CT 200h
The all-new CT 200h combines luxury features, eye-catching styling, and driving excitement that will attract
the next generation of drivers to the Lexus brand. Styled with optimum aerodynamic efficiency, its size,
packaging, driver engagement, versatility, and full hybrid technology meet the requirements of younger,
tech-savvy buyers who are moving up to the luxury segment for the very first time.
Dynamic Handling with Class Leading MPG
The CT 200h features a 1.8 liter VVT-i gas engine paired with Lexus Hybrid Drive. CT offers four drive
modes thus enhancing the driver’s ability to match the car’s drive characteristics to his or her own driving
style. For the first time, a Sport mode setting changes steering feel, accelerator response, battery voltage
output to 650V, traction control response, and even the color of the instrument panel lighting from blue to
red, while turning the Hybrid meter into a tachometer! The EV mode allows for ultra-quiet running on
electric motor power alone while Normal mode has an essentially linear throttle response and Eco mode
emphasizes fuel economy.
In addition to the rewarding driving experience, the CT 200h comes to market with a remarkable claim:
it will offer the HIGHEST COMBINED FUEL ECONOMY IN THE LUXURY SEGMENT with a
rating of 42 MPG and 43 MPG CITY!
Versatile Styling with Luxury and Personalization
The CT 200h differentiates itself with a unique appeal to the eco-minded yet uncompromising luxury
seekers among the younger audience. The sleek design of the CT improves aerodynamic efficiency
yielding a drag coefficient of just 0.29, and delivers superior handling and NVH control with sophisticated
new suspension technology, featuring Yamaha performance dampers, standard on every car. In addition to
the exciting driving experience, the 5 door design, with split, flat- folding rear seatbacks, offers versatility as
well.
The interior is driver-focused with long seat cushions, aggressive bolsters, and a wide range of seat motion
to ensure driver comfort. Steering wheel and pedal angles have all been chosen to ensure that the driver
feels a connection with the car. And the center of gravity for the vehicle falls near the driver’s hip-point,
providing a feeling of immediate response to driver inputs. The interior features unprecedented levels of
refinement in this segment. The cabin combines superior ergonomics with premium quality materials to
create an outstanding driving environment. New for the CT is the NuLuxe seat material that looks and feels
like leather to driver and passengers, but is manufactured with the environment in mind. Overall, the
extensive use of metallic finishes and soft touch materials reinforces the luxury experience.
In addition, Lexus will offer nearly two dozen accessories for CT, ranging from comfort and convenience
items to a 17” F Sport wheel and interchangeable dashboard trim panels. This CT-first for Lexus enables CT
owners to customize the interior of their vehicle by easily replacing a black panel with one made of genuine
bamboo, genuine ash burl, or metallic finish, in the comfort of your stores. This increased accessory
selection acknowledges this new buyer and localizes personalization.
Lexus has also created the industry’s first Electronic Device Holder, which will come standard on every CT.
This simple console-mounted device can easily hold most cell phones, music players, or portable Navigation
devices, in close proximity to the power and USB ports on the console.
Pricing
To ensure appeal to this next generation of luxury buyers, the CT 200h will enter the market at a very
aggressive price position with a base MSRP of just $29,120 including a wealth of standard equipment such
as Safety Connect, XM Satellite Radio, USB connector for iPod/MP3 players, Bluetooth including
streaming audio and power lumbar at $1,130 below Audi A3 TDI! With DPH, the CT entry model will have
a starting price of $29,995! The Premium version will add Moonroof and Heated Seats to its extensive
standard feature list, and carry an MSRP of $30,900 (without DPH). The build strategy for CT is very

Already Ordered

Lexusguy...it was almost too easy. Everything was done on the phone. I called the manager at the dealership. We negotiated $1800 over actual invoice as the price I pay for the new car. Not including the remote start and the door sills, I was saving 2% off list or $770. Next, I sent him a deposit ($1,000) to order the car and he put the $1,800 over invoice in writing with the manager of the dealerships signature and card on the form. I don't want to keep bugging them but am I supposed to get some sort of confirmation that the car has been ordered and is he even able to order the car at all during what's currently happening in Japan? I know they delayed the back to work date for Toyota to March 22nd from this week. Any help on this would be apprecitated. BTW, my Enclave isn't due back from lease until June 23rd so I'm thinking I have enough time to get the car. My price before the added options of remote start and light up door sills was $35,762 and the list price was $36,532...that was for Premium car, NAV, Premium audio, Nuluxe interior (standard), LED Lowbeam headlights, and accessorie package (wheel locks, mat for cargo, cargo net)

You will get a confirmation once they know your car is built and or when they have it allocated to your store.
