Default 2012 Lexus CT200h gets the F-Sport package in US




Quote:
F-Sport package will include mesh grill, 17-inch high gloss wheels and a tuned suspension

Toyota USA has announced full details on the new Lexus CT200h, which also gets an optional F-Sport Package for the 2012 model year.
First revealed late last year in Australia, the F-Sport package for the CT200h takes its cues from the Lexus F Sport Performance accessories and included a tuned suspension, 17-inch high-gloss rims, mesh front grille, leather steering wheel and shift knob, aluminum sport pedals and metallic dash trim. Trim offerings for the seats are the Black NuLuxe or perforated black leather.
Other changes to the standard CT200h offering include a new exterior color, Nebula Gray Pearl, which replaces Smoky Granite Mica.
The 2012 Lexus CT200h also gets a new pedestrian warning system (Vehicle Proximity Notification System) which regulators are looking to make mandatory in the United States.

You know, I'm not usually the one to diss a car based on its straight line performance, but isn't this just a tad too much for a car that takes more than 10 seconds to do 0-60?

more aggressive looks and still no go...



It's pretty sad that they could have dropped the TC drivetrain in that car and had a car that was faster, sportier, cheaper and with more cargo room than the current car while still getting respectable mileage (better than any other I.C.E. Lexus for sure). I thought the whole point was to get younger buyers into the brand, but apparently the primary focus was Europe where reduced CO2 emissions matter. The U.S. is just an experimental secondary market for this car.

I like this car. Damn shame the drivetrain stinks. Give me 225HP and a stick shift option.

These look great going down the road, and while the performance sucks, you forget it is a Lexus, which are bought as appliances, albeit nice ones. So the straight line performance means very little.

I love this car for what it is, constantly having to defend it when talking to a buddy of mine about hybrids but I think his idea of hybrid is a KERS system.

My wife is more than likely going to have one of these soon. Most of the people on the forums are seeing 45+ mpg on average.
