As for the extra equipment, this includes cruise control, F-Sport black leather upholstery, heated front seats, electric driver’s seat adjustment, auto-dimming (electrochromatic) electrically retractable door mirrors and a rear parking camera that links to a display in the rear-view mirror.
This isn’t some stickers and sunroof version of the hybrid, as Lexus has also stiffened the suspension for a more engaging drive, and fitted its lateral damping system as standard. Coil spring rates have been changed and the standard Showa shock absorbers replaced with Kayaba dampers that give more sports-oriented performance. The lateral dampers will help minimise body vibrations, leading to a more linear steering feel and rewarding driving experience, as well as greater comfort for everyone on board.
The F-Sport grade for the CT 200h is already available for order now, with deliveries in the UK to take place starting January 2012.
