Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The 2014 Lexus CT200h facelift was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show and the Guangzhou Motor Show this week.
The biggest change to the facelift is the fitment of the spindle grille that all new Lexus models sport. The vehicle can be had with either 16- or 17-inch alloys with a 10-spoke design, and a shark fin-like roof antenna.
The rear features a revised bumper that is horizontally designed with a black centre section. The body is offered in 6 colour options, with 6 colour options available for the contrast roof.
Moving indoors, the 2014 CT200h receives a new steering wheel, a 4.2-inch multimedia screen and a second-gen Remote Touch Interface that is claimed to be more driver-friendly. The stereo is upgraded, with the speakers receiving bamboo technology.
Rear view camera, intuitive parking assistant, traction control with ‘off’ button, and a tyre pressure sensor are some of the new gadgets on-board the 2014 model.
Lexus have increased the rigidity of the 2014 CT200h’s body, with suspension updates and aerodynamic alterations. The drivetrain remains the same, with power tapped from a 1.8-liter petrol engine matched to an electric motor, developing 134 hp.
