If a Prius customer went crazy with the options they could easily end up north of £25,000 for their The problem for Toyota has been the average buyer of a 70mpg Prius is about as likely to go crazy as Charlie Sheen is to down and become a librarian.

sensible and environmentally aware customers declining the plusher could giving the advanced technology a Lexus makeover more to take the plunge? the same advanced 1.8-litre hybrid powertrain as the Prius, what the CT200h was conceived to out.

The car bridges the gap between the Prius and the larger Lexus but it also gives Lexus a in the increasingly profitable premium sector. The BMW 1 Series and Audi A3 are of a sort but with its petrol/electric powertrain, the CT200h offers different.

It’s attractively priced at £24,000 but the range extends £30,000 to the fully loaded Premier model. Even the SE-I car comes well-equipped an abundance of safety kit (including airbags), tinted glass, connectivity and the standard E-CVT gearbox.

Is it for you?

says that the CT200h bring a new, younger group to the brand and that be both discerning and environmentally Does that sound you? Could this be next car?

That’s the big It’s easy to imagine the gaining sales from who find the Prius a little or find the Lexus RX450h and hybrids are a bit on the bulky side but cannibalising customers from in-house hybrid products is no for success.

The CT200h will need to new blood to the Lexus fold, people who were considering premium hatchbacks. So is it good

Being the only hybrid in the has to be an advantage and the resulting 94g/km CO2 will cut a lot of ice with heavily company car drivers but diesel of the A3 and 1 Series aren’t a million away on environmental-friendliness.

This is a so we should be able to put a few things in the right at the outset. It might be a proportioned hatchback but having the familiar L badge on the nose, you climb in expecting lots of and equipment accompanied by very noise.

The CT200h delivers too. If you find a surface in the immaculately cabin that wasn’t in leather or soft-touch plastic and you a pin on it, you’d probably be able to it. Such is the hushed manner the car goes about its business, at low speeds.

Despite the lack of being generated and its strong the hybrid powertrain steps off the line in Normal mode. The settings are Eco and Sport, the former the car’s responses in the name of economy, the latter changing the mapping and increasing the steering We found Normal worked in everyday driving.

LEXUS CT200h

The 1 Series and A3 proven that sporty in the premium hatchback sector but you really call the CT200h

It feels weighty and substantial on the an impression which may be traceable to the well-weighted but numb steering the CT200h isn’t actually any than a Prius, or an equivalent 1 Series.

The car turns into accurately and through them a lot of composure without really you feel it would be fun to go a bit faster. The is smooth on good surfaces but the suspension makes things a choppy on the average back

If you try to push the CT200h outside its comfort zone, it isn’t as impressive. The throttle has an all-or-nothing so you’re either whispering surprising the pigeons or giving it the potatoes, at which point the can sound quite harsh. easy to end up using bursts of pedal to maintain speed than gently modulating it for a cruise.

What’s it like to with?

Overall, living the CT200h requires very few The hybrid powertrain is well to the extent that boot (375 litres) is competitive for the Rear legroom isn’t but this isn’t exactly a of other models in the premium class and the seats themselves are and extremely comfortable.

The important-looking dial the dominates the centre seems excessive just for the drivetrain between Eco, and Sport modes while the system is governed by a rather mouse controller when Toyota models have the navigation software controlled via a touchscreen. The gearbox selector is a bit odd a curved, chromed handle looks as if a tug on it could leave you an integrated umbrella rather putting the car in reverse.

How green is it?

Lexus isn’t to do things a bit differently and the CT200h is yet proof of that. The refined powertrain and classy, well-equipped give the car a relaxed style slightly at odds with the focus across the rest of the hatchback sector.
