5 years old this month and hasn’t missed a beatF Sport (2011-2023)
This is the best car I’ve owned. Sure it’s one of the most expensive new cars I’ve purchased too, but in this case, you get what you pay for. I’ve loved my leather seats and sporty styling that seems ageless. Mine is a hybrid, which seemed useful when I bought her but is now essential for the 25k trip in to work each day. Runs on the smell of an oily rag but looks a million bucks. The other thing I love is the service. The Lexus “loan” cars and cleaning in every service continues even after warranty period has ended. The only down side is the a... Read moreudio visuals and comms - no Apple Play on the input screen. This is unfortunate! In addition, although it boasts 4.1 L/100 in the marketing material, I have never achieved this in all the years of trying. 5.1 is as good as I could manage between filling up. Regardless, it’s still very economical and I love this car I do not want to trade it in! Highly recommended.
Unexpectedly goodSports Luxury (2011-2023)
Have had this car a couple of weeks now and really enjoying driving it. I have had several Lexus cars over the years and all were great cars but didn't really know what to expect with this model but it has been great. A genuine luxury small hatch, and according to the stat's one of the most frugal and reliable cars on the planet.Show details

This is my first car and honestly couldn't have asked for a better one. All the modes drive really well nd its fuel efficiency is amazing. Real smooth driving couldn't ask for moreShow details
Beautiful car. Comfortable, smooth and quiet.CT200h (2011-2023)
I seriously love my Lexus CT200. I have seen a lot of review of it being underpowered, slow and dull but I want to tell you a few things. For starters, it's really not THAT slow at all. I have been driving mine around a and the acceleration pickup is actually pretty decent. Yes there are faster cars out there but I truly honestly believe the pick up is ample. How fast do you really want to go? Its so quiet and comfortable and the fuel economy is outstanding, its almost like the fuel gauge refuses to move! The rear seats are quite small space wi... Read morese but there's enough for it to be OK. The boot space is quite small compared to other hatchbacks but there is plenty for us and our needs. We fitted in over $200 worth of shopping with no problems. I test drove an Audi A3 before choosing this car and to be perfectly honest, the A3 was nice but I find this car just perfect for us. Very happy we chose it. Lexus customer service has been amazing and they couldn't do enough for us. Fantastic buy. Very happy :)
Good for price!CT200h (2011-2023)
Have bought it for $25000 2nd hand a couple years ago. It's great for it's price! Being a hybrid, it consumes a lot less fuel compared to our other car. However, it does not have much power and accelerates slowly up hills. Its "sport" mode does not make too much of a difference either.Show details
OK if you drive 20,000km a year or lessCT200h (2011-2023)
Comfortable to drive and handles well but has problems. Head gasket needed replacenwnt at 60,000km. Hybrid system needed replacement at 200,000km. One major recall. All these took me off the road.
Environmentally responsible vehicle for low kms but not for high kms. Most problematic car I've ever had (except 1977 Galante which was worse).
Fantasically economical. Satnav is unworkable, but useful to pinpoint location. Servicing was efficient and friendly
Great car except few draw-backs due to being HybridCT200h (2011-2023)
It has a low acceleration to be called a Sports car but handling is good and has very low noise.
Interior is great and has good quality material. The hybrid systems battery does not leave much space in the boot. The navigation system is also not comparable to what you get from your phone. But this is almost true about all cars these days.
The car is seriously reliable and low fuel consumption.
The sound system is amazing and seats are great. The radar cruse control works well.
Great two person carCT200h (2011-2023)
We are retired and bought the Lexus CT200h luxury we were after the sport luxury but had to wait too long so we settled on the luxury with two packages to nearly bring it up to sports luxury. it doesn't have the sunroof or sport seats or better stereo but that's fine we are very happy with it but there is very limited room in the back seat granddaughter 15 complained there wasn't enough room in back seat behind the driver as my husband has the seat right back love the features and benefits of a Lexus owner pickup and replacement car for servicing and free clean once a month but we haven't used this yet as the link they sent us doesn't workShow details
Navigation system rip offCT200h (2011-2023)
I am very unhappy about the Lexus Navigation system and this would seriously stop me from buying another Lexus.
I purchased a Lexus CT200h in November 2015 from Sydney City Lexus. At the time of purchase the navigation maps were out of date (version25-34-17 dated 01-06-2014). I only realised the maps were out of date once I got the car home. I was really surprised at this given that it was a brand new car and I proceeded to get in touch with the sales agent straight away to inquire about getting an update. The agent assured me this would be ta
Great car to drive excellent fuel efficiencyCT200h (2011-2023)
I purchased this car in Jan 2016 for a city car. The car is very comfortable and excellent to drive. Made for 4 comfortable. Easy to park, but amazing fuel efficiency for city driving. Most petrol cars use 11 L and above in city driving below 20 km/ hour this does 5.9. I only fill up once a month now. Excellent pick up, if in sports mode.
Would be better if a bit more leg room in back. Otherwise great car!
Very nice but very small bootCT200h (2011-2023)
Nice to drive but a very shallow boot due to the battery for the electric component I understand.
The car is also very low and the passenger door frequently hits the gutter on opening on its underside. Also the front of the car also hits the low concrete bars in carparks sometimes. The Nav sat is also not that easy to program. The sound system and air conditioning is excellent. Seats comfortable.

In summary, a luxury car to keep me comfortable driving everyday w competitive price n fun to drive
