2015 Lexus CT 200h: High-end Hybrid

Published on June 30 2015

As the world’s first luxury hybrid, the Lexus CT 200h has had some serious expectations to meet, and it’s met them all with confidence and kept its rank as the high-end hybrid winner.

The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is both fuel-efficient and luxurious with a sporty nature despite its hybrid engine. Sporting the Lexus spindle-grille shape up front, and the signature and unique hatchback design that helps set the 200h apart from the competition even more, the Lexus CT is a looker.

Add on the F SPORT package and it skyrockets to an entirely new level of awesomeness in terms of exterior aesthetics, as well as performance bits and bobs you might not expect to find on a hybrid like increased handling ability with a race-inspired steering wheel and steering set-up along with sport-tuned suspension that includes front and rear lateral performance dampers. Yes, on a hybrid. 

Of course, the most intriguing and important part about the 2015 Lexus CT 200h is its fuel efficiency. Equipped with a Lexus Hybrid Drive engine (a combination of a 1.8L 4-cylinder VVT-i Atkinson Cycle Engine and an electric motor) that produces a net horsepower of 134, the CT 200h will return fuel ratings in the 5.5L/100km (city) and 5.9L/100km (highway) range. That’s impressive for a vehicle that also seats five and has approximately 850 litres of cargo space in the trunk. Power is sent to the front wheels, and there are even drive modes to sift through, one of which is Sport for an invigorating drive that even turns the gauge cluster red and brings up a tachometer for truly sporty driving in the 2015 Lexus CT 200h.

Inside the 2015 Lexus CT 200h you’ll find a luxurious, welcoming cabin that includes Lexus’ Remote Touch HMI system that features an innovative and futuristic trackpad system to control the dash-mounted screen. There’s also satellite radio, navigation, available back-up camera, USB ports, Bluetooth, and a host of steering-wheel mounted buttons to make your life that much easier when you’re behind the wheel of the Lexus CT 200h.

The idea of a fun-to-drive hybrid seems a bit of an anomaly, but Lexus has done it with the CT 200h model. They’ve proven that style, luxury, and performance can also be fuel efficient. And with such a stellar starting price and great trim levels to choose from (most notably the F SPORT version that truly turns the CT 200h into a bit of a sleeper in hybrid guise), the 2015 Lexus CT 200h might just be the best luxury hybrid out there.
