Review Summary
Hybrid Lexus CT 200h hatchback gets a raft of upgrades, and is better to drive as a result.

Review Summary
The CT 200h combines the low running costs of the mechanically similar Toyota Prius and Auris Hybrid with more adventurous styling and a less mainstream badge.

Review Summary
The CT200h ploughs a distinct furrow in that it aims to achieve very high emissions and economy performance with less emphasis on a sporting driving experience.

Review Summary
Improved (a bit) and better riding on 16in wheels, but the smallest Lexus hybrid still feels too much like a posh Prius – and it still isn't a sporting hybrid, whatever the adverts tell you

Review Summary
While the handling is sharp and precise it’s let down by a lifeless drive and then there’s the petrol and electric hybrid engine, which is a little sluggish and unresponsive.

Review Summary
Lexus has produced a car attempting to be sporty and luxurious, but has achieved neither.

Review Summary
The Lexus CT 200h is cheap to run, but delivers neither the sporty performance nor the comfort we expect from this brand.

Review Summary
The biggest issue, however, is the harsh ride. Even in entry-level S trim, which comes with small 15-inch wheels, the ride is choppy around town.

Review Summary
To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.
