I recently read about the latest Prius, which has improved hybrid technology, providing an approximate 10% increase in fuel economy. That is 55mpg in the 2016 Prius compared to 43mpg in the 2016 CT if I understand correctly. The new Prius has received high praises, and I'm actually quite surprised that the 2016 CT wasn't concurrently released with this upgraded tech. I also think that the CT is due for a HP upgrade, at very least for the F-Sport model.

Has anybody heard any news of the 2017 CT? What are your thoughts on what the 2nd gen CT should incorporate in terms of style, technology and performance?

When I posted the question, I thought it was all speculation, but I went and talked to my dealer about it and he had a surprising amount of details about it! Probably the most shocking, he said that the HP may be up all the way to 200hp...that would make this thing drive like a completely different car, all while still having the upgrade to 55mpg. Insane.

He showed me the renderings on lexusenthusiast.com and I wasn't very impressed. Honestly, I like the current f-sport design much more. Especially don't like the look of the rear end. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised with the actual release.
