The Lexus CT 200h, the original self-charging hybrid luxury hatchback, has a new line-up for 2019 with new equipment grades and specifications.
The gateway model to the Lexus range has been made simpler for customers to navigate with just three core grades, plus a concise choice of option packs. These follow the same format announced for the forthcoming new UX compact crossover and ES executive saloon.
The entry model is known simply as the CT, joined by the performance-inspired F Sport and, at the top of the range, Takumi. All versions benefit from Lexus Safety System+, featuring Pre-Collision System, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic High Beam and Sway Warning.

2019 Lexus CT 200h: powertrain
The 2019 Lexus CT 200h retains its self-charging hybrid electric powertrain, delivering a smooth, refined drive with excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions. The combination of 1.8-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine and a compact, powerful electric motor/generator produces a maximum output of 134bhp.
Driving through a seamless E-CVT automatic transmission, it returns official combined cycle figures of 64.2mpg and 101g/km (fitted with 17-inch wheels). When operating in EV mode, the CT 200h can be driven for certain distances on its electric power alone, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions to zero.
