Default LF-Ch Survey: The results are in!!!

A few months ago, Lexus wanted to gauge opinions on their LF-Ch concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany just last year. Many of you participated in this survey. It was a series of questions in regard to what people thought of the LF-Ch and what attributes were favored. The results exceeds Lexus expectations about the LF-Ch concept car. With the positive results, it seems that the LF-Ch may come sooner than most would expect as these spy photos have now surfaced.

Lexus certainly does value your opinion and surveys like these help them gauge what we want for future products. They offered a survey to us previously with the ISF a few years ago before it was released. The folks at Lexus USA values these surveys and thanks everyone for their participation. It is definitely a commitment to their "Pursuit of Perfection".

Thank you!


It is evident that the look of the LF-Ch is important to people out there. 36% liked the front 3/4 the most and 24% liked the full front of the concept car.

64% voted that the look of the LF-Ch is Sporty and Aggressive. It's hopeful this look will help redefine what hybrid technology is all about it. It doesn't have to be boring and green, but it can also be sporty and fun.

Aggressive stance accounted to 45% of the vote in this category. It is great to see Lexus has implemented better wheel fitments and a stance that most European cars usually have.

There was a fairly even mix of what people liked in the interior. 31% liked the center console and controls, seating and interior along with the driver controls and meters nearly tied for 2nd place. An important attribute to any car is a comfortable, usable and modern interior. The LF-Ch seems to have great interior appeal.

90% of you voted for Lexus to build this car. Your wish may come true in the near future. Is the LF-Ch/C Premium as we know it going to be the next CT200h? Only time will tell!

Its always great to see how a survey finished up, thanks for sharing this.

From what we are seeing with spy shots etc looks like we may get to see this car in dealerships sooner rather than later and I think that's a good thing.

It's weird, that they didn't show the results to ALL of the questions...

What were the results for the question, "does the hybrid drivetrain make the LF-Ch more or less appealing?"

What were the results concerning the question asking if the hatchback design was a plus or negative?

Here are the questions on the survey that I was referring to.

Your thoughts on the 5-door body type?
Great, this body style is perfect for me.
Not my style.
Still on the fence

Does the Hybrid powertrain feature add to the appeal of this car?
Yes, I want MPG with looks and handling.
No, the hybrid attribute does not add to the car's appeal.
Doesn't really matter.

These questions are the ones that are going to determine if the LF-Ch is coming here or not, and in what form it will be (hybrid or regular gas car). The other ones are more superficial.

If this car can match the performance and price of an Audi A3 (with the fuel efficiency of its 32/40mpg diesel), it would sell like hotcakes.

I could see myself picking one up because I have a drastic increase in driving coming up this year. Now it's just waiting to see when/if they bring it to the US

Good turnout though I suspect those who filled out the survey are those who have interests in the car already. Of course the results will be positive

I saw it linked to a lot of other sites and trust, the Lexus haters got to post their say.

Coincidentally, they make up the 122 people who voted "bland/dull"

This car is anything but bland and dull. Bland and dull would describe the 97-01 Camry

I also would consider a car like this in a few years time as I drive a good bit and could use the space and flexibility. On the other hand, the FT86 should be out then as well, and ISFs and GS350s will be pretty cheap on the used market
