    Lexus CT 200h

    No question, there is a need out there for a plusher Toyota Prius, combining fuel economy and versatility with added luxury. The Lexus CT 200h tries to take the mantle, but leaves a lot to be desired and ultimately, doesn't really live up to expectations. The good news: It gets an impressive 40 mpg overall. But if you expect a Lexus experience in a small package, chances are you'll be disappointed.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

    Overall Owner Satisfaction

    Owner Satisfaction with:

    Driving Experience

    Includes acceleration and handling

    What Owners Say

    "Acceleration,handling, MPG"

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "It handles very well, much better than you'd think. Power and acceleration is well considered. It has exactly as much as needed for normal driving (for a freeway merge or passing, for example) but no more than that! I've never felt the need for more power, but you can't be indecisive or you could need more than it can deliver in the moment. Think ahead and commit and you'll be fine!"

    SCOTT P., CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "slow acceleration handling is sluggish"

    Anonymous, CT (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Acceleration could be better."

    MIGUEL M., IL (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "It doesn't drive like an exonomy car it handles really well"

    Anonymous, TX (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Suprizingly the acceleration is great even on the economy setting but if you need more put it on sport."

    John W., TX (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Great handling. Almost like a Porsche. Low and wide"

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Accelerates well for a small engine. Low center of gravity, handles well"

    A V., NJ (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Peppy and maneuverable. Great city car"

    Glenn E., DC (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    Comfort

    Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

    What Owners Say

    "Front seats are very comfortable. Rarely do we use the rear seats that have little leg room."

    ROGER A., CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Interior is not up to the level of expectation of a Lexus. Only one power seat, 'fake' leather, no compass in the mirror, stereo is of a substantially lower quality. It is more like the interior of a Toyota."

    JAMES D., MA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Too much road/wind noise in cabin for a Lexus."

    MIGUEL M., IL (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Ride is firm but acceptable; climate control is accurate and easy to use, no pronblems; seats are comfortable and supportive, although I wish the driver's seat went back farther; the car could use a lot better noise suppression."

    JOHN L., CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "GPS bezel has annoying rattle or something loose inside."

    Anonymous, CT (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Car rides hard and is a bit sluggish. Unless. You put it in Sport mode, then it is fun to drive."

    RICHARD M., CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "This is our biggest complaint about the car but is not the reason we would not repurchase it. We plan to shift to four wheel drive."

    JAMES C., OR (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Ride can be bumpy some times may be due to the fact that car sits so low from road. Noice level is moderately high."

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Very noisy interior on standard roads. Expected much quieter ride from Lexus. Fan noisy also. Seats could be better."

    LISA P., WA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Handling/ride."

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    John W., TX (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    Anonymous, NC (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

    What Owners Say

    "I'm very satisfied with the great mileage it gets."

    Anonymous, AZ (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "It provided exactly what we were looking for, great gas mileage, styling, and fun to drive. It's one drawback is seat comfort. I am 6' tall; the car seems to be more compatible for a smaller person. I've looked at after market seats."

    ROBERT G., CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Certified used car cost about same as a new one."

    Anonymous, CA (2011 Lexus CT 200h)
