It's an estate, not a hatchback--not matter how Lexus tries to sell it. This caters to the same buyers are BMW and Audi estates/tourings.

But do I personally like it, no. Not a fan of the IS styling--especially the rear lights. But that's another topic altogether. Also, Lexus is going the wrong direction. They should make the IC, an IS coupe, because coupes look sportier.

And that's... my USD $0.02.

:) I'd tossed that thought around in my head before, but seeing the psuedo-moniker for it makes it even more interesting...

Hmm... IC430... :eek: ;)

Yeah, I was thinking about that too. Or they can call it the IS430C, which makes absolutely no sense. The I-Saloon-430-Coupe?!?! Think IC is bad?!? What about the EC300... Easy 300.

the wagon/sedan are both 5-speeds FYI. And if the wagon was available in a manual when I got my IS, I would have gotten it instead... Lexus is slowly expanding the line, expect big things...
