It's been around for awhile in other markets as a long stroke 4cyl 2.7 liter FWD only. http://blogs.automotive.com/four-cyl...der-96453.html . I doubt you'll ever see 'that' car here.

Thanks for clarifying it existent for that long. It is sad that Lexus did not export this car here. It would have been a hot selling one instead of the next NX concept, just due to the MPG alone, it is a winner

Keep in mind, some markets have very heavy customs on the engine displacement. On top of that, there's a
tax on HP produced. Hence RX270 for them.
Being such a heavy vehicle, it would not fly here in the US.

RX450h is a great compromise between fuel efficiency and power.

We, US market, only get the big engine models, not just Lexus but it extends to other European car manufactures.
It's always frustrating to see other countries get varieties while the US customers get limited options and models.
