The Lexus CT 200h made it’s debut here at Peterson Lexus in Boise, Idaho just a few months ago. Since then it has been quick to make an impact . The CT reaches a higher level of driver engagement, the Japanese automaker’s marketing efforts personifying a sporty, youthful experience. At first glance, one may think the CT 200h looks a bit like a glorified Mazda3, but it is far from it. The CT is much more aggressive and more visually appealing. The CT would be profiled as a hatchback, with a high beltline, attractive 17-inch alloys and a dynamic C-pillar that segues into a small rear spoiler over the narrow band of rear glass. There isn’t a particular element that stands out in the design, but Lexus has created a whole package comes together to create the ultimate hybrid vehicle that is sporty and pure luxury .
Inside, the 2011 CT 200h delivers the quality and comfort just what you’d expect from a Lexus. Lexus has used environmentally friendly materials like the all-new NuLuxe seating. NuLuxe generates fewer emissions during production than leather and weighs half as much, even the speakers are made with bamboo. Lexus claims that 85% of the vehicle can ultimately be recycled.
Standard features include:
- Bluetooth® connectivity
- Audio streaming
- Automatic dual-zone climate control
- Push button start with smart key
- USB/auxiliary audio inputs
As always, Lexus has made sure that the CT 200h excels in safety. There are eight air bags, vehicle stability control, anti-lock brakes, and Lexus’ Safety Connect system. The CT 200h also comes equipped with front seats that are designed to reduce the severity of a whiplash injury in the event of a collision.
