2012 Lexus CT 200h Lets You Know it's Coming

Lexus launched the CT 200h, it’s fifth hybrid last year and now for its second model year Lexus has made one change that benefits people outside of the vehicle more than the driver.

The 2012 Lexus CT 200h gets a a new Vehicle Proximity Notification System that helps alert pedestrians and cyclists of an oncoming vehicle under certain conditions by emitting a low audible warning sound. I guess you won’t be able to sneak up on people anymore…

Lexus is also adding on new exterior color, Nebula Gray Pearl, which replaces Smoky Granite Mica.

The CT 200h is powered by a 1.8L engine mated to an electric motor. The powertrain puts out 134 horsepower and accelerates the CT 200h from 0-60 mph in 9.8 seconds. The CT 200h gets 43 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.
