The new Lexus CT 200h, Lexus’s first five-door compact car, is the first full hybrid vehicle to be launched in a premium compact segment. Designed and developed with the European market in mind, this full hybrid model will present a new gateway to the Lexus range and attract new, younger customers to the brand.
Lexus CT 200h is built on a new platform with a dedicated double wishbone and trailing arm rear suspension system. It is then supported with developed coil springs and shock absorbers which are positioned separately, and a new developed front anti-roll bar. For Hybrid Drive system, the CT 200h combines a 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol engine with a powerful electric motor. Drivers have the choice of four selectable drive modes: ECO and NORMAL place.
In the interior, Lexus has retained the asymmetrical dashboard design seen in the LF-Ch show car. Based on the Future Lexus interior concept, the dashboard is split into an upper Display Zone, with an eight-inch LCD multi-display screen; and a lower Operation Zone, with the shift lever and other controls such as Lexus’s Remote Touch multi-function controller.
