I picked up my CT200 (non-Nav) Wednesday evening and my initial impressions are very, very good (coming from an RX350).
Handling, ride, interior noise, acceleration -all much better than I expected, even in comparison to the RX. Certainly not quite to that level but very good considering the size/weight of the car.
Still learning my way around a hybrid - cannot get used to how quiet the car is when starting up - and learning how the various drive modes effect the driving/handling of the car. And I am still getting used to the idea of pushing a button to get into Park instead of it being on the gear lever.
Do agree that the rear window is a bit small, but putting the two HUGE rear headrests down (you can turn them down so that they are not in your line of sight) makes a big improvement.
Still feeling my way around the voice command for the blue tooth telephone (iPhone 4) but was very impressed how easy it was to connect the phone - including the Blue Tooth Audio - and it works great.
Do wish there was a bit more storage room - both in front and in the rear - but it is a significantly smaller car than I am used to.
Was surprised that I was able to fit into the rear seat behind the driver's seat when it is adjusted for my driving (I am about 6'3").
Do miss somethings from the RX - the way the moon roof opens much wider, the way the mirrors dim automatically, the way the steering wheel lifts out of your way to get out (that is probably what I miss the most at this point).
Do love the cool entry system and very happy that the key has to be very close to the car to allow entry. (Would not even allow my wife to open the passenger door if I was standing on the driver's side - that did surprise me a bit.)
Overall very happy. (Hopefully I will still feel that way after the newness and uniqueness wears off.)

Thanks for the tip about the user settings - will have to look into that further.
Had the same experience as mine was sitting in the dealership waiting for my arrival - the salesman was approached by (according to him) 4 or 5 people interested in my baby.
And yes - the large plastic thing is probably the holder - at least that is where mine was but the salesman did point it out to me.
