The 2015 Lexus CT manages to carve out an attractive niche in the luxury segment. The compact hatchback offers attractive styling, upscale amenities and excellent fuel efficiency. Though its cargo capacity is on the low end among its peers, it offers more versatility than a typical sedan.
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h seats five. It comes in one trim level. Under the hood is a four-cylinder gasoline engine paired with an electric motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive are standard.
There are no major changes for the 2015 model year.
If you thought the 2015 Lexus CT looked a bit like the Toyota Prius, you’d be right. Among the distinguishing design elements up front are the marque’s “spindle” grille, winged headlights and pronounced wheel arches. Deep creases in the sheet metal and a rear spoiler are among the vehicle’s other muscular touches. At the back, tapered taillights and a wraparound window add unique elements.
Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, automatic headlights and heated mirrors with built-in turn signals and puddle lamps. Among the options are LED headlights and automatic windshield wipers. The F Sport package brings touches such as different 17-inch alloy wheels and a bigger rear spoiler.
Functionality seems to be the top priority in the cabin of the 2015 CT 200h. While there are a number of high-quality materials inside, the overall look is simplistic and uncluttered. A wide center stack features a number of buttons and knobs in a unique arrangement that likely will take time to learn. The seats are supportive yet comfortable, and headroom and legroom are fine, even in the backseat. The battery pack, lodged beneath the load floor, really cuts into storage space. There’s just 14.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the split-folding rear seats and 34.8 cubic feet total.
Among the standard equipment are dual-zone automatic climate control, leatherette upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. The list of optional amenities includes heated front seats, a four-way power front passenger seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather upholstery.
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is fitted with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine matched with an electric motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery. It makes a combined 134 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. A CVT routes power to the front wheels.
Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 43/40 mpg city/highway.
While the CT 200h is a capable companion on the highway and country roads, some competitors provide brisker acceleration. It does, however, offer nimble handling, precise steering, enthusiastic cornering and effortless shifting between the engine and electric motor. Its ride is surprisingly smooth for a compact vehicle.
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h gets a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and a USB/iPod interface. Also standard are Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and Siri Eyes Free technology. Available infotainment and safety options include a 10-speaker sound system, a 7-inch display screen, a six-disc CD changer, a rearview camera, voice-controlled navigation system, HD Radio, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and Lexus’ Enform telematics systems.
