I just received a massive stack of Lexus CT 200h photos in my inbox, including some pics of a wonderful
beige Ecru leather interior with a bamboo (?) wood trim — look at this (click for a larger image):
That sliver of wood really sets the whole thing off — I’m extremely impressed with how this interior looks in a lighter shade, it really highlights the blend between Lexus luxury and that European sensibility. Expertly done.
Next up is this black interior done up with
NuLuxe fabric and minus the Remote Touch & navigation:

CT 200h exterior photos (including more like this) to come shortly!
Update: Have a major correction to make, the black fabric interior is not the NuLuxe material we’ve been hearing about, but a fabric trim level almost certainly reserved for European markets. Here’s a direct quote from the email I received:
NuLuxe is a synthetic leather, with a smooth, soft, leathery surface. In the U.S., we will offer either NuLuxe or genuine Leather. Europe and some other markets are looking at fabric for their entry level vehicles. The image you have is one of the fabric alternatives.
