Lexus IS Sportcross & Lexus CT 200h Together

Here’s the unique sight of a Lexus CT 200h together with a first-generation IS Sportcross, as taken by automotive author Basem Wasef:

Lexus CT 200h with IS Sportcross

Even though the IS Sportcross was released before Lexus’ L-Finesse design language, you can still see a ton of similarities between the models, particularly in the rear.

Great photo!

    So does the next generation Mercedes A-Class: http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2011/05/004-mercedes-benz-a-class-drawings-lead.jpg The Matrix set the standard shape for everyone, it seems.

Cool! I never thought to compare the CT to the IS wagon. I always thought the CT reminded me of the Toyota Matrix (not that I think the CT is bad or anything). I can definitely see the design consistencies between the CT and the IS wagon.

    Yeah -- turns out the photographer's friend owns the IS Sportcross and it just made sense to put them together. Crazy that they were both silver, though.

I still preference the IS. The design is timeless, which is very hard to do in a mainstream vehicle. That car was a homerun for Lexus, and bulletproof reliable.

    yeah true, the only car Today that would fir under 'timeless' will be the LS460, it truly is a sophisticated looking car, they make it beautiful without it being flash and that's a challenge, you see new cars today with all the chrome but they still look cheap and ugly..
