My wife and I were looking to get a more efficient vehicle since most of our driving is within 5 miles of our house. We quickly found out in our research that the CT 200h ticked every box on our list: gas mileage, looks, build quality, reliability, comfort, and gadgets.
For around $36,000 fully loaded, it's actually priced very reasonably considering it's from a luxury brand.
Most reviews knock the car for its performance, which is odd since this is a hybrid. I was actually surprised to find power more than adequate for going up hills and merging. Handling is where this car shines - steering is tight and the car is very fun to drive.
Rear seats are a bit tight but they are comfortable.
Gas mileage, navigation system and hands-free control, sound system, dashboard design, seat comfort, keyless access with automatic lighting as you approach the car (interior lights and lights under mirrors)
Arm rest on door is very low and uncomfortable to use, power passenger seat should be standard, LED headlamps should be standard, rear cup holders and door storage is lacking
