Back in 2011, when America was still reeling from the Great Recession, the thought of a small hybrid car capable of 40+ MPG was hugely appealing. Lexus also styled the CT200h well. Take both those factors into consideration, and the CT200h should be a strong seller. However, due to falling gas prices, fuel mileage isn’t as much a sticking point as it was six years ago. Despite receiving a facelift for the 2017 model year, the CT hasn’t seen its sales rebound.
