Lexus introduced its CT 200h as a brand new model only last year, but now the F Sport range of accessories for the CT 200h hybrid hatchback that we saw in concept form last October is finally ready for sale. This ‘range of accessories’ comes as a pack that includes stiffer F-Sport suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels and some cosmetics.
The new pack comes with some updated for the cabin including metal scuff plates, a perforated leather steering wheel and shift knob, metallic trim, and aluminum pedals.
Beside this, the 2012 Lexus CT 200h also brings with it an audible warning system, which helps alert pedestrians and cyclists of an oncoming vehicle under certain conditions by emitting a low audible warning sound. In addition, the car maker also chose a new color (Nebula Gray Pearl) to replace the existing Smoky Granite Mica tone.
For next year the powertrain remains the same, consisting of a 1.8-liter engine matched to Toyota’s hybrid synergy drive system. Combined output of the two reaches 134 horsepower, good for a 0-60 mph time of 9.8 seconds.
Below you can see the full list of changes brought about by the F Sport package:
-17-inch wheels with high-gloss finish and F-Sport wheel cap
-Aluminum sport pedals
-Black NuLuxe trimmed seats or perforated black leather-trimmed seats with white perforation holes
