    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

    "The car is probably the most uninspiring to drive. Poor acceleratation and a funky CVT transmission. It seems difficult to get good gas mileage and be fun the drive too."

    Anonymous, CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "For a hybrid, it's peppy and accelerates quickly. The steering is very responsive and the car handles like a dream."

    ELIZABETH M., NJ (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Fuel economy."

    Anonymous, ON (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Great acceleration despite 4 cylinder. Turbo drive is strong"

    Anonymous, TX (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "The combo gas electric give the car lots of zip. The tight handling is more like a sports car than a soft ride Lexus. It is just a matter of preference but we love the car."

    Anonymous, NE (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "I was surprised to find that a hybrid can accelerate without a sense of pushing it at what seems a normal rate. Handling is quick."

    Anonymous, WA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "For a hybrid this car accelerates well particularly in sport mode There really is a difference in performance between the various modes available. You can actually squeal the front tires with this car, not something I really want to do on a regular basis but it's noteworthy. Good handling and maneuverability though ride a bit on the stiff side."

    Francisco P., TX (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Good handling."

    Anonymous, ON (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    Comfort

    Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

    What Owners Say

    "I need a cushion on the driver's seat for my back. The air conditioning is slow to come on in hot weather. The ride is not smooth."

    Anonymous, CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "There is no adjustment of the passenger seat. The angle of the seat is not comfortable for long ride."

    Anonymous, FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Front passenger seat could not be more uncomfortable. The seat tilts up in the front. When my partner drives, I have to sit in the back seat. The depreciation is UNACCEPTABLE I lost $20,000 in 18 months. Worst car deal I have made in my 40 years of driving. This was my first and last Lexus."

    LINDA O., FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Developed a moldy smell in the air conditioning which required several visits to dealer to fix."

    Anonymous, BC (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "The seats, both front and back, are very comfortable. The cockpit is well-designed so all controls are at the driver's fingertips but there is no seat memory - a big minus. I also wish the front passenger seat electronics included the ability to raise it rather than just move back and forth."

    ELIZABETH M., NJ (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Passenger seat is worse than an airplane seat. Cannot sit in it for longer than 15 minutes without pain. Called Lexus they said it is because of the design. Yeah, it sucks."

    Anonymous, OR (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "The car has a significant clunk coming from the headliner and the dealer could not or would not repair it."

    Anonymous, CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "It is a bit noisier than other Non Hybrid Lexus cars I have owned. Specifically, engine noise and tire noise at highway speeds. But overall not so objectionable."

    D N., FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "We wish the passenger seat had the same controls as the driver seat."

    Anonymous, MI (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "I am a short person and the car fits. The seats are comfortable and that doesn't always happen for me in cars. The headrest, in particular, is in the right place and does not push my head out of line. The ride is a bit noisier, but I am also closer to the ground. It is not, however, a rough ride."

    Anonymous, WA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Rear seats no room for people"

    Nancy K., MD (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "foul odor coming from air conditioning system is a serious problem"

    Anonymous, NY (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Seats are well molded to my body,road noise is minor and acceptable and the ride is smooth and comfortable."

    C C., CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Supportive seats,."

    Anonymous, ON (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    Value

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

    What Owners Say

    "I feel this care is overpriced for what you get. can definitely do better."

    MARK F., CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "HORRIBLE VALUE. Only 32 mpg. and the depreciation is horrendous. I paid over $37,000 for this vehicle. 18 months later is is worth $17,000 (average retail to private party), the dealer wants to give me less! OMG. Worst car deal I have made in 40 years of driving. This was my first and LAST Lexus!"

    LINDA O., FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "would prefer to have backup camera and navigation"

    Anonymous, NE (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "It doesn't seem worth the big price difference over the Honda Civic I drove for 12 years."

    Anonymous, CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "For a car in this price range I feel there should be a hatch release on the inside of the car. There is none. The angle of the passenger seat makes it hard to get out. The doors open very wide and when you are in the seat, it is somewhat hard to reach the door to close it. The seat belts are hard to reach when seated."

    Anonymous, FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "Great gas saver and for the price a stylish and elegant little car."

    C C., CA (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    Styling

    How it looks inside and out

    What Owners Say

    "It's a beauty considering it's a Hybrid. And the hatchback is just perfect, the seats lay flat when needed. Interior IS pretty "Tuxedo" 2-tone), but no way it's up to Lexus usual standards"

    BONNIE C., TX (2015 Lexus CT 200h)

    "not a good value for the money you pay"

    Anonymous, FL (2015 Lexus CT 200h)
