Lexus planning new small hybrid crossover based on the CT 200h, 300h called CX

It seems that Lexus aims to boost its sales and the only solution would be to introduce new models. Due to the fact that consumers need smaller models, an ideal would be a little crossover, based on the popular CT 200h. The idea is not new to us, as in July, we reported that Toyota plans to launch six new hybrids and one of them would be a new Lexus 300h called CX, which will hit showrooms by the end of 2012.

The new crossover will look like a small RX and will make cars like the Audi Q3, BMW X1 or Infiniti EX. Few sources have confirmed that the new car will use a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with Hybrid Synergy Drive used in the Camry Hybrid and the success HS 250h dedicated hybrid sedan.

According to the magazine Auto Motor und Sport of Germany, the small crossover will be designed for the European market, but that does not mean it will not be available in the United States. A hybrid cross would be less perfect complement to the Lexus RX line composed of 45 percent of sales from the U.S. firm has so far this year.
