The U.S. pricing for the Lexus CT 200h has been announced by way of Nevada’s Lexus of Reno dealership, who have posted the full details to their blog one day before the official announcement.
To start with, the MSRP of the Entry-Level CT will be $29,120 USD ($29,995 after delivery charges), and includes standard equipment such as Safety Connect, XM Satellite Radio, USB connector for iPod/MP3 players, Bluetooth streaming audio and power lumbar seat support. A Premium-grade CT 200h, which adds a moonroof & heated seats to the entry-level model, will be available for $30,900 USD($31,775 after delivery charges).
As far as options go, here’s the full list available:
The CT 200h will also launch with over two dozen accessories:
…from comfort and convenience items to a 17” F Sport wheel and interchangeable dashboard trim panels. This CT-first for Lexus enables CT owners to customize the interior of their vehicle by easily replacing a black panel with one made of genuine bamboo, genuine ash burl, or metallic finish…
Lexus has also created the industry’s first Electronic Device Holder, which will come standard on every CT. This simple console-mounted device can easily hold most cell phones, music players, or portable Navigation devices, in close proximity to the power and USB ports on the console.
The final U.S. color list is as follows:
- 4V3 Fire Agate Pearl
- 5B1 Daybreak Yellow Mica
- 077 Starfire Pearl
- 1G1 Tungsten Pearl
- 1G0 Smokey Granite Mica
- 212 Obsidian
- 3R1 Matador Red Mica
- Nuluxe Material: Black, Ecru, Caramel
- Perforated Leather: Black, Water Gray
In the end, the MSRP of the Entry CT is significantly lower than both the IS 250 ($4,695 below) and the HS 250h ($6,480 below), but even more important was Lexus USA squeezing the price under the $30,000 mark. All that’s left to do is some competitor price comparisons — stay tuned!
