The 2013 Lexus CT 200h is, quite literally, in a class of its own. It’s the sole compact luxury hybrid hatchback on the market. A review by The Car Connection describes the CT as a “sporty hot-hatch”. If you’re a seasoned Prius owner looking for a bit more refinement or a speed-loving techie who wants great mileage, consider a used Lexus CT 200h for your next hybrid car.
The CT 200h runs through the combined efforts of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder 98-horsepower engine and the Hybrid Synergy Drive system. Between the two of them, they deliver a phenomenal fuel economy of 42 mpg combined. But driving the CT grants you more than EPA approval. You’re also bound to have a healthy dose of fun, thanks to the Sport mode which provides partial throttle and full electric assist.
The interior is surprisingly spacious and front seat passengers will have no complaints in terms of comfort. The back row can be folded down completely to create a capacious cargo area, fit for epic supermarket runs or romantic weekend camping trips.
Features for music aficionados include SiriusXM satellite radio, integrated iPod control, and Bluetooth audio streaming. Other standard tech features include keyless ignition, Lexus Safety Connect, and hands-free voice commands. You can also opt for rain-sensing wipers, LED headlamps, and the highly lauded Lexus Enform real-time information and navigation system.
It sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? Come see the very real and very fantastic Lexus CT 200h for yourself at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington. You can also check out our complete used Lexus inventory online right now.
