Lexus CT 200h finance offers and deals

The 2014 CT 200h range is available from £20,995 for the entry level S model, £1,000 less than the outgoing model; elsewhere in the six-strong line-up, on-the-road prices have fallen by as much as £1,500. Business users can purchase the new CT 200h S from just £219 a month, through Lexus Business Drive contract hire*.

As well as an attractive price, the CT 200h has low running costs. CO2 emissions across the range fall below the magic 100g/km barrier, which means owners won’t have to pay VED road tax, and business users will pay the lowest band for benefit-in-kind taxation, at 10 per cent for the first year. Official combined cycle consumption figures are 78.5mpg for the S grade, and 68.9mpg for the other models in the range.

The CT line-up comprises S, SE, Advance, Luxury, F Sport and Premier grades, with each benefiting from new equipment features and options.

Advance models come with parking sensors, heated front seats and the new, fully integrated Lexus Navigation system as standard, while Premier grade cars feature new aluminium scuff plates and LED front fog lamps.

Inside, on board technology has taken a step forward, with the instrument binnacle now available with an integral 4.2-inch TFT screen. This can be linked to the car’s multimedia system and controlled using steering wheel-mounted controls. The second generation Remote Touch Interface controller has been revised with a push-action command switch.

The Lexus Media Display and Lexus Premium Navigation systems have been made easier to operate with better hands-free and voice recognition functions. The display can be operated using a new controller mounted on the centre console.

In a world first, bamboo has been used in the car’s sound system, as part of a range of measures to improve sound quality. Bamboo fibre, plant opal and charcoal are used in an injection moulding process to create the industry’s thinnest loudspeaker diaphragm, giving noticeably better sound reproduction.

There’s a fresh range of insert colours and combinations available for the centre console, while the door panel inserts have been reworked with new a upholstery and stitching design.

Rounding off the changes is a series of dynamic tweaks, which ensure that the 2014 CT 200h is even better to drive than before. The suspension has been revised, the aerodynamics enhanced, and greater noise suppression measures have been taken, ensuring optimal refinement. Furthermore, the hybrid drive system’s transmission control has been remapped to allow a more linear build-up of engine revs.

The revised CT 200h is available to order now,  for deliveries in March.  Further information on the 2014 CT 200h is available on the designated section of the Lexus UK website.

  • Damien Blackburn says:

    New looks are stunning, can’t wait to see and drive the new CT

  • Clive Glover says:

    Good looking as usual does it have reversing camera

    • David Crouch says:

      Hi Clive
      Yes it does if you choose the optional premium navigation, this comes with a rear reversing camera. Hope this helps.

  • IMP says:

    Just had a test drive, and after having a CT for the past 3 years I can confirm that the ride is definitely improved and that the new tweaks have made quite a significantly better driving experience, I have ordered a new one on this basis..

    • David Crouch says:

      Hi IMP
      Thanks for your post and it is great to receive this feedback about the driving experience, particularly as you have been CT owner for the past three years.
      Comments we receive are used to help improve our products in the future, in line with our principles of Kaizen (constant improvement). It would be good to hear what you think when you take delivery of your new CT so please let us know and post again on our Blog.
      Thanks again.

      • IMP says:

        Yes I know all about Kaizen World Class Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement etc.

        As I said the hard suspension is my gripe about the CT I have now, although I have to say I compared it (maybe unfairly) to my previous cars i.e. The Lexus 220 D which I had previously of which was very quiet and comfortable inside the car, and a Honda Accord Automatic before that again that was a lovely car to ride in, so I knew I had to compromise a bit to get the economy and run a smaller car, but hopefully with the new CT I will get the in between compromise that I am looking for..

        • David Crouch says:

          Thanks for your further comments IMP.
          We will welcome your feedback on the new CT.

          • IMP says:

            I have now had the car and am very pleased with it, as I already knew the improvements to the suspension/sound proofing etc. are very good, there is also a better feel to the all round driving experience of this new model, that’s not to say the previous was not good, this is just better, continuous improvement is what it is all about.

            One small gripe is the text messaging facility on the car does not seem to work with the i-phone 5 unless anyone can tell me any different.

          • David Crouch says:

            Hi IMP
            Thanks for your post.
