Expert Quotes:

41 mpg city, 42 highway
U.S. EPA

The trade-off is excellent mileage
Car and Driver

Lexus officials tell us the CT 200h is disadvantaged by its higher curb weight (nearly 100 extra pounds), less slippery bodywork, less aggressive regenerative braking characteristics and wider, grippier tires
Edmunds' Inside Line



The 2012 Lexus CT 200h is greener than almost any other luxury car, but if mpg numbers mean everything you might still want to go with the Prius.

Just like the Prius, the CT 200h features an exhaust-gas recovery system that helps lower emissions and improve fuel economy—and helps reduce the amount the gasoline engine runs in short-trip use.

As with most hybrids, real-world mileage varies widely (and wildly) based on conditions. If you drive the CT hard enough, you can see mileage creep down into the 20s, but we predict most people will achieve averages close to the EPA's 42 mpg city, 41 highway ratings. Over several real-world drives, we've seen results in the upper 30s, and into the mid 40s in very careful driving.

Conclusion

The 2012 Lexus CT 200h is one of the most fuel-efficient luxury vehicles on the market.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
