If last month’s brochure scans of the mildly updated 2014 CT 200h weren’t convincing enough for you, then perhaps these scoop photos of a camouflage-free prototype of Lexus’ compact hybrid will do the job.
The model that was captured on camera by our scoop photographers is the more dynamic looking and handling F-Sport edition, which in its refreshed form, features the Lexus brand’s now signature pinched grille flowing above the redesigned bumper with a large plastic honeycomb insert and satin silver trim.
The only other noticeable styling changes on this car are the new alloy wheels and the reworked rear bumper with a different diffuser. Similar cosmetic updates should be applied to the regular CT 200h hatchback.
Whether Lexus has also altered the compact model’s interior and hybrid powertrain remains unknown at this time.
Look for the 2014MY to make its debut in one of the international motor shows in the following months.
