Definitely get a 2012 version over the 2011.
Dealers not discounting much on 2011 but 1 year difference might cost you $2000 in the future, when you try selling it.
Also, it feels good when you drive your car for 12 months and it's still new.
By the way, in 2012 they added an additional compartment (where the navigation system normally located) and it has 12V socket. This compartment is great for a portable navigation system with cables. Easy to hide when you don't need it.
We got a 2012 yesterday. The sicker price was $33016 (MSRP). Same prices as you get when build on Lexus website.
I was able to get $550 off this price.
Purchased at Lexus of Seattle.
CT 200h Premium (with sun roof and heated seats).
Nebula Gray Pearl + Black Nuluxe trim.
Options: rear view camera, clear door protectors, cargo net, wheel locks, rear bumper clear protector and cargo carpet mat.
