So I’m hopeful that the new Corolla hatch will actually be pretty good. It’s a strange thing to say out loud but here we are. Lexus, on the other hand, continues its steady march of disappointment.

This is the Corolla’s platform sibling - the Lexus UX (Ugly X-over) and its literally a taller, heavier, uglier, slower and fancier C-HR, related to the new Corolla. You can get it in AWD, if you get the Hybrid, otherwise its FWD only. It’s all the worst parts of the C-HR without the whimsy, and all the worst parts of the current Lexus design language without the performance.

It’s basically the terrible CT200 only a crossover so it will sell like mad.
