2016 Lexus CT | Vehicle Showcase
The 2016 Lexus CT is the flagship entry-level luxury 5-door hatchback with hybrid technology for the Lexus family. It comes available in one main trim, the CT 200h that starts at a base price of $31,300. Today, we are going to take a closer look at what makes the new CT the boundary-pushing vehicle that it is.
Engine and Transmission
The 2016 CT comes with a unique combination of a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder DOHC gasoline engine with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) paired up with a Lexus Hybrid Drive system using an electric engine powered by a nickel-metal hydride battery to achieve the best of both worlds in modern engine technology. The pair, using exhaust heat recovery, super ultra low emissions, atkinson cycling and EV mode achieves 134 horsepower of power output. The engine system is paired up with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and features a line of performance aiding mechanical features such as vehicle stability control, drive mode select, traction control and hill-start assist control, all of which, can be selected to be turned on or off via switches.
Features and Amenities
Even though the CT is an entry-priced model as far as the Lexus family is concerned, there is no compromise in terms of the luxury and design that defines the Lexus brand consumers have come to love.
The sporty CT looks stylish from the inside out using 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels with wheel locks, hybrid blue-accented emblems, rear spoiler, projector style halogen headlamps, fog lamps, LED daytime running lights and illuminated entry with natural fadeout.
Sitting at the drivers seat you’ll notice a leather wrapped, 3-spoke steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls, air conditioning in the vehicle with dual zone automatic climate control, rear seat heater ducts, a slew of modern audio peripherals including integrated SiriusXM satellite radio and Bluetooth capability. In terms of convenience, you’ll find retained accessory power, cruise control, smart key system with push button start and keyless entry.
Aside from all the standard amenities, Lexus offers optional upgrade packages for those inclined on taking their new CT to the highest degree of customization.
