CT 200By JC Levesq (I am an Owner), Mar. 09, 2014I love this car. It's handling, comfort and economy are the principal strong notes.
Luxury hybridBy Tommy Reynolds (I am an Owner), Mar. 09, 2014Thinking of getting a Prius? You should take a better look at the CT200h. Looking at hybrids, I didn't want to jump on the Prius bandwagon, but was intrigued by what Lexus had to offer with the CT200h... more
2013 Lexus CT 200h OverviewThe Lexus CT 200h is a full hybrid compact 5-door full of Lexus fit and finish priced around $30,000. The CT200h was created and developed originally for the European market, but is now available in the US 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 will be an available option. 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.
Three factory option packages are available: Premium Audio includes a 6-disc premium system with 10 speakers, an electrochromic rearview mirror with compass and Lexus HomeLink. The Leather Package includes auto-dimming outer mirrors, driver memory seat, rain-sensing intermittent wipers and perforated leather seating surfaces. The Navigation Package has a long list of connectivity components along with voice-command and an array of navigational aids. A pre-collision System and a dynamic cruise control can be included as factory installed options.
The F Sport package includes 17-inch glossy wheels, sport-tuned suspension, mesh grille, aluminum pedals, a large rear spoiler, scuff plates and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The Toyota-developed, front-wheel-drive, hybrid system uses a highly efficient Atkinson cycle, 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. The engine is supplemented by a pair of 650-volt motor/generators. The system's total combined horsepower is 134, which is capable of delivering 0-60 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.
The CT offers four driving modes. Normal, EV, ECO and Sport. EV allows the CT to operate on battery power as much as possible. ECO smoothes throttle response and reduces climate control usage to maximize fuel efficiency. The Sport mode changes the character of the CT, changing the instrument illumination, replacing the hybrid power monitor with a tachometer in the gauge cluster, tightening the steering response and turning the traction and stability control's intervention thresholds down.
2013 Lexus CT 200h Model Changes
The Lexus CT200h is only slightly altered for 2013. A redesigned navigation system is the most obvious change. It now includes the next generation of Lexus Enform as well as Safety Connect, App Suite and HD Radio. A seat comfort package is also new for this year, featuring a heated driver's seat and a 4-way power adjustable passenger seat.
2013 Lexus CT 200h Value
Luxury buyers have a growing list of options when it comes to environmentally friendly, high-efficiency vehicles. The CT200h is based on sibling Toyota's Prius model, but adds Lexus-style luxury appointments. For a Lexus, it's inexpensive with base prices starting under $32,000, but the CT comes with the styling, interior appointments and safety Lexus owners expect.
2013 Lexus CT 200h Strengths
Premium 5-door compact; high-value pricing; performance-oriented hybrid technology.
