Lexus CT 200h is the most aerodynamically efficient car in its class
Lexus are famous with their innovations and technologies. Recently, a lot manufacturers have been paying attention to the fuel consumption, because of the regulations and marketing. In that case, they have to improve not only the engines, but the aerodynamics, too.
Lexus CT 200h full hybrid is the most aerodynamically efficient car in its class achieving Cd 0.28. Furthermore, the quality of the handling is better, the ride comfort and the stability at high speed.
Lexus engineers used extensive computer aided design and wind tunnel testing to ensure every detail of the car's body –including the underneath – contributed to achieving the smoothest possible passage through the air, while retaining distinctive, contemporary styling. Their success is reflected in the lowest coefficient of drag in the small luxury car class – Cd 0.28.
Lexus CT 200h will be unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show on 30 September and the UK sales are scheduled to start in the beginning of 2011.
