Get out the torches and pitchforks, folks. Here we have FUTUREPEEP #2.
First off, let's all forgive Lexus for calling this the SportCross and concentrate on the fact that this is the IS300 in shooting brake/sport wagon form. The SportCross didn't sell too well in the US (probably because they called it the SportCross), so they're on the scarce side a decade or so later. The lack of a manual (in US models) is a huge drawback, but these can be found in AWD trim, so we'll call it even.
Complaints and criticisms are welcome in the comments below.
Thanks for playing.
