Luxury in a Hybrid Hatchback – The Lexus CT
The Fuel-Efficient, Performance Hybrid
With Lexus, the theme is forward-thinking, and the CT is a fine example of that with its Exhaust Gas Recirculation system. The system works during the engine combustion process, capturing and repurposing exhaust gas and making the CT’s engine that much more efficient. You get more mileage this way, and you’ll appreciate not having to go to the station so often for a fill-up. And the forward-thinking philosophy doesn’t stop there; the Exhaust Heat-Recovery system helps warm the engine more quickly when the weather is cold.
Thanks to the Drive Mode Select feature, you get the ability to choose between four driving modes, including the EV mode which operates on only the battery. But if you want thrilling throttle and quick steering responses, go with Sport mode and enjoy!
Comfort and Design
Individualized climate control? Yes, actually, with the 2017 Lexus CT. Dashboard settings let the driver and passenger select their own preferred temperatures, and the heated front seats frequently monitor and adjust heating levels to keep you and your passenger cozy warm.
The cockpit is driver-inspired with bolstered front sport seats positioned for a low center of gravity. The seatback folds for a 60/40-split, and you’ll be able to keep your cargo safely hidden away thanks to a retractable, removable cargo area tonneau cover.
Families tend to love the Lexus CT, especially because of the Lexus Memory System that lets them personalize and recall individualized settings for the driver’s seat, steering wheel, and mirrors. Passengers enjoy the benefits of this feature too!
