Whatever your wants, needs or personality – there’s a Lexus CT 200h for you. We compare the defining features of the racy F Sport model – pictured on the left in Fuji Red – and the all-rounder Advance grade, which offers luxury equipment and a premium level of quality, for a low price.
CT 200h F Sport, £26,745* / from £234.20 p/m (personal user)
The F Sport features a sporty honeycomb grille and the fog lamp housings feature the same pattern. In profile, the model benefits from 10-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone, machined-face finish, while at the rear, there is a tailgate-mounted spoiler that is distinguished by cut-out sections which help generate extra downforce.
Nine exterior colours are available: Velvet Black, Fuji Red, Obsidian Black, F Sport White, Mercury Grey, Mesa Red, Satin Silver, Solar Yellow and Ultra Blue.
Inside, sports seats feature as standard and are available in a choice of black or dark rose coloured leather. Other distinctive features include aluminium pedals and scuff plates, a perforated leather steering wheel trim, dimpled leather gear shift finish and F Sport badging.
Under the skin, front and rear lateral performance dampers feature. These are designed to absorb and minimise body vibrations and give a more linear steering feel – they also provide excellent ride comfort.
CT 200h Advance, £23,995* / from £142.83 p/m (personal user)
The Advance grade sits firmly in the middle of the CT 200h range – above S and SE models, on par with Luxury and below F Sport and Premier grades.
Priced at £23,995, it boasts an impressive standard equipment list that includes front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats and a state-of-the-art Lexus Navigation system. The latter is an option on the Luxury and F Sport models.
Building on the already generous specification of the S and SE models, the Advance boasts cruise control, smart entry, 17-inch alloys and rear privacy glass.
Thanks to the fitment of an efficient hybrid powertrain, both the Advance and F Sport models return up to 68.9mpg on the combined cycle and emit just 94g Co2/km, making them exempt from VED road tax.
