    Lexus CT h Consumer Reviews | DARYRECIBIR.CLUB

    Americans love hybrid hatchbacks, but mostly for the hybrid part; overall, we're still lukewarm on traditional hatchbacks.

    Lexus added a third ingredient — budget luxury — to create the CT h. The CT h feels at times like a cut-rate Lexus, but its combination of fuel efficiency and handling should win the brand some much-needed younger buyers.

    The front-wheel-drive CT's styling is the closest yet to Lexus' LF-Gh concept , and it comes in base and Premium trims, which you can compare here. We evaluated a CT h Premium. Thrift Thanks to the drivetrain's immediate thrust, the CT h has adequate oomph for driving solo: It scoots from a stoplight well enough and maintains highway speeds with little trouble.

    But it lacks the reserves to pass on a whim, and barreling up to 60 or 70 mph from an on-ramp runs the poor thing out of steam. And kilowatts, as it were. Confident acceleration should be a given in any luxury car, even an entry-level one. Were it not for the instant power starting out — a characteristic of most hybrids, thanks to their torque -rich electric motors — I'd deem the CT a dog. As it stands, many luxury shoppers will indeed find the Lexus too poky.

    At least the pokiness pays off in gas mileage. The CT has the same 1. Total output for the engine and motor matches the Prius' horsepower , and the CT's EPA-estimated combined mileage is 42 mpg.

    What's more, the CT runs on regular unleaded gas — not the norm for luxury cars. Based on my experience, the EPA figures seem conservative: On a mile highway trip into the wind, I observed With a stiff tailwind on the return leg, another editor reported nearly 60 mpg.

    Temperatures both legs were in the high 40s. Like most full hybrids, the CT can cruise on electric power alone at low speeds. An EV button maximizes the distance it can go on just electric — about a mile, if the hybrid battery is full — but requires featherweight acceleration, low overall speed and a near-comatose driver behind you. Other driving modes include Eco, Normal and Sport; our observed mileage came largely in Normal mode.

    Sport mode hastens drivetrain response and holds engine revs longer. It's enough to give illusions of power around town, but the fun is short-lived. Stand on the gas, and the drivetrain's shallow limits show.

    The steering wheel turns with a light touch at low speeds in Eco and Normal mode, but it wanders too much on the highway. Sport mode dials back the assist, improving feedback and highway stability a great deal. It also relaxes the threshold of the CT's standard stability system , which intervenes smoothly when it must. Alas, there's no way to deactivate the stability system.
