Engine/ transmission has a subcategory of fuel economy: Lexus 222 pts, Infinity 210 pts, BMW, Audi 199 pts (Audi has only a 2 litre gasoline engine, still not doing too well in fuel economy!)

Not surprised. Audi has cut corners with A6 before by combining real leather on the front of the seat with fake one at the back of the seat.

If Lexus indeed increases the overhang, it could be to increase the trunk size, currently handicapped compared to competition, and to improve the shape of the trunk.
