After offering a peek last week, Lexus officially premiered their new compact hybrid, the 2014 CT 200h, at this week’s Guangzhou Motor Show in China.
In addition to a new grille, the updated hybrid also offers a new sophisticated exterior styling, refined interior with upgraded equipment, and enhanced driving performance for the 2014 model year. In addition, it will be available in Lexus’ F SPORT edition.
As mentioned, the 2014 CT 200h gets the brand’s “spindle grille” design, as well as new 10-spoke 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, a new shark fin-style roof antenna, and a new bumper design that sports Lexus’ L-shaped reflector housing. A Lexus first, a sporty black roof is available in six color schemes.
In addition to its style, the vehicle also has one of the best EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings in its segment with a combined rating of 42 mpg, 43 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
