Lexus CT 200h Brochure Leak!

Lexus CT 200h

The Lexus CT 200h brochure has been leaked by way of World Car Fans, let’s get straight to the images:

Some talking points:

  • The CT is built on an all new platform with a double-wishbone rear and tuned McPherson strut front suspension
  • The 1.8L VVT-i engine found in the Prius is confirmed as the engine component of the CT 200h’s powertrain. No mention is made of overall horsepower.
  • There will be four distinct driving modes: EV, Eco, Normal & Sport. Switching to sport will change the instrument panel and center console spotlight to red. (Nice touch!)
  • Overall dimensions:
    • Length: 4,320mm/170”
    • Width: 1,765mm/69.5”
    • Height: 1,430mm/56.3”
    • Wheelbase: 2,600mm/102.4”

I’m still pouring over these images, but I really like what I see so far. How the CT 200h translated the LF-Ch’s front-end was my major concern, and that was handled expertly, meshing elements of the IS with the Toyota Prius. And just look at this interior:

The Lexus CT 200h will officially debut on March 2nd at the Geneva Auto Show.
