The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety today announced the all-new 2011 Lexus CT200h hybrid earned a “Top Safety Pick” award.
The Lexus earned the award through enduring front, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations and its standard electronic stability control.
High-strength steel components are carefully located in the body structure to help ensure strength in key areas. The CT200h utilizes a standard eight-airbag Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) with dual-stage front airbags and knee airbags for driver and front passenger, side curtain airbags, and front side airbags to help protect front and rear passengers in certain types of severe frontal or side collisions.
The CT200h, which went on sale in March 2011, produces 134-hp and can achieve 43 mpg city and 40 mpg on the highway for a combined 42 mpg using regular 87-octane gasoline.
