Prices sit in the £23,500 to £31,500 bracket and there's a choice of 'SE', 'SE Plus Pack', 'Luxury', 'F Sport', 'F Sport Premier Pack' and 'Premier' trim levels. The 'F-Sport' version doesn't get any mechanical changes but has been upgraded with performance dampers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and Lexus Navigation. Even the base 'SE' model features dual-zone air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, a Drive Mode Select system, a reversing camera, a six speaker audio system and a seven-inch Lexus Media Display infotainment set-up with rotary controller.
Safety-wise, the CT adopts the Lexus Safety System+ package on all versions above 'SE' grade, a set of active safety features that can help prevent or mitigate collisions in a wide range of traffic situations. Its advanced technology features include a Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Lane Keep Assist, Automatic High Beam and Road Sign Assist. Otherwise, a 5 star Euro NCAP showing is justified by the inclusion of no fewer than eight airbags, including knee protection for driver and passengers. Plus of course, it goes without saying that the CT has the full complement of electronic braking, stability and traction controls.
