Reviews the 2013 Lexus CT 200h


The market hasn't been very kind to luxury hybrids, but Lexus should have no trouble making a sales case for its charming CT 200h. The compact hatchback continues to be a fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient hybrid, and an updated grille and athletic F Sport model keep the hatchback fresh for 2013, says reviewer David Thomas.

2013 Lexus CT 200h Review



The LED running lights really bother me because there is no light under the projector beam headlight. It always looks like a LED bulb is missing.

Why should be thanked for any review other than one they feel is based just on the car's true attributes? Fuel economy should be mentioned, and considered, but shouldn't color the review otherwise. Of course, I know the poster is just an ad for a law firm, but there comments would make me feel uneasy about using them to represent me at trial, too.


This is a charitable review. The build quality of the CT 200h is impeccable, it does have tight handling and the seats are very comfortable. In every other respect, including price, the stock Prius liftback is a superior vehicle, with noticeably more interior room, a much more comfortable ride, more cargo room, all for 10K less.


I wouldn't be caught dead in a Prius for shallow personal reasons, but I would actually take one of these for a test drive. I suspect that I would go with another option for the price, but I believe this is one of the most stylish and appealing offerings from Lexus


One of the most sexy hatchback ever to me. I was crazy for the BMW 1 Series before but after the born of the CT i changed my mind: Luxurious, stylish, super efficient and yet fun to drive. Not to mention the usual Lexus reliability and the fact that the mainteinance cost over 40% less than any compact diesel in Europe (i live in Italy).


I recently bought one of these. AWESOME car! Looks great. Comfortable. Great gas mileage. The "Sport" mode gives me the pep I want. Like another mentioned, I wouldn't be caught dead in a Prius. No comparison in the look of a Prius versus the look of a CT 200h. In my opinion, a great value.


Mine just broke while driving. I am just glad nobody got hurt. Found out about this as we were looking for the part. Called Ford, it isn't on the recall list. I have a 2005 Ford Focus.
