2011 Lexus CT 200h Features

9.0
Features
The CT isn't lacking in standard features. Lexus appears to have hit all the commonly desired features—including plenty for those younger, more tech-savvy shoppers. Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio support is standard; so is full iPod control, XM Satellite Radio, a Smart Access system with push-button start, and the Lexus Safety Connect emergency and concierge system. Dual-zone climate control, cruise control, and steering-wheel audio controls are also included.

There's plenty of potential for options, and we predict that choosing liberally from the list will drive the CT's sub-$30,000 base sticker price up over the $40k mark. Possibilities include LED headlamps with washers, a power moonroof, heated front seats, an in-mirror backup camera, rain-sensing wipers, and a couple of substantial packages that bundle premium audio with a moonroof and/or hard-drive based navigation. Nav systems also include the Lexus Enform information system. A device holder for iPhones and the like is on the way, as are several F-Sport performance accessories.

So do we like the CT? In short: yes, very much—and even though the Honda CR-Z offers a manual gearbox, we'd rather be driving the Lexus for its better handling, better ride, and very functional design. You get almost all of the benefits of the Prius—including a hybrid-exclusive shape, without the Prius's aversion to corners.

Lexus has given the 2011 CT 200h a standard feature set that’s a good value—as well as an options list that won’t leave shoppers wanting.
