strong but does not hold great reviews in its favor. Under its
hood comes a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine and two electric
motors that collectively generate an outcome of 134 hp and 105
pound feet of torque. This comes coupled with front wheel drive
and CVT automatic transmission. The primary purpose of the
vehicle is to deliver the best possible fuel economy in the
luxury car segment and hence, the CT 200h makes the Lexus proud
by delivering 43 mpg in the city, 40 mpg on the highways and 42
mpg combined. There are three selectable driving modes – Eco,
Normal and Sport, where Sport mode provides an impressive ride
experience but compromises slightly on the fuel economy
numerics.

2017 Lexus CT 200h Interiors

reviews. It is considered to be subtle through some designing
and premium through some features. Undoubtedly the Lexus CT
200h offers good comfort and support along with enormous head
room and leg room, but the versatile fails to provide the best
of luxury despite being a luxury brand vehicle. The seats are
low and very accommodating along with eight – way power
adjustability and power lumbar support for the driver seat
which allows for the best possible comfort and stability. The
cargo space may be considered as the best in class with
approximately 14.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear
seats. Moreover, the cargo space may be enlarged to 34.8 cubic
feet with the rear seats folded. The tilt and telescoping
steering wheel has been a convenience feature as well. The
Infotainment System incorporates computer – like mouse
controller for making choices. This is considered to be
slightly compromising while driving. Also, there is no
connectivity feature for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which
is another drawback for the 2017 model. The Infotainment
System, however, manages to include 7 inch display and remote
touch interface, Navigation, iPod / USB integration, six to ten
speaker sound system, Voice Controls, CD Player, Hands Free
Calling, Audio Streaming through Bluetooth and Satellite Radio.
