Aimed to further strengthen the brand's prowess in the luxury hybrid market, Lexus has launched a facelift version of its highly successful CT200h Hybrid in Singapore.

In line with the marque's motive of pursuing perfection, the 2014 model was developed by a team of more than 1,400 engineers and craftsmen. More notably, the project was headed by Ms. Chika Kako - the first and only female Chief Engineer in Lexus. 

The new car now boasts a more sophisticated exterior design, with an equal amount of attention going into each and every little detail in its cabin. The new hatchback is also more rigid than before, thanks to added spot welding on the chassis. The suspension and shock absorbers have also been reconfigured for a more refined, yet involving drive.

Powering the CT200h is a 1.8-litre four-cylinder unit that churns out 98bhp. Together with the electric motor, the hybrid hatchback has a total system output of 134bhp and 142Nm of torque. What's more remarkable are the fuel consumption and emission figures. The CT200h claims a fuel economy of 24.4km/L, with CO2 emissions of just 95g/km.
