Customers can also opt in for the Lexus Enform Remote and Lexus Enform Service Connect systems. The former allows the owner to remotely view and control certain vehicle features using a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. Key features include remote door lock/unlock, remote stop/start for the engine and climate control, vehicle finder, guest driver monitor and more. Lexus Enform Remote can only be ordered on vehicles equipped with optional Lexus Display Audio or Navigation.

As for Lexus Enform Service Connect, it allows customers to remotely view information about certain aspects of their Lexus vehicle via the MyLexusandBeyond mobile application for iOS smartphone users or LexusDrivers.com. Information includes maintenance alerts, warning light notifications as well as a vehicle health report that includes email and push notifications for diagnostic information, required maintenance reminders, current vehicle alerts, service campaigns, and more.

The hybrid powertrain of the 2016 Lexus CT 200h remains unchanged, consisting of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine linked to a 650 volt motor/generator for a combined output of 134hp. A second motor in the hybrid system acts as both engine starter and generator to charge the hybrid battery pack.

The 2016 Lexus CT 200h returns an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 43 mpg (5.4 l/100 km) city, 40 mpg (5.8 l/100 km) highway and 42 mpg (5.6 l/100 km) combined.
