Historically, hybrids have been known for having certain strengths. Of course, fuel economy is one of them. But engaging handling? Not so much. These days, though, there are models on the market that are more ambitious, promising great mileage sweetened with a somewhat sportier driving experience. One such model is the Lexus CT 200h.
The Lexus CT 200h shares its hybrid powertrain with the Toyota Prius. The main distinction here is that the sporty-looking CT 200h is designed specifically for better handling, with a low stance and revised suspension. Still, the Lexus CT 200h's chief asset is exceptional fuel economy. There is reasonable luggage room and the CT's hatchback configuration (with folding rear seats) makes for cargo-carrying flexibility that other small entry-level luxury sedans can't match.
