Ten Second Review
Lexus CT200h Lease Review - Even in a breed of unique and impressive vehicles, the Lexus CT200h luxury hybrid hatchback stands out among its peers, not least because it's the first hybrid compact premium car. 134bhp may not seem like a very impressive figure in the grand scheme of things, taking the car's esteem and size into account, but the fuel economy more than makes up for it. According to Lexus, the car can manage 68.9MPG, better even than some of the cheaper, more economy orientated ranges on the market. Top C02 emissions of 88km/hr means that road tax is a worry of the past
When it comes to speed, the model isn't quite so extraordinary. It can manage up to 180mph, which is just about what you'd expect in a car of this stature, and it can reach 60mph in a fairly bogstandard 10.3 seconds.
There are 4 models in the range- Eco, Comfort, Sport and Executive. All of them essentially look alike, apart from the Sport which has some gentle touch-ups to the bumpers, grille and wheels. As the name suggests, each are wired for a specific kind of driver- the eco geek, the guy who sleeps in his car most nights, the ones that think they're Lewis Hamilton, and the fancy pants. Overall, though, there's not much difference between the four perhaps maybe economy and price, so you might as well just toss a coin and see what it lands on.
The CT200h from Lexus has been dubbed the world's first full hybrid luxury compact vehicle. Similar to the Audi A3 this Lexus model is a more environmentally friendly way to travel in style and comfort. The emission levels of this vehicle have been reduced to only 87g/km which soars it ahead of most diesel engines targeting the carbon conscious business traveller. It's comfortable, stylish and has the professional touch that Lexus is so good at creating. When you can have all this and reduce your impact on the planet the offering gets much more tempting.
