Let's be fair here, not only was Isuzu ahead of the curve by about 10 years when they first premiered the concept, they weren't the company to pull it off. The VehiCross was too good for its own good and no one steps or stepped foot in an Isuzu dealer to find a luxury sport coupe crossover. Wrong time, wrong company. If Infiniti marketed a SWB 2-door FX it would sell like hotcakes. Period.
The Jeep Compass was on the right track (in concept form). The problem is not the idea... it's the coupe market in general. It doesn't sell well. It's fickle, it runs hot and cold. Today's hottie is tomorrow's old news. It's cheaper for a company to retool an existing sedan into a coupe than to build a dedicated name, image and niche. The perfect opportunity can only come about when an existing platform can be retooled... maybe the next gen Sportage, maybe a car based SUV coupe a la Rondo (which is based on the Optima). It's a niche market. It's all about the profit margins. It will only come from a profitable company that's for sure. I just don't see it happening. I rue the day the Audi Steppenwolf wasn't green-lighted.
