New Lexus F-Sport CT 200h

20 October 2011

new Lexus GS 450h full hybrid debut

 

 

Lexus has added some extra visual muscle, introduced more top-flight equipment features and sharpened up the handling of its CT 200h full hybrid premium compact model to create the CT 200h F-Sport.

While the new modelís looks are bolder and more attention grabbing, there is no penalty to pay in the combined low emissions, fuel efficiency and low cost of ownership performance that make CT 200h an unmatched proposition in one of the car marketís most competitive segments.

On the outside the CT 200h F-Sport makes its presence known with 17-inch dark-finish alloys, a larger rear spoiler, flared side skirts, a mesh front grille and new aero-styled bumpers front and rear. In the cabin the distinguishing features include an F-Sport steering wheel with a flat bottom section and aluminium pedals and scuff plates.

Adding to the specification of the SE-L grade, the F-Sport gains cruise control, F-Sport black leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric driverís seat adjustment, auto-dimming (electrochromatic) electrically retractable door mirrors and a rear parking camera that links to a display in the rear-view mirror. And if that isnít enough, owners can ramp up the specification with the option of an advanced HDD navigation system combined with Lexusís Remote Touch control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, back guide monitor and 10-speaker audio package. Front and rear parking sensors and a sunroof are also available.

Lexus has tuned the CT 200h F-Sportís suspension for a more engaging drive, and fitted its lateral damping system as standard. Coil spring rates have been changed and the standard Showa shock absorbers replaced with Kayaba dampers that give more sports-oriented performance.

The lateral dampers, unique in the CT 200hís class, help minimise body vibrations, leading to a more linear steering feel and rewarding driving experience, as well as greater comfort for everyone on board.

Headline performance from the new F-Sport matches its CT 200h sister models with a zero-road-tax 94g/km CO2 emissions and 68.9mpg official combined cycle fuel consumption. And, as the only full hybrid in its class, it can run for up to a mile in slow moving traffic on its electric power alone, reducing fuel use and tailpipe emissions to zero.

The new Lexus CT 200h F-Sport is available to order now, with first UK deliveries in January. On-the-road prices are from £27,850.
