Default Thinkkg about a CT

Right now I have a 2001 is300 with 97,000 and I'm really looking to get into a CT I really like the look of it and the MPG is a plus I'm wondering what you guys on club lexus think about going from an is300 to the CT!

It'll definitely be a change in regards to power. The IS 300 (217hp) has ample and more responsive power whereas the CT (134hp) is a bit slower but makes up in mpg's (43 city/ 40 hwy). Your IS 300 might have more space than the CT. You can fit five people in the CT but more comfortably in the IS 300.

I love my CT and purchased it back on March 2011 and have over 70,000 miles. It's a great daily driver and commuter car. Not only will you save on gas but also maintenance. The CT does have a nice sporty look to it.

If you can, keep the IS 300 and get the CT 200h.

The 2001 IS300 is quite small in the back seat. I'd say the CT matches it, or maybe exceeds it.

I assume you don't have the Sport Cross. Then the CT has more cargo space due to folding rear seats, and bigger boot opening.
