Is the Lexus CT any good?

It seems like a fantastic idea to create an upscale, sporty hybrid that is Lexus-level reliable. Although the CT 200h is a decent vehicle, it falls short of the Lexus standards for refinement. The CT is powered by the same four-cylinder, 134-hp hybrid engine as the Prius and gets 40 mpg.

Why did Lexus discontinue the CT 200h?

The reason for the CT’s demise is simple: sales or lack thereof. According to Good Car Bad Car, Lexus sold only 8,903 CTs in 2016 in the U.S. and 2,486 this year so far in the U.S. while just 546 CTs and 160 CTs were found homes in Canada in 2016/2017, respectively.
