This rendered Lexus IS hatchback is a huge improvement over the existing CT hybird hatch. Now only if Lexus would build it.
Sadly, this Lexus IS hatchback is just a rendering created by the always talented Theophilus Chin. And it proves just how ugly the automaker’s current hatchback, the CT, really is. The CT also doesn’t win any points due to the fact that it’s a hybrid. But the new IS sedan is really a solid-looking car, no doubt one of the best things to have ever come out of Lexus’s design studio. And judging by these renderings it’d look great as a hatchback too.
Instead of the CT’s puny hybrid drivetrain, the IS hatch would pack either a 2.5- or 3.5-liter V6. But what we’d really like to see is a new IS F sedan as well as an IS F hatch. So is anyone from Lexus reading this? We certainly hope so, because even an IS 350 hatch with 306 horsepower sounds enticing.
