I wish they would make the CT with 2 options, CT200h and the CT300h...or just drop the CT200h altogether

facelift looks nice, complete spindle grill...I like that they ditched the older headlights with the LED strip that's cut off by the projector for this more fluid approach.

All F-Sport CT's will come with a black roof standard. Lexus took a look at what CT guys were modding and took that into consideration

"Black roof" as in just a painted black roof? That's kinda... weak. Lexus should know that the real reason the CT guys were modding their cars that way was to mimic the look of an actual panoramic roof, so why not give it the real thing?

car looks great... i agree that they should add an option of 300h powertrain to it... 220hp would make it go well.

heck, even adding D4S to the 200h would add some 10hp and make it nicer.

i also hope they did some updates to the interior as well.

if they make the sunroof itself larger (length wise) and had the roof black, I'd be just as happy as with a panoramic roof option

but i do agree...just a black roof only to mimic a design

IMO the black roof looks great but...I wouldn't want it in a hot/sunny climate area.

I like the black roof. Looks much better, and you don't have to get it wrapped / painted!

It's a good, well-built, reliable small semi-luxury hatchback, but, IMO, needs some revisions.........softer supension/tires, more sound-insulation in the wheel-wells, a better video-screen control than that silly console-mouse, and a larger rear window and wiper for better visibility. Now's their chance, if they are going to redesign it, to address those problems.

It has nice interior materials (particularly the Nuluxe imitation leather, which IMO is as good as the real stuff), but doesn't ride and drive like a proper Lexus.
