The CT 200h shows standard Lexus styling language in compact form, with a much smaller grille than found on other models. LED running lights give the CT 200h a distinct look at night. The F Sport package adds an aggressive front air dam.
The hybrid power train in the CT 200h is essentially the same as in the Toyota Prius, with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine complemented by an electric drive system. It makes a total of 134 horsepower. With the CT 200h's heavier weight and inferior aerodynamics, it gets worse fuel economy and slower acceleration than the Prius.
The F Sport package means a lower and more sport-tuned suspension, but Lexus does not sacrifice much in the way of ride comfort. The CT 200h feels like it would handle very well if it had the on-demand power necessary for fast driving.
