC430 coupé/cabriolet, while next year’s sleek new GS300 saloon should prove a genuine alternative to the BMW 5 series and Mercedes E Class.

So far the only reasons Lexus have failed to grow significantly in the UK is a limited range of models, being too conservative on styling and the lack of a diesel.

With all those changing, the likes of Mercedes, Jaguar and BMW will soon have far more cause to worry about their Japanese rivals. "

Just for you Raz :winky: :P

I saw that in the Sun too and wondered why they didn't mention the styling of the IS as it's quite aggressive (I like it :D)
