It looks like Lexus has taken it upon themselves to attract a new market by introducing the 2012 Lexus CT into the market. The hatchback look kind of reminded me of a lexus crossed with a mazda 3. Do not misunderstand because that similarity is all that is has in common with a Mazda. The thing that Lexus understands is that they will need to improve their fleet and customer base. I was a big fan of how the car looked it’s sleek style was definitely an eye catcher for me.
UNDER THE HOOD
It’s powered by a 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol engine alongside an electric motor and together they develop 134bhp – similar to the power from a BMW 116i. The hybrid system is incredibly clever and can operate in petrol and electric modes alone as well as a combination of both. As a result it’s incredibly efficient and according to the official figures it can average 68.9mpg with CO2 emissions of just 94g/km. Not only does this mean it’s free to tax but it’s also exempt from the central London congestion charge, as well as being cheap as a company car.
One of the first things that I noticed about the 200h was the fact that the trunk entrance is kind of small. and in fact there was not much trunk room available. that is not just a factor found in the trunk. For the taller drivers there won’t be that much room available to you guys. I was a little bit disapointed by the fact that the the technology interactive aspect was not there. One of my favorite things to do when I first sit down in a new car is to interacting with it and seeing how easy it is to get to know the ins out and how the car functions.
The lexus 200h is a simple car. If your looking to get into a Lexus without paying an arm and a leg then you might want to take a look at the 200h. The hybrid function will go a long way for you. it will not be long before you start to to notice the fact that you are saving money on gas. With it being on the lower end of the price range you can get into a Lexus without breaking the bank.
