Report: The Lexus RC Convertible killed in favor of a new three-row crossover

Lexus had a pretty big moment revealing the LF-C2 Concept at the LA Auto Show last week, which pitched at a successor to the IS Convertible and a variant to the RC Coupe, to ensure Lexus has its aim tightly set on rivals like the BMW 4-Series.

But now, according to MotorTrend, the production LF-C2 has been axed in favor of a new three-row crossover. Originally, the LF-C2 was approved for production after having the three-row crossover idea axed. This apparently upset dealers around the country since it contradicted heavy customer demand. Due to this uproar, Lexus decided to switch it back up by cancelling the LF-C2 to make the three-row crossover instead.

Not much is known about said crossover, but previous rumors suggested the RX could grow in size to accommodate a third row. Whoever, nothing’s officially been confirmed.
