Suspension

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, setting a new benchmark in premium compact segment ride comfort and handling stability.

Numerous elements of the front MacPherson strut suspension system have been exclusively developed for the Lexus CT 200h, including the coil spring, shock absorber, bump stop, upper support, and upper and lower insulators, a lightweight steering knuckle, hub and bearing, and a new antiroll bar for increased roll rigidity.

The unique, fully-independent double wishbone rear suspension incorporates a lightweight trailing arm, and positions the coil spring and shock absorber separately to minimise system intrusion into the loadspace floor. It also features numerous exclusively developed components, including the coil spring, shock absorber, upper support, bump stop, hub and bearing, and anti-roll bar.

In combination, these front and rear suspension systems compliment the new CT 200h's two distinct driving moods, combining the class-leading ride comfort essential to a Relaxing driving mood with the handling agility and stability appropriate to a Dynamic driving mood.
