Lexus CT 200h F-Sport is a full hybrid premium compact car, which is targeted to young people, who know what they want. The individuality and style of the machine are unique.

The exterior boasts 17" dark-finish alloys, a larger rear spoiler, flared side skirts, a mesh front grille and new aero-styled bumpers front and rear. The interior includes F-Sport steering wheel with a flat bottom section and aluminium pedals and scuff plates.

F-Sport is based on SE-L grade and adds cruise control, F-Sport black leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric driver's seat adjustment, auto-dimming (electrochromatic) electrically retractable door mirrors and a rear parking camera that links to a display in the rear-view mirror.

You can also opt for HDD navigation system combined with Lexus's Remote Touch control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, back guide monitor and 10-speaker audio package. Front and rear parking sensors and a sunroof are also available.

CT 200h F-Sport comes with upgraded suspension with lateral damping system as standard. Coil spring rates have been changed and the standard Showa shock absorbers replaced with Kayaba dampers that give more sports-oriented performance.

The most staggering about the vehicle is its fuel consumption - 68.9mpg official combined cycle. It also emits just 94g/km CO2 emissions. And, as the only full hybrid in its class, it can run for up to a mile in slow moving traffic on its electric power alone, reducing fuel use and tailpipe emissions to zero.

2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport will hit the market in January as the prices start at £27 850 OTR.
