Lexus first talking up the possibility of a sportier, aggressive hybrid luxury two years ago, when trademarked CT300h and CT400h to go with their then-new hybrid luxo-hatch. We may not have the 300 HP, V8-engined super hybrid the 400h moniker suggested (or Acura, clearly, expected ), but we have instead might be Welcome, then, the new-for-2014 CT200h F Sport hybrid.

The new CT200h is just what the old one in some ways. It s practical, to its 4-door hatchback layout and easy-to-park overhangs. It s fuel and green, giving back than 40 MPG with ultra-low according to the EPA.
