Lexus CT 200h Studio



A new, more comfortable and refined Lexus CT 200h will be launched in the UK and Europe in March next year.

The full hybrid luxury hatchback has undergone a raft of changes that improve its styling and quality inside and out, raise comfort levels and deliver greater refinement. Equipment specifications have been raised and the F Sport model has been given a stronger individual identity within the range.

Lexus’s signature spindle grille provides a strong focus for the CT 200h’s refreshed styling. It has been reworked with the centre horizontal line pushed further forward with its “pinch-point” set lower down. The bottom corners of the spindle shape are also spaced further apart, adding to the overall effect of reinforcing the car’s low front profile and wide track.

New 10-spoke 16 and 17-inch alloy wheels have been introduced together with a shark’s fin roof antenna. At the rear the new-look bumper has stronger horizontal lines and incorporates distinctive L-shaped reflectors and a black lower centre section.

A revised range of paint colours will be available, all benefiting from a scratch-resistant, self-restoring top coat.

Changes to the CT 200h’s interior have been made to deliver greater comfort, higher equipment levels and better all-round quality in the look and feel of the cabin.

Details of specific UK trim and equipment features will be announced in January.

Lexus has achieved significant reductions in emissions from the 2014 CT 200h, taking CO2 output down by 5g/km to just 82g/km for the entry level S grade model fitted with 15-inch wheels. For versions equipped with optional 16-inch wheels the official figure has been reduced by 6g/km to 88g/km.
