3. Lexus IS SportCross
Yep. Lexus sold the first-generation IS with a badonkadonk. Unfortunately, the Japanese luxury car didn’t have the same catchy appeal as Sir Mixalot’s song about “rap guy’s girlfriends” and their round behinds.
If you’ve ever wondered what automotive writers dream about, this comes pretty close, except for the fact that it wasn’t packaged with a manual.
Predictably, the North American market rejected the SportCross like a cheerleader deflecting dorky prom dates.
