The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
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 2013 Audi A3 wears its age well, and remains a sporty, versatile choice for compact hatchback buyers who can afford a little luxury.
