Like most small hybrids the CT200h had a level of performance that wouldn’t excite any real car enthusiasts, but there really was more than adequate power for the average driver. When we really wanted to get somewhere, we sacrificed our fuel economy and peeled out into traffic with ease. We’re hoping someone, maybe even Lexus, will be able to fix the traction control for better winter performance in the future, because we really were ready to fall for this little beauty. It’s small, but it’s packed with all the quiet luxury of some much less eco-friendly vehicles. If you’re looking for a green hatchback, just pack up and move to Florida so you can own a CT200h.
