Premium and practical 5-door compact; high-value pricing; fuel economy; performance-oriented hybrid technology
The Lexus CT 200h is a full hybrid compact 5-door replete with Lexus fit and finish and priced around $32,000. The CT 200h was created and developed originally for the European market, but is available in the U.S. and aimed directly at America's young, highly discerning and environmentally conscientious customers.
The driver-centered cabin is designed with clearly defined display and operational zones. Audio and telephone controls share the steering wheel, while three multi-function stalks are just behind, only an inch away. The shift lever is mounted high on the console, inches from the wheel. A console-mounted "mouse" operates the display on a large, central, pop-up eye-level screen for multiple control functions at a glance.
Seating surfaces are trimmed in a soft synthetic, but leather is available. Front seats are designed in the deeply bolstered sports style. The rear bench is also bolstered as two separate sports seats and folds flat in a 30/70 split to add carrying capacity. Lexus-level safety is standard, as is dust and pollen filtration in the dual-zone climate control system.
Available options include navigation system that includes a backup camera, Bluetooth, Lexus Enform smartphone integration and a 10-speaker premium audio system.
A Premium package adds variable rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink.
An F SPORT package adds exterior trim upgrades as well as aluminum pedals, sportier suspension tuning, and unique 17-inch wheels as well as other tech upgrades inside.
The powertrain for the CT 200h comprises an Atkinson-cycle 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission and a pair of 650-volt motor/generators. The system's total combined output is 134 horsepower, which is capable of delivering 0?60 mph times of 9.8 seconds and EPA fuel economy of 43 mpg city, 40 highway. The electric-assisted rack and pinion power steering includes power-splitting traction control.
Luxury buyers have a growing list of options when it comes to environmentally friendly, high-efficiency vehicles. The CT 200h is based on sibling Toyota's Prius model, but adds Lexus-style luxury appointments. The CT 200h is inexpensive among Lexus models, with base prices starting around $32,000, but it comes with the styling, interior appointments and safety Lexus owners expect.
The CT 200h gets a little bit more chrome around the grill for 2016. Also new for 2016 are a couple of nifty apps, that allow owners to view information about their car, unlock it, control the climate control system and even turn the vehicle off and on; all from their phone.
