2011 Lexus CT 200h Premium 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Not much "not" to like about this car.
We got the titanium pearl with leather and nav.
Handles beautifully.
Quiet inside and comfortable.
A little tire hum gets inside, but little else.
Sportly looks and sporty handling.
The eco/normal/sport selector is a bit of a gimmick.
The sport mode makes the steering quicker, but as far as acceleration, it just affects how HARD you have to push on the gas pedal to get what you want.
Doesn't seem to matter if we're in the city or on the freeway at 60--consistenly get over 45 mpg.
Tip in city below about 35 mph:
Accelerate moderately up to speed, then back off quickly--flip it into EV (batt) mode and then maintain speed whenever possible.

Best Features

Styling, high mpg in both city and hwy. driving, comfortable leather seating, memory seat and side mirror control settings for three persons, handling, space with rear seats down, control layout and dash appearance, Nav/audio/temperature voice commands, heating and air conditioning system, pop-up/down Nav display (it's great to not have a screen staring at you when you don't want it), sound system, impressive acceleration up to 35 mph. Note to Edmunds: reliability entry in comment should be optional...how can you evaluate a vehicle until you've owned it at least a year ???

Worst Features

Reduce tire road hum (maybe not possible with the superb handling system). Nav. system pretty complex. Some voice commands should be more direct without having to go through hierarchical menu phrases. Nav updates too expensive and require dealer installing via disk ?! Should be able to download yourself much cheaper.
