Lexus is expecting to witness the fully hybrid cars contributing 50 percent of sales volume in 2015, and will apply the technology in every series except the LX.

To create the most dynamic driving experience possible, the CT200h is engineered to help you attack corners with vigor, curves with agility, and respond to your slightest touch with dynamic assurance.

The CT200h is equipped with an Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) to utilize power, torque and fuel most efficiently.

What is truly remarkable about the CT200h is that it's so easy to forget you're in a hybrid at all. While its efficient engine and aerodynamic design fuel your passion to save at the pump, its agile, responsive handling fuels your passion to drive.

Whether you're looking for added exhilaration or taking a relaxing drive through the neighborhood, Drive Mode Select enables you to make your CT200h more responsive or efficient with a simple turn of the switch.

The CT200h offers a surprising amount of interior space. In fact, with both rear seats folded, or with a 60/40 split, the CT200h offers over 30 cubic feet of room and can accommodate cargo of multiple shapes and sizes. Easy access to the cargo area along with the five-door design provide the ultimate in convenience and versatility.

Without removing the key from your pocket or purse, SmartAccess can sense your approach, illuminating entry points from the exterior puddle lamps to the interior lighting. You can then unlock the doors and trunk with the touch of your hand.

Every piece of technology in the CT200h - from easy, intuitive controls to the various entertainment options - is designed to keep the driver in touch with the world.

While an ordinary crash-test dummy can provide 119 data points, Lexus uses digital models comprised of millions. The result of such an innovative approach to safety: The CT200h is equipped with an advanced eight airbag system and Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats.

The available Pre-Collision System (PCS) is engineered to detect an imminent frontal collision and, while retracting the front seatbelts, automatically helps to provide increased braking pressure the moment you step on the brake pedal.
