Loading Comparison...


The Lexus CT 200h compact five-door hatchback hybrid has changed little since its 2011 debut, and it carried into the 2016 model year with minor feature updates, a newly optional moonroof, and a new chrome grille surround.

The Lexus CT 200h is a rarity in today’s market: a small luxury hybrid hatchback. It’s the smallest, lowest-priced model in the Lexus lineup, blending impressive gas mileage with a sporty character.

Fun to drive in Sport mode, the CT 200h is a likable and practical hatchback that handles decently. In real-world driving, 40-mpg fuel economy is easily achievable.

Sitting low on 17-inch wheels, the CT 200h has an assertive profile, with appropriate chrome trim and a long, flat roof that ends in a spoiler. Next to the CT 200h, many similar-size economy cars look drab and dull.

A 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, rated at 98 horsepower, works with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system. Powertrain output totals 134 horsepower. Essentially, it’s a Prius powertrain, but in a more refined model.

Dual motor-generators can propel the car without the gas engine at low speeds. They also add torque to supplement gas-engine output. Finally, they serve as generators to recharge the nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, located under the rear load deck. Drive Mode selection offers four choices: Normal, Eco, EV, and Sport.

Gas mileage is where the CT 200h shines brightest. No other luxury compact comes anywhere close to its EPA estimate of 42 mpg Combined city and highway driving.

Stylish two-tone interior trim, bolder than in other Lexus models, may be accented by bamboo, black wood, or ash burl. In addition to the base model, an F Sport edition features special suspension tuning, as well as a variety of appearance extras.

Standard equipment is bountiful, and the CT 200h has an extensive option list, including active-safety features. Options include a moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, LED headlights, heated front seats, parking assist, in-mirror rearview camera, navigation, pre-collision warning, and radar cruise control. Many options may be purchased in packages.

The CT 200h gets top scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which named it a Top Safety Pick Plus.


Two trim levels are offered: CT 200h ($31,250) comes with keyless ignition, Bluetooth voice and audio streaming, satellite radio, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, and the Lexus Safety Connect emergency alert system. Also standard are a rear spoiler, NuLuxe-trimmed seats, power front seats, and six-speaker audio.

CT 200h F-Sport Special Edition ($32,980) comes with machined-finish 17-inch wheels, a slightly lowered F Sport-tuned suspension, mesh grille, larger rear spoiler, and aluminum pedals. Seats may be trimmed with black NuLuxe or perforated leather.


When introduced, the CT 200h came across as a slab-sided five-door hatchback with a handsome, sporty appearance. Front-end freshening for 2014 added a spindle-style grille, but changed nothing in the CT’s straightforward profile. All the styling elements seem to work together effectively.

With its low roof and thick pillars, the CT 200h blends two concepts: the company’s flowing L-finesse design language, and a saucy, semi-aggressive hatchback shape. Wrapping into the rear pillars, the back window has a particularly curious appearance. A long spoiler pushes the roofline above the abbreviated tailgate, while thinly tapered taillights convey a taut impression.


Attractive and functional, the CT 200h cabin is largely luxurious as well. Just a glance at the wealth of knobs, switches, and display screens demonstrates that the CT is a feature-packed luxury car, despite its compact dimensions.

Front seats are thick, supportive and spacious, helped by generous headroom. Because the CT is lower and shorter than a Toyota Prius, the driver gets a low seating position, though that can enhance the sporty feel. Legs wind up extended farther than they would be in an upright-oriented vehicle.

Back seats offer acceptable, but hardly expansive, space. Taller riders may struggle for comfort. Cargo space is limited by the high load floor, which covers the battery pack. Stuff in one too many grocery bags and the rearward view through the slit-like tailgate window starts to shrink.

Only a few bits of hard plastic detract from the rich materials quality on the wide console and well-laid-out dashboard. Lexus provides ample storage for miscellaneous items, but back-seat occupants lack cupholders.

Driving Impressions

Adapting hybrid hardware from the larger Toyota Prius, the CT 200h stirs an element of driving excitement into the hatchback’s miserly fuel economy. Lexus engineers modified the powertrain to provide a more satisfying, sporty road experience.

Driven gently, in Normal mode, the CT feels neither sporty nor energetic. In Sport mode, it feels more animated; but that extra energy is accompanied by startling engine roar. Even when pushing lightly on the accelerator pedal, Sport mode provides full electric assist. As a result, the CT 200h feels friskier than its 10-second 0-60 mpg acceleration time might suggest.

If you can ignore the engine sound at higher speeds, it’s surprisingly fun to drive. Not only does Sport mode alter and improve powertrain behavior, it transforms the basic power gauge into a red-encircled tachometer for the gasoline engine. At lower speeds, with a light load, the electric motor can operate the CT 200h independently of the gas engine, at speeds up to 25 mph.

European-style chassis tuning, with a firm suspension, means CT 200h roadholding trounces any Prius model. Electric power steering is on the numb side, though the CT is agile and responsive, able to take curves crisply. Sport mode imparts a bit more road feel. Either way, passengers will notice little pavement harshness.

Except for engine noise, along with periodic steady-speed droning, the CT 200h is quiet on the road. Virtually no wind or road sounds enter the cabin. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels, with no paddle shifters to simulate the gears in a conventional transmission.

Even shorter drivers get a good view toward the front. Despite a shallow back window and thick roof pillars, rearview visibility is good, too.

Fuel economy is hard to beat, EPA-rated at 43/40 mpg City/Highway.


Lexus cut the base price for 2016, making the moonroof a $1,100 option, and the CT 200h is nicely equipped for just past $33,000 (including destination charge). Options are numerous, though, and can easily boost the total to $40,000 or more. For buyers who demand excellent economy, but dislike the drab nature of many hybrids, the stimulating CT 200h can be a revelation. A redesign is expected in the next year or two.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
