The steering is nicely weighted and very quick off-center, but it offers zilch in the way of feedback.
by Car and Driver (May, 2011)
The steering effort is higher in sport mode, which is good, because it’s light and inert in the other settings.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Handling

If there's a clear forte in the CT's portfolio, it's the well-sorted handling.
by AutoBlog (Apr, 2011)
Ride quality is much firmer than we've come to expect from Lexus, but not objectionably so – even on Detroit's post-apocalyptic road surfaces.
by AutoBlog (Apr, 2011)
These Yamaha-made items are actually suspension turret-braces, but constructed as very high-pressure gas dampers instead of being solid.
by EVO (Dec, 2010)

Powertrain

But the controls are cleanly laid out, and amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio, and pushbutton start are standard.
by Car and Driver (Oct, 2010)
As for the CT’s hybrid credentials, rarely did we motor without the gas engine aiding our propulsion.
by Car and Driver (May, 2011)
We appreciate the shift lever that looks like a chrome version of the handle a Boeing 747 captain pulls to extinguish a fire in engine four, but bright spots like this largely serve to illuminate the shortcomings of the surfaces around them.
by Car and Driver (May, 2011)

Performance

In the real world, the CT200h offers three driving modes: Eco has a very lazy throttle map, normal is slightly less lethargic, and sport is, well, still sluggish.
by Car and Driver (Oct, 2010)
In short, with the CT, Lexus is suggesting it isn't ready to throw in the organic cotton towel on performance just yet.
by AutoBlog (Apr, 2011)
As you'd expect, there's also plenty of tech underhood, where a 98-horsepower 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder is augmented by an electric motor whirring up 80 more ponies and 152 pound-feet of torque with juice from a Ni-MH battery.

Interior

For $29,995, the basic CT200h package has a load of equipment you’d expect of a Lexus: faux leather—“looks and feels like leather to driver and passengers but is manufactured with the environment in mind,” according to Lexus—satellite radio, a tilting-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, and power windows and locks, among other gear.
by Car and Driver (May, 2011)
The trio of analog gauges are concise and handsomely backlit, and the leather-wrapped wheel is right-sized, although the three spokes seem annoyingly and needlessly thick.
by AutoBlog (Apr, 2011)
To unlock the rest of the options list, buyers must opt for the CT200h Premium, which adds a sunroof, heated seats, and $1780 to the bottom line.
by Car and Driver (May, 2011)

Transmission

But the controls are cleanly laid out, and amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio, and pushbutton start are standard.
by Car and Driver (Oct, 2010)
Brake progression and pedal feel issued by the discs (10-inch vented in front, 11-inch solid out back) is good by hybrid standards, though at very low speeds – say, 0-3 mph when you're negotiating a tight parking space – it's got a bit of the binary 'on/off' nonlinearity that plagues other regenerative braking system.
by AutoBlog (Apr, 2011)
In that same vein, Lexus, you haven’t built a sporty car if it has a CVT and doesn’t offer an option to manually lock in ratios, even fake ones.
