The 2015 Lexus CT 200h gets a few small updates but is mostly carryover. Among the changes are the integration of the iPhone-compatible Siri Eyes Free Mode for the infotainment system, additional voice commands for the navigation system, and the addition of Slacker radio to the Lexus Enform app suite.
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.
The 2013 CT 200h is little changed. Silver Lining Metallic and Ultra White paint colors are added, the navigation system has some updates, and Park Assist and a Seat Comfort package (heated front seats and power adjustment added for the front passenger) are now available as stand-alone options.
All-new for the 2011 model year, the 2012 CT 200h is little changed. Nebula Gray Pearl paint replaces Smoky Granite Mica this year. Also, new is a Vehicle Proximity Notification System that beeps when the little Lexus hybrid is in electric mode to alert cyclists and pedestrians.
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h hybrid offers up a sporty and stylish shape that wears the now-familiar Lexus grille, but actually shares most of its mechanical underpinnings – including its hybrid powertrain – with the Toyota Prius. It's not just a reskin, though, as Lexus puts its own stamp on the CT 200h. The exterior styling is unmistakably Lexus, while the interior is swathed in leather and upscale fabrics, much better sound-deadening and plentiful luxury features. It also pumps up the 1.8-liter gasoline/hybrid electric motor powertrain. While the CT 200h doesn't offer the same fuel economy as a Prius, it has already established itself as a fuel-efficiency leader in the luxury class against competitors like the Audi A3 diesel and Cadillac ELR.View Lexus CT vehicles for sale near you.

"I looked at another Toyota,which I've had tons of luck with in the past. My previous car was a Rav4 which I traded in with 258,000 miles(yes 10 trips around the world) and never did anything but oil changes and tires. I loved the car but my job pays me per mile, so I decided to look into a smaller vehical with better milage. My first idea was a Prius, but I never liked the look. So I decided to look into a CT and was surprised at the actual cost being so reasonable for a Lexus brand product. It drives great and handles nicely. It's not a speedster and does not have great exceleration but it's been getting me 46 miles to the gallon so far. It's very comfortable for a smaller vehical, and I like the car more everyday. The stereo is better than average and the dash screen is great to have. If you want speed this isn't your car but if you want a great look,great milage,and nice features this is a hidden gem."

"I would consider this a step up from a Prius. I almost bought a Honda Insight, but liked this much more. Much more "connected" suspension than a Prius or Insight, very reasonably priced, considering it's a Lexus. Lots of standard equipment - the NAV is a must in my book - without it, the dash looks dated because of the old style radio they give you. Very connected with iPods - you can play your iPod via Bluetooth or the included dock connection. Milage is great, the "Sport" mode is very peppy, but I traded in a BMW M3, so this is a big shock on performance. The suspension is softer than the M3, but not mushy - a better compromise than the BMW provided. Has the look of a European 1 Series Hatchback (not imported to the US). I REALLY wanted another BMW, but they don't offer anything like this in the USA. Gas prices keep going up - this thing takes regular gas, and I'm getting 43 MPG (observed). It's not huge, but it can haul groceries or kids stuff with ease. I love it so far!"

"I recently went to the local Lexus Dealership with great anticipation but high skepticism of the New CT200h. I thought this may be just another FAILED attempt at a hybrid. The exterior of the vehicle is exceptionally well designed, although the rear of the car is a little different but all in all a very eye appealing vehicle. But that's not even the best part... the interior is incredible. Lexus hit a home run with the design on this car. Driving the CT puts the cherry on top. With the adjustable drive modes specifically the Sport Mode this has proven to be an amazingly fun Hybrid to drive. Handles Great, Impressive Acceleration especially for the 1.8 L 4 cyl that it offers. I suggest anyone considering this car to drive it... that's what sold me. Way to go Lexus. It's about time you hit a home run with a fuel effecient, stylish hybrid."
