About Lexus CT

The 2016 Lexus CT 200h hybrid is a Prius for those who want excellent fuel economy, but don't want to drive a mainstream brand. We mean that literally: The CT 200h and Prius share a hybrid powertrain, suspension, and other basic underpinnings. Yet you'd be hard-pressed to tell. The grille, now ringed in chrome, is straight from the Lexus school of design, and the interior leathers and wood trim are unlike anything you can get in a Prius. While its fuel economy isn't quite up to the Prius standard, it offers a bit more power in return, helping establish it as a fuel-efficiency leader in a luxury class that includes the Audi A3 e-tron and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

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.

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.

"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!"

"Looking for a FUN/LUXURY/RELIABLE/ECO-FRIENDLY/SUSTAINABLE/STYLISH car?? you have already found it. Bought my car in march 2011 and so far 0 problem 0 disappointment but so much joy and proud of being a CT200h owner. Besides it's great performance and look this car is by far THE MOST ECO_FRIENDLY/GREEN car i have seen and driven. car is made of materials that 90% of it can be recycle!!! exp: speakers are made of bamboo!! and Nuluxe seats weights half as much as leather and its manufacturing process generates 65% fewer CO2 emission than traditional synthetic leather and no VOCs. "according to Lexus CT200h car brochure" I am getting up to 50 mpg in city. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS CAR. It satisfies your sporty needs with out getting you in trouble and saves you enough money to pay your other bills"
