Having seen that thing in person, it is not much of a Rav4 competitor at all...more like a luxury version of a Scion xD. Very small, and much more like a wagon/hatchback.
Yes, I saw it, too...at the D.C. Auto Show in January. But it seems to be about the same exterior size as the red graphic Lexus cute-ute shown in the opening post.....which is noticeably larger than an xD.
I've owned an RX since 1999, and even with my new RX450h coming in another 3 weeks or so, I'd be interested in a hybrid version... Before my first RX, I owned a RAV4 that my mom has been driving ever since, and honestly considered switching back to a new RAV before ordering my RX450h last Fall.. The RAV size, and if it was hybrid with Lexus amenities, would match me perfectly -- better than my next RX for sure. ...just please, Lexus, make the back hatch open vertically like my RX's, instead of horizontally as the RAVs always have, to fit in my garage so I can open the back with the garage door closed.
Present: '13 RX450h, '14 Mercedes SLK250 (R172)
Past: '06 RX400h; '09 BMW 335i (E93), '02 SC430, '99 RX300, '95 SC300, '91 Acura Legend ...and a few before that
