Rumor dreams: Lexus making luxury, hybrid supermini?

Filed under: ,

The BMW Mini and, more recently, the new Fiat 500 are both drool-worthy, luxury superminis. It seems Toyota's luxury brand, Lexus, has caught small car envy from BMW and Fiat: Lexus is rumored to be working on a small, luxury car based on Toyota Auris platform. The rumor also says the mini could be a hybrid, with a RX powertrain and an electric engine in the boot. We think Lexus can pull it off: just take a look at Lexus' little LF-C concept in the picture above. Whatever it looks like, the rumored car may cost sub-£20k and start production within five years.
