2011 Lexus CT 200hRon H - Hillsborough, NJ12/10/2015
I average 40m per gallon in this car! It's fast enough for me (you just need to get used to the acceleration and braking which is less responsive that has-powered vehicles but you get used to it quickly). If you are a large/tall driver it is still possible to enjoy the experience, but you will be snug into the cockpit for sure. Not much rear space for passengers. Interior is beautiful and feels like real leather. The car feels solidly built and that's a plus. It's my first luxury car experience and I enjoy it over any car I've had in the past. Love the locking mechanism on the doors and hatchback- swipe your hand under the handle with the key in your pocket and the car opens up. Very cool. great on the environment.
Review from veteran CT200h owner

As most already know, this is Lexus' version of the Toyota Prius, so very similar in many ways but at the same time different as well. First of all, this Lexus hybrid gets the best fuel economy out of all Lexus models (43/40 city/highway). Second, the vehicle is lightweight and powered by a 1.8 L I4 motor which produces 134 hp built on a eCVT-i transmission. This is how the hybrid gets its performance while at the same time conserving fuel usage via regenerative braking technology and reduced wear-and-tear on the engine/mechanical components. Finally, the CT200h is built with a nickel-metal hydride battery, meaning the vehicle self-charges just by simple driving and braking, no plug-in needed. Enough talk... see for yourself the CT200h!
Sporty hybrid worth the price!

I love my car! I looked at a variety of hybrids before deciding on the CT. I drive in about 90 minutes' worth of traffic to and from work every day, so I needed something efficient but didn't want to compromise luxury (without breaking the bank!). I was able to find a super low mileage CT with all the bells and whistles, and it was a steal! While the pickup isn't the same as what I had before (gave up my Audi!), it's sufficient for everyday driving. The sport mode offers a bit more speed when needed, and the eco mode makes the car even more efficient when you're cruising. Over the last few months, I've averaged 46 MPGs, and look good doing it! The cargo capacity is also better than expected, and we can comfortably fit 4 adults in the car.
