One of the hallmarks of major auto shows is the teases and the hints that automakers dole out in the weeks (sometimes months) before the orchestrated unveilings under the bright lights. Lexus isn’t saying much about a new “Premium Compact Concept” that will bow at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month other than, well, it’s compact, which we assume means it’ll be more efficient than something like the RX 450h. Lexus is also saying that the concept car “will demonstrate a mix of technical innovation and ground-breaking design that promises to raise the bar in the premium compact segment,” which we’re thinking means hybrid drivetrain. Could it also wear the CT name? We’ll know more on September 15.
