Lexus-The New CT200h

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.
