2014 Lexus CT 200h With Spindle Grille

For 2013, Lexus updated the CT 200h with things like new integrated satellite navigation system, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, a folding function for the electrically adjustable door mirrors, reversing camera, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated parking monitor and metallic paint.
However, the CT is still one of the very few cars they offer that still doesn't have the spindle grille, which is a shame, considering the depth of those air intakes and the L-shaped headlights that flank the grille are what attract so many people to the Lexus brand nowadays.

Rumor has it the 2014 model year to debut late this year will give the CT 200h what it needs. Japanese magazine Mag-X has put together a rendering of what the update might turn the compact hybrid hatch into. The same publication says the new look will make its debut on December 13th this year.

When we tested the 2012 Lexus CT 200h, we found that it was surprisingly agile and sporty yet beautifully silent inside the cabin. Maybe this look will finally get the hybrid car recognition with BMW 1 Series and Audi A3 buyers.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
