Could Lexus Really be Bringing Back the Sports Cross?
(News4us.com) January 14, 2013
Well known Japanese automaker Lexus has auto industry tongues wagging after recent suggestions on its Facebook page.
During the build-up of the 2014 IS premiere on its official Facebook page, the auto company seems to have dropped a very broad hint aimed that it is going to do just that.
The automaker stated, “Do you remember the ‘02 IS 300 Sport Cross with its style, utility and performance? Will we bring it back? Watch the 2014 IS premiere on Facebook in 6 days to find out!”
The first generation IS was released in the United States and Europe as a station wagon under the Sport Cross moniker and later Toyota went on to market the vehicle under its own brand in Japan which it named the Altezza Gita.
While the current generation of the IS, debuts in only sedan and hardtop-convertible styles.
Many auto buffs are asking why the automaker would be hinting at stepping back in time with a future model release, while others say it is just a hoax to draw media attention to its latest offerings.
The new, third generation IS appeared online on Wednesday in sedan style, ahead of its world premiere at next week’s much anticipated Detroit Auto Show.
