Lexus has introduced several exciting new car models over recent years. But one model that has captivated motorists and the press alike is the Lexus CT 200h. It was first unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and available to buy from 2011 onwards.

The Lexus CT 200h got designed by Takeshi Tanabe. It is a luxury small family car that is also ideal for business users. The “CT” stands for “Creative Touring,” according to various online sources.

We know when the car was first made, and who designed it. We also know what size of car it is. But what is it about this car that makes it one of the Japanese car maker’s best-selling models? In this blog post, I discuss some of the car’s top selling points.

It’s the “cool” big brother of the Toyota Prius

I recently saw an Internet meme that had a photograph of the Toyota Supra, the Prius and a screenshot from one of the Back to the Future movies. It had a witty caption underneath which said “we have to go back”!

What does that have to do with this blog post? The point is that the Prius isn’t exactly known for being a “cool” looking car! Lexus cars might be luxurious, but they also look great too.

The Lexus CT 200h is the cooler, bigger brother to the Toyota Prius. It uses the same 1.8-litre VVTi engine and electric powertrains from the Prius. If I had to choose between buying a Prius and a CT 200h, I would 100% buy the Lexus!

Even Kylie Minogue thinks the Lexus CT 200h is cool

It’s no secret that new cars that have celebrity endorsements are more likely to sell. In the case of the Lexus CT 200h, Australian pop icon Kylie Minogue got invited to be the model’s spokesperson.

If you head over to YouTube, you can search for the advert that features her with the CT!

It’s greener than the Lexus IS 250

According to Inchcape Lexus, the CT 200h is 42% greener than its cousin, the IS 250. Once upon a time, people were only concerned about brake horsepower. Today, it’s a different story. Motorists want to own cars that are kinder to the environment.

And business fleet managers want to buy cars that attract lower taxes. Hybrid cars are one such vehicle type, making the Lexus CT 200h the perfect car for business owners.

It’s affordable

Luxury motoring doesn’t always have to demand premium prices! The Lexus CT 200h is well-priced, making it an affordable and attractive option against similar cars of its class.

Most people tend to lease brand new cars these days. The Lexus CT 200h is one of the top cars that people lease in many countries around the world.

And because it’s a hybrid, motorists don’t need to worry about huge fuel bills on top of existing lease payments.
