Report: Lexus working on compact crossover to fit below the RX

A baby Lexus crossover is long overdue – well, if reports are to be believed a compact Lexus crossover may be coming to a dealership near you. Reports coming out of UK suggest that Lexus is working on a crossover that will compete against the Range Rover Evoque, Audi Q5, BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK.

While Lexus has enjoyed a lot of success with the RX, Andy Pfeiffenberger, vice president of Lexus Europe, said that the company wants to focus on the class below.

“We have been very slow to come to the market with a downsized SUV,” he told AutoExpress. “This is an area of our range that you will see develop over the next few years.”

We’re pretty sure that a hybrid powertrain will be an option.
