2018 Lexus CT 200h Exterior Redesign
The new 2018 Lexus CT 200h will be based on the same 4th generation Toyota Prius platform. A notable change will be a replacement in the form of a new chassis. The chassis in question is known as TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture). With this brand new chassis, the new CT 200h is expected to be substantially lighter, and much easier to handle. Since the CT is an older design, the new car will receive a number of stylistic changes. The Lexus aims to slightly reshape the car, so as to resemble its latest offerings. The upcoming model will feature a noticeably sleeker look, with striking lines and athletic cues. This company hopes to achieve this look with sharp-looking headlights, and boomerang-shaped LED running lights. The another change will include a new, redesigned spindle chrome grille, based on the models found on the RX and NX models.

The majority of interior changes come in the form of new equipment features. This new car will be equipped with a new Lexus Enform Remote suite, that includes an IOS and Android App. This app will allow the driver to remotely unlock and lock the doors, adjust climate controls, locate the vehicle at a parking lot, as well as start/stop the engine. The Enform suite can also inform the driver with scheduled maintenance alerts, and warning lights. Other notable features include a moonroof, a navigational system, and a Siri Eyes Free voice recognition.
