Another Hit From Lexus
By mike995134 on


2012 Lexus CT 200h Premium 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


WOW-WOW-WOW ... what an amazing car!!! It's not at all sluggish as has been written by some.
Of course it doesn't do 0-60 in 4 seconds ... but we have not had any problems merging onto the freeway or climbing up hills.
The Normal Mode is fine for this, but for a little extra oomph, just kick it over to Sport Mode and this thing moves.
The ergonomics are great.
We traded an Infiniti EX35 for the CT, so it is a tad smaller ... but no worries, we can still carry people, our pets and haul other stuff as needed without any problems.
And of course, we absolutely love the fuel economy too.
42+ mpg is the norm for our combined city-freeway driving thus far. How awesome is that!!!

Best Features

Love the lay out of the cockpit ... everything falls right-to-hand, and it just "feels" right. Running in "stealth" mode (EV only) is fun at times. One can drive without any engine noise, and without burning any gas. Comes in handy when crawling through parking lots-garages and in other bumper-to-bumper traffic situations. And then there is the usual top-notch Lexus fit-and-finish and attention to detail.

Worst Features

There are a few things that we'd like to see for CT220h V2 .... (1) power seat for the front passenger (2) center arm-rest & cup holders for the rear passenger area (3) more color choices for the leather interior option ... come-on Lexus, there are more colors out there other than black and light gray ... how about some colors that pop like red :>)
