When Cars.com reviewer David Thomas critiqued the 2013 Lexus CT 200h, he praised it for its fuel economy, handling and overall coolness, but wondered about the demand for a sporty luxury hybrid compact. Evidently there's enough to freshen up the 3-year-old niche nameplate for the 2014 model year. The 2014 CT 200h will make its world premiere later this month at the 11th China (Guangzhou) International Auto Parts & Accessories Exhibition in Guangzhou, China.
For the new model year, the CT 200h gets the family's spindle grille, newly designed alloy wheels and a revised rear end. No word yet on pricing; the current version starts at nearly $33,000 with destination fee. The automaker will release further details at the Guangzhou show.
