Passive Safety

With a bodyshell which incorporates a high percentage of high tensile sheet steel to combine light weight with maximum rigidity, the Lexus CT 200h has been engineered to achieve the highest safety performance in terms of full-frontal, offset, side and rear collisions.

Beyond securing the safety of its occupants, the new premium compact hybrid has also been designed to offer the best possible pedestrian impact protection.

The new Lexus CT 200h is fitted with eight Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags, as standard: driver and front seat passenger front, knee and side airbags, and side curtain airbags. All front and rear seats feature threepoint, ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) seatbelts. The driver, front passenger and rear outer seatbelts are also equipped with a pre-tensioner and force limiter function.

The new Lexus full hybrid also features the second generation Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) seat concept. The revised system features a new seat back structure and headrest design. The new headrest is designed to sit as close as possible to the passenger's head during normal use, closing the gap between occupant head and headrest in the event of rear impact to significantly reduce the risk of whiplash through excessive head movement.
