KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 12/31/2013


The 2014 Lexus CT 200h is a stylish, sporty 5-door hatchback that may look all-Lexus, but actually shares much of its mechanicals with the Toyota Prius. Lexus, of course, puts its own stamp on the CT 200h giving it aggressive styling, a sportier suspension and a more robust version of the Prius' 1.8-liter gasoline/hybrid electric motor powertrain. The CT's interior also benefits from the Lexus touch, with upscale fabrics, better sound deadening and more features. Of course, these upgrades add weight to the CT 200h, which is why fuel economy figures fall short of what the Prius earns. While not as quiet or refined as other Lexus products, the CT 200h still feels special in the way luxury cars are supposed to make their owners feel.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a luxury car with a big dose of style and efficiency but a very small carbon footprint, the 2014 Lexus CT 200h tops a very short list.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're into rapid acceleration and quick bursts of power, the CT 200h isn't going to impress you. You could opt for Cadillac's ELR, which has more horsepower and is a stunning piece of work, but is also double the CT 200h's price.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 CT 200h receives Lexus' signature spindle-grille design, as well as new 17-inch wheels, revised rear styling and a solid-black roof panel on the F-Sport trim. A new, thinner fixed navigation and Display Audio screen graces the dash while rain-sensing wipers are added to the Premium package.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Let's face it: The 2014 Lexus CT 200h is no match for the BMW 1 Series, Cadillac ELR or upcoming Audi A3 sedan, at least not in the areas of performance and handling. But in the areas of styling, comfort and reliability, the CT 200h shines, and none of its rivals can match the little Lexus' impressive fuel-economy figures. Get the CT 200h on a twisty back road, and it will surprise you with its agility and quick response, especially with the Sport drive mode engaged. In Sport mode, the steering and throttle response are sharpened, and there is a noticeable difference compared to the softer Normal and super-soft Eco modes intended for everyday driving. Add on the F-Sport package and the CT 200h gets stiffer springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. The F-Sport package creates a sportier ride, but it's one that traditional Lexus owners might find a bit too harsh.

Favorite Features

SELECTABLE DRIVING MODES
The CT 200h offers its owner a choice of three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Eco. Each varies throttle response to favor performance (Sport), fuel economy (Eco) or a middle ground (Normal). The Sport mode also quickens the steering response and increases battery output for maximum power.

DISPLAY AUDIO TOUCH SCREEN
The new fixed touch screen in the CT 200h can be divided to multiple information screens. When equipped with navigation, the screen can act as a single screen (maps), a split screen (maps and audio or compass) or three displays on the same screen (maps, audio and weather).
