High-strength steel is generously employed around the rear hatch opening to chassis rigidity and crash-test performance while minimizing weight.
Road & Track



The 2014 Lexus CT 200h does well on safety, with a comprehensive list of active and passive safety features, and the highest scores in crash testing. The standard safety features includes stability control, anti-lock brakes, Brake Assist, and eight standard airbags (including knee bags for both front occupants). A pre-collision safety system is an option.

The Lexus CT has never been rated for crash safety by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), likely due to its low sales volume. So ratings from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) are the only ones we have to go on. For 2014, the CT is no longer deemed a "Top Safety Pick" as it had been for several years previously, because the IIHS hasn't tested it on the new and tougher Small Overlap Front Crash test. It earns the IIHS's top rating of "Good" in all four other categories--Moderate-Overlap Front Crash, Side, Roof Strength, and Head Restraints & Seats.

The CT offers a good view out the front, even for shorter drivers. To our surprise, rearward vision was good despite both thick roof pillars and the very shallow. almost slit-like rear window in the tailgate.

Conclusion

With good safety scores in its corner, the Lexus CT 200h also offers a long list of standard and optional safety systems.

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.
