What's really interesting is that we haven't seen any spy shots yet... so maybe just a concept version instead of the production model?

Jim Lentz, Toyota USA President said this to Wards:

And he promises several more new Lexus products will be introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January.
The IS for sure and maybe the production model of the CX if only a concept is shown at Paris?

It's nice and all, but Lexus should concentrate on making their IS and GS coupes first before extending their model line up. Also they really need focus more on their "REAL F" performance car line up, as of this date all they really have is the ISF and the unattainable LFA. The Fsport options are all fine and dandy but what about the real performance Lexus's, not just body kitted suspension tweaked regular ho-hum Lexus's.

However, I believe Rav4 based CUV will be a much bigger seller than "real F".

Follow up:

Went to BMW to test drive the X1 the other day. Really nice ride, just the size I want for my daily drive. Don't like the way BMW prices its cars everything ala carte. The entry price was great then you add in amenities and its the price of an RX - WTH??? No availability - two cars in stock. Checked the "boat" and still not the color combo I wanted. Would have to special order - 6 weeks out. Not waiting for that - not worth the effort.

Bit the bullet and got a CT200H yesterday. Traded in my husband's '08 GX - loved the car hated the mileage. Too big for us now that we are a two person household.

Got a Fire Agate Pearl, Premium - with Sadle nubuck interior- upgraded premium audio and Z2 package. No one in the southern region had one with NAV (which I really wanted) - was #$%^ about that.

Getting tinted and pinned on Thursday. Really compact from my usual drive RX 350 (my husband has that one now).

Ordered the all weather mats and cargo tray - should be here Thursday.

that's exactly what I told my friend when we went to test drive and he was about to buy one. Don't every pay 46k+ for x1...what a waste of junk for the price.

Without NAV. There were none available in the Southern Region and I would have had to pay $$$ to have it shipped here.

Upgrading my phone to a phablet soon, Galaxy Note II, will use that instead for NAV.

Congratulations. A CT200H won't have quite the versatility, interior room, or bad-weather traction of an AWD X1, but it has a heck of a lot better paint-job than lower-line BMWs, is better-built, likely to be more reliable, and, of course, will stretch out your gas-dollars a lot more.

Congrats on purchasing the CT 200h. You'll enjoy the MPG's. Since you're a two person household the CT will be fine for the both of you. Happy driving...come and visit the CT 200h forum. There are many members from all over the U.S and in foreign countries as well...
