With the new CT 200h available to order now at your local Lexus Centre, you might be wondering how it compares to other premium hatchbacks available in the UK. Here’s how the numbers stack up against the BMW 118d SE and the Audi A3 2.0 TDI SE.
As the CT 200h will be delivered in 2011, the recently announced official OTR price includes the new rate of VAT at 20%. For comparison purposes, all the prices quoted below are based on the current rate of VAT at 17.5%. All new cars sold in the UK will be subject to 20% VAT from 4 January 2011.

The Lexus CT 200h offers motorists a competitive price advantage when like-for-like specifications are compared. For example, to meet the equipment features of the CT 200h SE-I – the model expected to be the most popular – BMW 118d SE automatic drivers would need to find almost £1,700 extra.
The OTR price isn’t the only good news for CT 200h buyers. As mentioned here, the car outperforms key rivals in terms of CO2 emissions and combined cycle fuel economy, thanks to its Lexus Hybrid Drive system.
