Lexus apes Audi's cabin quality and, more regrettably, Audi's ride quality

Good stuff

Decent spec and quality, along with impressive economy

Bad stuff

Poorly judged ride/handling combination, only one engine option

Overview

What is it?

The smallest, cheapest Lexus you can buy. Ostensibly, it’s a rival for the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series, though, unlike the dizzying array of engine and trim options available from the Germans, Lexus offers the CT in few specifications. And there’s only one engine. That happens to be a 1.8-litre petrol- electric hybrid system – pretty much the same as in Toyota’s Prius. The Lexus looks more conventional than the Prius, but it’s still a bit of a left-field choice.

What's the verdict?

To call this a posh Prius may sound a little harsh, but that’s what it is.
