The Lexus CT claims the title of the world’s first full hybrid luxury compact.
Showcasing the manufacturer’s revolutionary engineering advances and the most functional style qualities, it stands apart from other compact cars with grace, pride and understated confidence.
The new Lexus CT can be discovered in more detail and taken for a test drive at Jardine Motors Group in Cambridge, Ipswich and Tyne & Wear today.
Award-winning safety is one of the CT’s most famous and defining aspects.
A strategically placed driver’s knee airbag supplements the dual-stage system throughout the interior.
Which incorporates braking, traction and stability controls that assist by providing lightning responses and intuitive support.
Clean lines sweep from the model’s subset air vents and matt black front grille over the gently sloped roof to the integrated rear spoiler, joining each contemporary design aspect in aerodynamic harmony. LED daytime running lights form a strongly defined arrowhead shape within the angled headlights, and the standard 15-inch alloy wheel rims can be increased in diameter to enhance the confident and purposeful aura of the vehicle.
The CT roars into life at the touch of a single button operated from the leather-covered telescopic steering wheel. Optional navigation, sports and multimedia packages are provided to tailor the interior specification to individual requirements.
Acceleration to 60mph is accomplished in 10.3 seconds, thanks to the CT’s hybrid power system – a pioneering fusion of a 249bhp petrol engine and a 73kW electric motor with the VVT-i valve mechanism. Above and beyond the expected economy and emissions from a petrol/electric hybrid, the vehicle delivers a stunning 74.3mpg combined.
The CT can be operated in any of four carefully modified driving modes to navigate more challenging roads: Normal, Eco, Sport and EV. Independent front and rear suspension systems underpin the vehicle’s agile handling, automatically levelling the lightweight chassis on rougher terrains.
