Lexus Summer Road Trip: CT 200h in Black & White

2012 Lexus CT 200h Sebastien

As mentioned last week, I went on an extended Canadian road trip in July with the 2013 Lexus GS 350 for a Lexus Magazine photo assignment.

During my visit to Ottawa, I asked local Lexus CT owner, hybrid racer, & Bel-Air Lexus sales associate Sebastien Kroetsch to help me with some in-motion photos of the GS, and all he asked in return was a couple shots of his CT 200h — here are the results:

The folks at Bel-Air Lexus have been great to me since the very start of this website, and Sebastien is true Lexus enthusiast — big thanks for everything!

  1. Nice job!! Thanks a lot KREW.
  2. Every time i look at this car i get a gag reflex. I get the whole mpg thing which i lov but have u sat inside? Its small crowded and definitely 0 lexus lux. Hopefully it gets redesigned soon with a brand new interior and some major upgrades on the outside. If MB or BMW come up with a hybrid 1 series or C class they would simply destroy CT sales. This is coming from a lexus only buyer.
    • For a car of this size and class the CT200h actually has a pretty good interior. The materials and build quality are superb. In fact the cabin of the CT strikes me as being far better than the cabin of the BMW 1 series for example. Where the CT200h fails in my opinion is exterior design.
    • Everybody has their own opinion. My point of view is there is no other vehicle that look as good and that can achieve what the CT can for the same price. By the time any competitors come with their own version of the CT, Lexus will have owned the market and already be in their second generation.
  3. that's awesome that you make it out to the dealers krew. great photos
  4. Thanks for such a great post and the review, I am totally impressed! Keep stuff like this coming.
