The 2015 Lexus CT 200h doesn't have any direct competitors, as it's the only compact hybrid luxury hatchback on the market.
However, there are a few that stand up to it for either fuel economy or brand cachet, depending on what you're looking for in a car.
The best equipped versions of the Toyota Prius are slightly more spacious, but not as engaging or attractive.
The Ford C-Max is a family car with more technology than you'd expect from a non-luxury vehicle, but it doesn't earn the same kind of gas mileage that you'll find in the Toyota products.
The Audi A3 is no longer offered in a hatchback in its traditional guise–though a fuel-sipping diesel wagon is on the way–and it's one of the best-driving vehicles in the segment.
The VW GTI is a blast to drive and offers better interior space than the CT, but it's not offered as a hybrid.
There's also the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, which stands head and shoulders above the rest for brand cachet, but it's not nearly as fuel-efficient as the CT 200h.
