(TORONTO, ON – November 18, 2016) Everything about the 2017 Lexus CT 200h has been crafted for exceptional performance, and a rewarding ownership experience. With remarkable hybrid fuel efficiency and a refined luxury interior, the CT 200h exhibits the flawless attention to detail that only Lexus can offer its guests.

“Canadians have always loved the versatility that they get with a hatchback and the Lexus CT 200h gives them that versatility all wrapped up in a great luxury package.  Add in the fact that the CT200h is the world’s first luxury hybrid  hatchback, and you get a truly winning combination of comfort, five-door versatility, hybrid innovation and performance,” said Jennifer Barron, Director of Lexus in Canada.  “Every Lexus comes with our reputation for quality and reliability, and an outstanding Guest Experience.  It’s really everything Canadians look for in a luxury automobile.”

The CT 200h is offered in one model with five trim levels, as follows:

  • 2017 Lexus CT 200h (starting MSRP $32,750)

  • 2017 Lexus CT 200h Touring Package (starting MSRP $35,950)

  • 2017 Lexus CT 200h Executive Package (starting MSRP $40,450)

  • 2017 Lexus CT 200h F SPORT Series 1 (starting MSRP $38,350)

  • 2017 Lexus CT 200h F SPORT Series 2 (starting MSRP $41,200)

New for 2017, the CT 200h and CT 200h Touring Package are now equipped with a back-up camera with display in the rear view mirror. All trim levels now include this feature as standard, for added safety.

All CT 200h models are powered by a Lexus Hybrid Drive built around a 1.8L 4-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine and continuously variable transmission. This drivetrain delivers 134 net system horsepower, a fuel efficiency of 5.7L/100km city/highway combined, and the ability to operate in four guest-selectable drive modes: Normal, Sport, and ECO, plus EV for short distances.

The CT 200h harnesses its power with highly responsive, speed-sensitive electric power steering and a unique suspension system augmented with low-friction shock absorbers and stabilizer bars. The result is laser-sharp cornering that’s obedient and stable.

The F SPORT models enhance the ride with performance dampers, then inject LFA Supercar-inspired styling, with a bolder, more aggressive design including a mesh grille, extended rear spoiler, unique 17” alloy wheels, F SPORT interior fittings, and more.

Inside, the CT 200h rewards guests with sleek luxury, a surprising amount of space, and intuitive technology. The result is a distinctly modern interior that’s both innovative and versatile.

The CT 200h also helps protect guests with an extensive portfolio of active and passive safety features. These include eight airbags, front seats featuring whiplash injury lessening seatbacks, LED daytime running lamps and brake lamps, Vehicle stability control, several technologies to enhance braking performance, Smart Stop Technology, and more.
