Electric Power Steering (EPS)
The Lexus CT 200h is equipped with Electric Power Steering (EPS), its energy saving and lightweight design characteristics making it ideally suited for use in conjunction with the Lexus Hybrid Drive powertrain. Powered by the hybrid battery, EPS improves fuel economy by consuming power only when steering force assistance is needed. It is highly durable and requires no hydraulic fluid.
With a quick ratio of 14.6:1 and just 2.7 turns lock-to-lock, the Lexus CT 200h's speed-sensitive EPS is also the most direct steering in the Lexus model range. Steering precision is further improved through the mounting of the gearbox directly to the suspension subframe for greater installation rigidity, promoting enhanced driver feedback and a more linear steering feel.
When SPORT drive mode is selected, the EPS is modified to provide sportier driving dynamics. The system automatically governs the amount of steering assistance to offer more direct steering feedback and a more involving driving experience.
