My test drive of the Lexus CT 200h Hybrid F Sport. It was a great ride. I remember those that wanted a car in that price range really seemed excited about this car. Here is an excerpt from my review:
The Lexus CT 200h Hybrid F Sport electric vehicle is a fun, sporty ride and considered the most youthful of the Lexus fleet. Whether you’re a teenager driving around with your friends or commuting to work, this cost effective, eco-friendly hybrid will get you where you need to go.
Cost Effective and Eco Friendly
Lexus CT 200h F Sport retailed a bit over $30,000 which is the most inexpensive of the brand. It is a cost effective luxury hybrid electric hatchback. In fact, it’s the only hybrid hatchback on the market which was a pleasant site since diversity of product lines for hybrid electric cars is great. When tested, this hatchback hybrid EV F Sport got an average of 45 miles per gallon with highs in the 50’s at certain times throughout the test. The EPA rating is actually 42 mpg but with the test able to get a little more than the EPA rating the car seems more cost effective than the sticker would make you think.
Lexus basically updated CT 200h compact luxury hybrid at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and now full details of the refreshed model have landed; according to Green Car Reports.
It’s disappointing news for anyone hoping for efficiency improvements though, as the 2014 CT 200h features identical economy to the 2013 model.
That means combined efficiency of 42 mpg, with city and highway figures of 43 mpg and 40 mpg respectively. That’s certainly nothing to sniff at, but customers hoping for more will now have to wait for a next-generation model to enjoy any real improvements.
