The Lexus CT Hybrid possesses a plush cabin, a quiet electric motor and comes laden with plenty of useful technology. This smart-looking hybrid hatchback is also very cost-effective to run.
The five-door CT Hybrid boasts a number of eye-catching features, such as 15-inch alloy wheels and a shark-fin antenna. Labour-saving fixtures include body-coloured electrically adjustable, folding and heated door mirrors, which feature integrated indicators. Further illumination includes LED daytime running lights, LED rear combination lights and an LED-lit rear license plate.
An illuminated entry system ensures simple and safe access to the CT Hybrid. Inside the five-person cabin, front-row travellers are provided with adjustable seating. The driver also benefits from a multi-adjustable three-spoke steering wheel. The latter is leather-wrapped, as is the vehicle’s gearshift lever, which also features a chrome inlay. Whenever you’re ready to start your journey, engine ignition is achieved with the simple press of a button.
Also included are electrically powered front and rear windows and automatic dual-zone climate control. With all seats up, boot capacity stands at 375 litres; with rear seats folded this rises to 985 litres.
A 1.8-litre petrol-electric engine, paired with continuously variable transmission, enables the vehicle to go from 0-60mph in a little over ten seconds. It also returns as much as 69mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 94g/km. There are four selectable drive modes too: Eco, Normal, Sport and EV.
The vehicle’s six-speaker sound system includes DAB radio, a CD player and an AM/FM tuner. Also featured are a seven-inch colour display (which can be operated using an intuitive remote rotary dial), Bluetooth connectivity, USB and AUX ports and voice command for smartphones. Multimedia controls are also conveniently mounted on the vehicle’s steering wheel, enabling safe operation when driving.
The CT200h comes with Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash-test rating. Driver aids include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist Control and Tyre Pressure Warning System. Seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, seatbelt reminders, eight airbags, ISOFIX attachments and whiplash-minimising front headrests are among a range of passive safety elements featured.
