Lexus will go for a three-row crossover instead of offering the RC convertible

Article by Christian A., on November 23, 2014

The Lexus LF-C2 Concept a.k.a. the convertible version of the RC Coupe made quite a buzz at the 2014 LA Auto Show, but don’t make any plans folks as the Japanese manufacturer will not offer such a vehicle. Apparently, dealers requested for a three-row crossover and that’s why, the company had to put on hold the RC convertible.

So, Lexus is working on a three-row crossover, but what’s more interesting is that the upcoming vehicle will not use an extended version of the RX’s wheelbase, but the one used by the upcoming LS flagship sedan.

The rear-wheel-drive platform will allow Lexus to take on competitors such as the Mercedes-Benz GL, Audi Q7 and the Infiniti QX80. Regarding its debut, the new Lexus crossover will arrive in three years, as a 2018 model year.

Of course, we loved to see a convertible version of the RC Coupe but Lexus has to think at its sales before providing sexy sports cars to petrol heads.
