First off, let me say that I love this little car! I am a 6'2", 180 pound, 41 year old man... So you know a little of where my points of view are coming from. Lets address the categories that I didn't rank with 5's, first off, performance- performance is pretty good all in all, and particularly in sport mode it reacts quite well... However, make no mistake, this is not a sports car! It is a hybrid that is getting you up to 60 mpg at times. If you want to spin tires and blast 0-60 in 4 seconds you are going to have to rethink buying this car! Second, comfort- I am a fairly big guy and I find this car to be really very comfortable, I have my seat at the furthest and lowest position.

I was lucky and found a 2012 fully loaded with only 6k miles on it for $26k. I love this car, while I have a lead foot, I am only getting 37 to 40mpg...if I am driving like an old lady on a straight road, I might get 40 but I live in san diego, hills everywhere and going up hill, the mileage goes down. I love the handling. this is the perfect combination of sporty, economical, practical, fun. Definitely beats the competition of the other hybrids in $28-35k range!!

This is my 3rd review of the car (Look for older ones for more info). 1st most important thing people will look for in this car - gas mileage. We now put 76k on the clock and we are beating EPA rated numbers. We do more highway driving than city, which according to official numbers should be the lower number. Our lifetime average up to 58k was 43.7mpg. Then I reset it because I finally bought a winter tire set and new oem set, we are at 76k now (18k since reset) and the average is 44mpg and rising. As I mentioned in previous reviews, warmer season mpg will be in 45+ range, it will drop to 40+ during cold months. If you aren't a spirited driver, you will most likely beat epa estimates. I doubt racers will be buying this car anyway. With that said the car handles really really well. I always try to steal it from my wife on weekends to drive around as enjoy well handling cars (i am left with a minivan for my 2 mile commute to train station and that's not fun to drive). I would say that about every big vehicle on the road btw. CT just feels like a road hugger, only lacks acceleration and a stick shift. Second big thing, (technically third since i mentioned handling), the car has been as reliable as it can get. No issues whatsoever. We will be driving this thing until it goes because that's where owning Toyota/Lexus product is the greatest advantage. Their cars are rock solid in reliability and can go long miles. One more thing, we are still on original brake set @76k...wow! I may need to get Focus ST as a third car as I am dying to have a stick shifter and the car that speeds up a bit faster but that's more of weekend car wish than an everyday driver. Back to hybrids, there has been a wave of improved hybrids that hit the market since we bought CT, so choices are better today than in 2012/2013. And despite popular hate on diesels, i love them. Check out BMW 535d (started in 2014) if you can afford it.

Hot hot hybrid

With the F-Sport package this thing's got kind of an upscale eco-friendly bad attitude look to it. And I love the modern wood and leather free interior; it's about time that we start to see some new materials indoors. Power's on the light side, but handling with the sports package is definitely competitive with the Mini's and GTI's of the world. But they don't get forty-something miles per gallon on regular now do they?

Extremely happy with the styling of this car! But most of all I love all the technologies! I like all the bells and whistles and this car has them all. Even my high school age daughter likes this purchase...hoping that it will be her car in couple of years. Very nice car by Lexus!
