Yes, I know: this rough sketch isn't news in itself, but it's the closest the media has to an official shot of Lexus's Euro hatchback. Toyota is convinced in order to break out of the corner it's stuck in, it'll have to branch out into the compact hatch market BMW and Audi have done well in holding. The car will be revealed in Frankfurt, but the depth of Lexus's planning isn't known. Toyota's banked on hybrid-electrics as the green path in the EU, but diesel remains deeply entrenched.
