Lexus CT replacement coming in 2021 - report

Lexus looks set to introduce a new entry-level compact vehicle to replace the current CT hatchback early next decade, according to a new report out of the UK. Autocar says Lexus' European boss, Pascal Ruch, confirmed the company's plans for a new model to slot under the compact UX crossover at the 2019 Geneva motor show, and that UK director, Ewan Shepherd, also hinted at such a vehicle earlier this year.

Lexus small electrified crossover taking shape, CT hatch on the outer

As expected, Lexus is odds-on to scrap the CT small hatchback and replace it with a small crossover SUV sharing some bits with the Toyota C-HR, to better capitalise on demand at the lower end of the luxury market. The CT200h is Lexus’ smallest car, and also its only vehicle sold exclusively with a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. Yet its global sales haven’t been spectacular, with the key US market even dropping the model for 2018.

Traditional Lexus buyers "love" the company's bold new design, says chief

Existing customers love Lexus’ polarising new styling direction with the distinctive ‘spindle’ grille, says the Japanese company’s local chief executive Sean Hanley. Traditionally a more conservative offering than price-point rivals such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the company has for a few years been hell-bent on sexing up its image and luring younger buyers with edgy styling.
