Editor's Overview

The lowest-priced car in Lexus' lineup, the CT 200h four-door hatchback is also the most fuel-efficient with a 43 mpg rating in city driving. The car uses a hybrid powertrain system similar to that of the Toyota Prius, but is filled with luxury and tech amenities in a compact package.

Reliable and fuel cost efficient.

I like the fact that it is fuel efficient, navigation, Bluetooth and has heated seats. It has been reliable since I bought it with no major issues. I am very comfortable driving it and even sitting in the seats it feels good on my back.

- Vanessa G

Good Enough For Me (idk about others)!

The car was previously owned, so it is not able to perform to its full potential. But it provides me with enough functionality to get from point A to B.

- Lilly V

It has very nice gas mileage, and does help with saving gas.

The only thing I do not completely like is how long it takes for the car to speed up. Also sometimes the gas does not completely transfer.
