2014 Lexus CT 200h range-F Sport front

Immediately you can notice the facelifted model with the company’s latest ‘spindle grille’ design. It looks much more aggressive than the outgoing model, with a sharp attitude. The rear end is also tightened up for a more prominent stance, while the interior gets an updated dash with a sporty IS-like steering wheel.

All variants now come with a reverse parking camera as standard, a more comprehensive media interface with Lexus’s Remote Touch mouse-like controller, a 10-speaker stereo (up from six), and automatic wipers.

From there selected models receive more kit on top of that. The base model Luxury can be optioned with a leather interior, seat warmers, and 17-inch alloy wheels. A sunroof and satellite navigation is also optional.

Moving up to the F Sport, it now comes with a unique black roof for that sporty look, a larger rear spoiler than before, as well as Lexus’s Enform call centre GPS guidance. Despite the added equipment the starting price has dropped by $2000.

The flagship Sports Luxury comes with adaptive radar-guided cruise control as standard, pre-collision warning with automatic braking technology, as well as LED taillights and privacy tinted windows. Starting prices have also dropped, by $1000.

Lexus has made some tweaks the chassis and suspension tune for the 2014 update, helping to provide a more engaging and dynamic driving experience according to Lexus.

All models come with the same hybrid powertrain as the outgoing model, consisting of a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired with electric motor assistance. Its combined output is rated at 100kW. It offers an official average fuel consumption of just 4.1L/100km.
