Thinking of buying a used Lexus CT 200h?
Cazoo has a range of Lexus CT cars for sale. If you're thinking of buying or financing a used Lexus CT, we answer any questions you might have below.
The style of the car
The CT is a compact five-door hatchback. It’s distinctive looking with its large front grille and upright rear. Inside, the bold stepped dashboard design and high-quality finish give the Lexus a luxurious feel. The F-Sport models feature larger alloys wheels and a subtle body kit.
How it drives
Precise steering, compact external dimensions and a low-slung driving position help the Lexus CT feel great to drive. With its quiet hybrid engine, smooth automatic gearbox and supportive seats it’s relaxing both around town and on the motorway. Performance from the sophisticated engine is comparable with rivals’ diesel units, while its clever CVT automatic gearbox always ensures there’s instant power. Its compact size makes it easy to park.
The Lexus CT is one of the smaller cars in its class, but there’s still comfortably enough room for four adults, while the boot will accommodate a couple of large suitcases. All versions of the Lexus CT are extremely well equipped, with dual zone climate control, parking sensors and a 7-inch infotainment screen. F-Sport models add some sporty visual extras inside and out, plus part leather trim and heated seats. There are also high-end Luxury and Takumi versions.
Running costs and reliability
Like many premium models, the Lexus CT represents good value as a used buy. It also attracts less depreciation over time so it will hold onto its value. The Lexus’ hybrid engine adds further financial appeal with its low tax bills and impressive fuel economy, meaning it’ll cost no more to run than a smaller car in this respect. Maintenance costs are on a par with premium rivals, while the brand’s reliability and quality is legendary. The CT was named ‘Most Reliable Car’ in the Car Buyer awards. Safety is also superb with a five-star Euro NCAP award.
How it compares with similar cars
The CT is smaller than the compact executive Lexus IS saloon. Competing with models such as the BMW 1 Series and Audi A3, the Lexus stands out by only being available with a self charging petrol-electric hybrid engine - the same unit that’s used in the Toyota Prius. Fun to drive, it’s also quiet, comfortable and highly efficient. It’s beautifully finished and comes packed with standard equipment. A Best Buy award from Which underlines the Lexus’ desirability.
