The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus CT 200h is the industry's only small luxury hatchback that's also a hybrid, and it's considerably more fun than you might expect. The 2015 CLA is a small Mercedes done right, with enough of the brand's style and refinement mixed with a dash of youthfulness.
