The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Lexus CT 200h remains the only compact luxury hybrid hatchback, and it's more stylish, fun, and economical than that blend might indicate. It's got (mostly) Lexus levels of luxury and refinement, with a fun Sport mode and a combination of good value and great fuel economy. The 2012 Lexus HS 250h offers lots of technology along with its high gas mileage, but it's not engaging to drive, nor is its level of luxury particularly spectacular.
