Facelifted 2018 Lexus CT200h Priced From £23,495 In The UK

It’s been seven years since Lexus first introduced the CT200h, its entry-level hybrid model and now customers in the UK can get the 2018 facelifted version.

UK has been the number 1 market in Europe for the Lexus CT200h, with more than 27,000 cars sold there – one third of the total sold across the region.

Lexus says it’s the most significant update of the CT200h, featuring a reworked exterior design for more character, with new lights and DRLs, a new mesh pattern for the front grille, new bezels for the fog lights, a new tailgate garnish and more.

The interior was already one of the best places to sit in its class, with high-quality materials but the facelift brought the company’s latest 10.3-inch infotainment system which also has a clearer display and a handy split-screen function. There is also a wider palette of colors to choose from for the upholstery, including two-tone options.

Lexus has also refreshed the F Sport version in the 2018 CT200h’s range, which makes the exterior a bit …sportier thanks to an exclusive mesh pattern, the grille’s metallic black finish, jet black detailing and more.

All versions above the entry-level SE grade will adopt the Lexus Safety System+ range of active safety systems, which includes a Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam and Road Sign Assist.

The hybrid powertrain remains unchanged and offers 134hp of total power, CO2 emissions that start from 88g/km when fitted with 16-inch alloys and a combined fuel consumption of 74.3mpg UK.

Prices for the 2018 Lexus CT200h kick off at £23,495 in the UK for the base SE grade and can reach all the way up to £31,245 for the F Sport Premier Pack model.

    Very very nice and underrated.

      Until you drive it and realize its grossly outdated from its 10second 0-60mph, to the road noise, terrible dynamics etc. Its essentially a fancily dressed up last generation Prius. Beauty is, though, you can get these for like $200/mo zero down leases quite easily.

    Drop the 200t powertrain in there and this would’ve been a good car.
