Dec 13, 2012– Melbourne, Australia (Techreleased) – Lexus Australia has added greater levels of standard specification to its popular CT 200h hybrid hatch just in time for Christmas.
The Prestige model now boasts advanced Bluetooth™* including enhanced iPod®^ functionality (on some iPods), Drive Mode Select linked tachometer and instrument lighting (which changes from red to blue depending on drive mode) and electrically retractable mirrors – making these features standard across the entire CT Line.
The additional specification on the Prestige model has been delivered to consumers at no additional cost – with the CT 200h range starting from $39,990**.
Additionally, CT 200h models receive digital radio (DAB+)# and two new colours – White Nova (on F Sport models) and Premium Silver.
Models featuring satellite navigation have been updated to feature a hard drive based system in place of DVD based navigation, live traffic alerts and new user interface graphics+.
F Sport and Sport Luxury models receive additional specification including electronically adjustable passenger seats. Mark Levinson audio is now available as standard on Sport Luxury models and part of an enhancement pack incorporating parking sonar and moon roof for F Sport models.
Driving dynamics have not been forgotten with revisions to suspension setup, specifically shock absorbers, across the range – for improved ride compliance.
Lexus Australia chief executive Tony Cramb said that the substantial improvements bring the CT 200h range in line with recently launched models and respond to tightening road rules.
“CT 200h’s additional specification enhances what is already a compelling package and once again provides significant additional specification over our competitors as standard,” said Mr Cramb.
