They need to make it significantly longer to make it look good. Otherwise, It would look like a MazdaSpeed 3 or something lol.

Nah man......I don't see that happening.

With our luck though, I bet they make a wagon but only availlable overseas!

Hmmmmm, to be honest, Saab has already made a "SportCross successor", at when the rear of their 9-5 Sportcombi is seen from the side. Now that Saab is bust, does that mean Lexus can make this? I think those taillights look like a SportCross tribute!

I would buy it. I don' like the CT treatment in the back though, I would like the back to be similar to the 1st Gen SX or the current RX. Little more angular and aggresive.

I think one of the most perfect details of the SX is that the body lines all meet in the rear panel and blend just so into the rear hatch.

If they could pull that off into the new one, that would be sweet. Then again this may be all the Teo's girlfriend of the SportCross world!

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.
