Lexus’ hybrid hatchback soldiers on for the new model year with just a few updates. The 2016 Lexus CT 200h receives an updated grille and three other new features to keep it looking and feeling fresh.
The CT 200h sports a new chrome grille surround as well as a new optional moonroof. Another new option is Lexus Enform Remote, which allows drivers to lock or unlock the doors, stop or start the engine, alter the temperature, and control other features of the car using a mobile app. The new Lexus Enform Service Connect keeps drivers up-to-date on maintenance alerts, warning light notifications, and other important information regarding the vehicle.
Other than these minor updates, the 2016 Lexus CT 200h remains unchanged. It sticks with the same 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine and two-electric-motor system for a total output of 134 hp. The powertrain is coupled with an electronically-controlled CVT, and fuel economy stays at 43/40 mpg city/highway.
Standard features on the 2016 Lexus CT 200h include a 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, and a six-speaker audio system with speakers constructed from sustainable bamboo and resin. Buyers can still upgrade to the F Sport model that features a more aggressive grille, black contrast roof, rear spoiler with two large air ducts, and a specially tuned suspension.
