The 2017 Lexus CT 200h excels in, however, is delivering excellent real-world fuel efficiency, a smooth ride and a pleasant interior. As a hatchback, it also gets high marks for versatility, though cargo capacity isn’t as generous as expected. Staying grounded has never been this thrilling. While every CT connects you to the road with low-set bolstered sport seats. And a low hood for optimum visibility, the CT F SPORT offers exclusive enhancements.
2017 Lexus CT 200h Performance
2017 Lexus CT 200h is propelled by a hybrid system that is made up of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. Pair of electric motor/generators powered by a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. Total output is 134 horsepower, which is routed to the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
A CVT handles getting that power from the engine to the front wheels. The CT 200h only has 3,100 pounds to haul around, but 60 mph arrives in a leisurely 10 seconds, and the quoted top speed is only 113 mph. The big bonus of all those batteries and that tiny engine is great fuel economy. I spent most of my time under the 39 mpg mark; a disappointment considering how good my fuel economy.
2017 Lexus CT 200h Interior
Including available Black leather trim with white perforations, a perforated leather–trimmed shift knob and an LFA-inspired steering wheel. With a greater emphasis on environmental friendliness than traditional luxury, the 2017 CT 200h lacks the opulence expected from a premium brand. You’ll find recycled and sustainably sourced materials that replace the typical leather and wood trim whenever practical.
Audio and Navigation systems is one of the more puzzling interfaces available. The operator moves a small flat joystick pad to move a cursor on the central display, but in a moving vehicle this setup proves problematic. A haptic feedback feature simulates detents when rolling over screen sections. Its front seats provide a pleasing blend of cushioned comfort and sporty lateral support, and the rear seats have enough head- and legroom for two adults. The rear doors are rather narrow, but access is still much better than in a typical two-door coupe.
