DYNAMIC PACKAGE

The new Lexus CT 200h has been specifically developed to combine superior handling and a rewarding driving experience with the ride comfort expected of any Lexus.

The Lexus CT 200h benefits from a new platform incorporating numerous, exclusively developed body, chassis and Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain control system engineering applications designed to offer customers a choice of two distinct driving moods - Dynamic, or Relaxing - in conjunction with the full hybrid's EV, ECO, NORMAL and SPORT, 'on-demand' drive modes.

Focusing on every aspect of the Lexus CT 200h's bodyshell construction, Lexus engineers have developed both Dynamic and Relaxing driving moods through achieving the lowest possible centre of gravity, the optimisation of the body rigidity, and the reduction of NVH levels.

Introduced for the first time on a Lexus, a unique lateral performance damper system has been designed to absorb and minimise body vibrations to offer a more linear steering feel and further enhanced ride comfort.

Setting a new benchmark in premium compact segment ride comfort and handling, the Lexus CT 200h features a bespoke suspension design which combines an L-arm type MacPherson strut front system with a new, fullyindependent double wishbone and trailing arm architecture to the rear.
