Lexus CT 200h Overview

The CT 200h hybrid got a mild freshening, with styling updates and mechanical tweaks said to improve ride comfort and noise levels. This small hatchback has excellent fuel economy, but its refinement isn't up to the Lexus standard. Using the same powertrain as the Prius, the CT's 40-mpg is 4-mpg less than the roomier Toyota. The CT can drive solely on electric power at low speed. Handling is responsive and secure, but the ride is stiff and choppy. The cabin is well-assembled, with quality materials. But the rear seats are tight, cargo capacity is modest, and the rear view is limited. Reliability has been outstanding, but it scored too low in our tests to recommend.
