Autoinfomotive – 2016 Lexus CT 200h Specs. With the release of the new 2016 Lexus CT 200h does not bring anything particularly new to the lineup, but in fact it comes back with a unique blend of fuel economy and sporty character which the car did not have before. The new sport feel to the car is certainly going to attract a larger crowd and bring larger interest for the new CT 200h car while the fuel economy specs are already as sound as you would expect from a typical hatchback hybrid car.
This vehicle is actually the smallest and the least priciest car in the Lexus lineup. It provides an opportunity for the younger crowd who are looking for their first Lexus car and who want to start from small. Not to underestimate the car at all, it has a fairly versatile use and can be used by all types of people as well. People who like the Prius, but seek a little bit more luxury will find that the Lexus CT 200h is a perfect choice, as it has a better and luxurious package than the aforementioned car.
The Lexus CT is currently the only hatchback hybrid car on the market, and will remain so until Audi manages to launch their own 2016 A3 version which has been announced but is currently delayed. The 2016 model of the Lexus CT is going to be the sixth model that Lexus has managed to produce and its next-gen vehicle will include a much larger update than this one. It is being offered as a five-door hatchback but there are some rumors that the future models will feature a four door setup. Now without further ado, here is the review for the upcoming Lexus CT 200h vehicle.
2016 Lexus CT 200h Concept
The exterior part has not suffered a big change and the new 2016 model of the Lexus CT 200h enters into its sixth model pretty much unchanged. It retains the look that it has always had and only incorporates some minor changes that update the car for the new model year. The last big change happened on the front end of the car a few years ago when the trademark Lexus spindle grille was added, but this time we will see that part enhanced with some chrome that was added at the sides. But nevertheless, the exterior shape of the car is very handsome and pretty straightforward without any drastic experimentation on that part.
Generally speaking the car has a low roof with slab sides and thick pillars and comes as a five-door hatch. The smoothly curved lines are very appropriate for the gently arced back pillars. In in fact results in slightly aggressive shape than before, but only in a small sense not too overtly. The rear window actually has an unusual appearance but goes in very well with the rear pillars and the long spoiler that extends the roof line. The taillights have been changed as well and have a thinner look to them. There is also a multitude of choices when it comes to the exterior color as there are some new options available. The sparkly Daybreak Yellow Mica and Matador Red Mica tones or the new Starfire Pearl and Tungsten Pearl shades are new color specters with the already available silver, charcoal, and black that are a standard feature for nay luxury model.
The inside part of the vehicle is pretty straightforward as well and features some luxurious materials that are found on the dashboard as well. The design of the inside of the newest Lexus CT 200h has been designed to follow the look that has been imposed by the exterior of the car. There are some plastic parts added to the car’s interior, but they are very appropriately added. The combined look makes it for quite a luxurious setting and provide a very nice feel to the passengers and the driver as well.
This Lexus model also provides more style on the inside and has a better look that most of the cars in the Lexus lineup. With a new two-tone interior color pattern it gives us a much higher interior look with high amounts of luxury and a better atmosphere. On the inside you can modernize your vehicle by adding ash burl, bamboo, or black wood trim, or silver metal trim if you want to and thus make your car a bit more personal looking and add a higher luxury level to it. The car retains its digital screens which have been introduced with the recent models but this model also gets a new steering wheel which accounts for much better handling of the vehicle. There are also some finer additions that include, for instance, the scuff plates which are changed from plastic ones to metal ones and bring a higher luxury level that way.
The powertrain of the Lexus CT 200h vehicle has remained unchanged from its debut and so will the 2016 model continue with this tradition. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine will be used, with the output of 98-horswpeor, and will be combined with a Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive system. This is actually the same kind of a powertrain that is found in a Prius vehicle but in this case it is being used by a smaller and more refined vehicle. There is a pair of motor generators that can power the car on its own without any problems, but only at low speeds. This setup is good enough to provide great fuel economy and has an EPA rating of 42 mpg.
2016 Lexus CT 200h Price
