2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport

Submitted by on December 8, 2011 – 3:17 pmNo Comment

For 2012, Lexus will crank up the performance of its Lexus CT 200h with the addition of an optional F Sport package available only on the Premium version of the hybrid hatch. The Lexus CT 200h F Sport gets a revised body kit with a meshed-out front grille, 17-inch high-gloss alloy wheels, metal front scuff plates, a perforated leather steering wheel, leather shift knob, aluminum pedals, optional perforated leather seats and some metallic trim on the dash. Lexus says the F Sport package also includes a re-tuned suspension, but there’s nothing here in the way of powertrain improvements.

When designing the look of the 2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport, engineers paid careful attention in combining elements of elegance and excitement into the car. What that entailed was finding a compromise between the two and creating a design that speaks of the embodiment of the spirit of the model.

The Lexus CT 200h F-Sport is powered by the advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system that features a unique energy management system paired with a four-cylinder gas engine. Lexus opted to go with an Atkinson-cycle engine design to be able to fully maximize the system’s high efficiency and compatibility with hybrid operation in the Lexus CT 200h F-Sport. The engine comes with a 3.17-inch bore diameter and 3.48-inch stroke with a high compression ratio of 13.0:1. On its own, the engine is capable of producing an output of 98 horsepower, but when combined with the two-motor hybrid drive motor, the output shoots all the way up to 134 horsepower with a 0-60 mph time of 9.8 seconds.

Lexus has tuned the Lexus CT 200h F-Sport’s suspension for a more engaging drive, and fitted its lateral damping system as standard. Coil spring rates have been changed and the standard Showa shock absorbers replaced with Kayaba dampers that give more sports-oriented performance. The new Lexus CT 200h F-Sport is available to order now, with first UK deliveries in January. On-the-road prices are from £27,850.
