Customize this popular luxury hybrid with four available options packages, including F SPORT
Bold, youthful design, a driver-focused interior and a performance suspension: the 2013 Lexus CT 200h hybrid luxury sportback delivers all this, and more. Powered by the advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive, the CT rewards drivers with the best fuel efficiency of any luxury vehicle in Canada.
For the 2013 model, the CT 200h’s enhanced standard equipment includes a four-way power front passenger seat and a revised driver’s seat armrest.
“The Lexus CT 200h introduced Canadians to a new interpretation of luxury – as the world’s first sportback luxury hybrid, it’s urban, advanced, and progressive,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director of Lexus in Canada. “For 2013, we’re pleased to offer our guests the Lexus CT 200h, plus a choice of four available options packages, including the performance-focused F SPORT Edition.”
Every CT 200h is powered by an advance and proven Lexus Hybrid Drive system, which offers both performance and efficiency without compromise. The CT 200h features a finely-tuned Atkinson Cycle 1.8L inline four-cylinder gasoline engine, a high-torque electric drive motor, a powerful battery and sophisticated power management system. The result is 134 net horsepower, instant torque and advanced hybrid-only features such as regenerative braking and drive-mode select. Mated to a continuously variable transmission the CT 200h confers confident, smooth acceleration and impressive fuel efficiency – at just 4.6L/100 KM city/highway combined. Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), two-way exhaust control, and other features maximize performance and efficiency.
The CT 200h offers four drive modes: in addition to a normal setting, guests may dial up Sport Mode for additional fun or ECO Mode for improved efficiency. Meanwhile, an EV Mode allows the CT 200h to operate for short distances on battery power alone.
The front independent suspension features MacPherson strut geometry and stabilizer bars to enhance handling and ride comfort, while a double-wishbone rear suspension provides exceptional agility and control, with a compact design that leaves more room for luggage. Hill-start Assist Control minimizes roll-back when starting while on a grade.
Safety is always standard on a Lexus, so every CT 200h features a suite of eight airbags (driver and front passenger, driver and front passenger knee, front seat mounted side, and front and rear side curtain), front seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters, anchor points for child seats, child protector rear door locks, a tire pressure monitoring system, and on-board first aid kit. The Lexus CT 200h also features powerful front ventilated disc and rear disc brakes plus the Lexus Hybrid Drive’s regenerative braking system, which captures kinetic energy produced during braking, converts it to electricity, and stores it in the hybrid system’s battery for later use. Every CT 200h also features, as standard, a suite of six active safety technologies: Antilock Braking System, Brake Assist, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control and Smart Stop Technology work together to help drivers avoid potential accident situations.
Every 2013 Lexus CT 200h has room for five adults, and sports a generous suite of convenience and luxury features:
