Should the 2014 Lexus CT 200h Look Like This?

Lexus CT 2014 Refresh

It’s been rumored that the Lexus CT 200h will be receiving a mid-cycle refresh in the 2014 model year, and Japanese magazine Best Car has created the rendering above as an illustration of what the car might look like.

What do you think?

  1. No. Needs something more exciting. This looks a bit bland and odd.
  2. The car will be refreshed and the F Sport version will look like it should have the whole time...very agressive.
    • Why should a car like this look "aggressive"? It has a 0-60 time in about 11 Seconds and theres nothing "aggressive" about that.
    • Great question. I saw the car at a private Lexus event and there is no doubt the update will be have more agressive cosmetics but same powertarin and suspension.
  3. Refreshment is not necessary! Why always change design every 4th year? Lexus tradition means do not change design to often and to strong. This will keep up the resale price. Look at Audi: every second year a redesign of any model. Horrible!
  4. Instead of redesign a new engine should come up, eg 300h or 2.0t
  5. The CT already has a mild spindle grill. It isn't very noticeable but the outline is there. All they did in this rendering is black out the bumper. The updated CT should receive something more noticeable and more aggressive.
  6. RAL

    aggressive . . . aggressive . . . aggressive . . . aggressive . . . aggressive . . .
  7. I was expecting something better ... :(
  8. boring, bland, old age pensioner Micra-styling!! This needs to be sexed up, look at the new Merc-A Class ...come on Lexus!!
  9. Absolutely NO! Lexus should put the updated HS' grill into the CT and have the new 2-liter turbo in it.
  10. The CT should be extended to a "family" of cars like the BMW 1series.....
  11. Looks the same as much more aggresiveness needed. Make it similar to the family of siblings.
  12. I'd like to see a nose closer to the IS.
  13. No, it should look like the Red CT in the picture above. BD
    • Agree---the Red CT photo from BD's comment is what it should look like. Anything less is a miss. This can only push sales into high gear and offer other engine variants to push it into orbit. Many people comment that they would purchase, if offered with other engines.
  14. more finesse and styling like the GX
  15. I hope they do fix the LEDs on this one though. They do not look as good as the other models at all! There is a weird split in them.
  16. i wonder if Lexus is going to do a full family portrait after this update (it'll be my wallpaper) ;)
  17. I like it, but I'm afraid the whole brand image has become ever so slightly too aesthetically synonymous. Front end spindles aren't different enough on some vehicles to clearly distinguish them, just my 2 cents.
  18. This car needs something more.
