Most stylish hybrid around!

This car is the perfect blend of reliability, wicked good gas mileage (average 49.6 mpg combined), cargo space, and style. I am often asked about it in public. Toyota reliability with comfort upgrades. No regrets!


The best value in its class

First off it is a hybrid which is great! I never thought I would own one either. The car uses regular unleaded gasoline. It has 3 modes for driving: Eco, normal, and sport. Eco is beneficial for stop and go traffic, normal is best for consistent speeds, and sport is self explanatory. Side note sport mode changes the suspension, steering, and throttle response. It's not a super fast car but it is a whole bunch of fun to drive and has a great sporty feel. When looking at how comfortable the vehicle is, I am a 6ft 2in tall male that weights close to 200 pounds lean. I have more than enough leg room and the side bolstering of the seats hug just right. The CT200H 8 own is fully loaded and everything is top quality with no issues, you can really tell that Lexus out the time and research into the development of the vehicle. Overall it is in my eyes the best value in its class.


My Goldilocks Car

After trying Honda, Hyundai, Mini, and others, this car is hands down the most reliable, enjoyable car I've owned. I am entirely sold on this model and will purchase another one in the near future.


Great little car with amazing gas mileage!

It has been a great car, Lexus never disappoints. I am still getting 45 mpg and I have had it since 2013. I have realized that I can keep it in sport mode for the extra pep and handling and still get the great gas mileage.


Love this car!

If you are a hybrid driver this is a great car, really comfortable, nice ride, great sound system, like the styling on the interior. Great car!! If you know how to drive hybrids this one gets 46 mpg.


My current car

i love it, but i like to have new cars bc im materialistic. so i need 2017 not 2013 . so i am in search of a new car right now!


Great mileage around town

I've owned the car for 18 months. Never less than 45mpg. Around town city driving, if I watch it always obtain 50 mpg or better. I love the eco/normal/sport driving modes. The sport mode shaves about 2 secs off the 0-60 time over the Prius, even though the hybrid drive trains are identical, I have the premium 10 speaker sound and amp. I upgraded the dash and front door speakers, and now the stereo is nothing short of assume. I would have updated the sub-woofer, but I did not want to lose any hatch or trunk space, and upgrading the stock unit requires removal of 90% of the rear interior.


Overall, Great Car

Exterior: I absolutely love the look of this car. It's sporty with a touch of elegance. The car sits low to the ground. Interior: The interior design is nice. I have a slight issue with every seat on the car. It's on the smaller side. The diver's side is smaller and you can't really stretch at all. The passenger seat is manual. The rear seats are tight. The right rear seat gets the vent for the battery and makes a slight noise but barely noticeable. The trunk is tiny but manageable. Speed and MPG: This car is on the sluggish side. Not much of an issue for me, but maybe for some. The mileage on this is great. I average out around 43 MPG. Noise: It's quite loud on the highway but on normal streets at average speeds, the car is quieter. When you're driving the car and hit the brakes and come to a complete stop the car is dead silent. Overall: This is a great car. If you're looking for a good car to ride around in town, has great style and MPG, but don't care about size or speed, then this is the one for you.


Great car

After a year of ownership, I am very happy with the car. The interior is nice, and seats our family of four. I am 5'11 and I fit comfortably in the driver seat and behind the driver without adjusting the seat. Average MPG so far has been 46, both on highway and in the city. The only complaint is that the car is a little bit sluggish, unless pushed to the floor. I don't care for 0-60, but 160HP would have probably provided the perfect balance between efficiency and effortless driving.


Down sized from RX to CT

Needed a commuter car with better gas mileage. The RX330 was 10 yrs old and running VERY GOOD. The CT hybrid is a dramatic difference in vehicles but I am loving it. 46 MPG combined; plenty of muscle; great stereo and bluetooth tech. The seats are smaller and less plush than the RX, the center console is high but comfortable. I'm a little worried I will miss the AWD cause the RX did everything flawlessly, but the FWD and Traction control should compensate. So far; awesome vehicle!
