The Lexus CT is an excellent hatchback with an impressive interior and high reliability levels. It's also a cheap car to drive.
While the Lexus CT is only available as a hybrid, it utilises a 1.8 litre petrol engine which is coupled to an 81bhp electric motor to deliver low running costs. Drivers should expect real world economy of 74 mpg with emissions of 87g/km. The CT will go from 0 to 62 mph in just over 10 seconds. Indeed, it was the world's first full hybrid luxury hatchback and when running on electricity alone, the CT is virtually silent.
The interior for the Lexus CT is very comfortable and well designed, it is on a par with the rest of the Lexus luxury offering and overall, the CT feels solid and safe to drive. The petrol engine offers more agility than drivers will be expecting and there’s a wide range of spec levels. The suspension is quite stiff which helps underpin its sporty handling and responsive drive. The handling around town is comfortable and it's a good performer with a firm grip of the road. There's plenty of space on board too for four adults to sit in comfort though boot space is compromised by the batteries so it's just 375litres in size - though with the rear seats folded down, this will increase to 985litres.
Being a Lexus, the list of standard equipment is quite long and includes alloy wheels, rain sensing wipers, LED headlights and tail lights, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and dual zone climate control. Other models come with satnav, body kit, sports suspension, black leather upholstery, aluminium scuff plates and a reversing camera. There's also a decent options list which includes adaptive cruise control, black alloy wheels and a sunroof. Essentially, the Lexus CT 200h is a luxury offering and the interior reflects that with excellent handling and a quiet drive, the CT makes for an impressive hybrid car choice.
