Lexus CT200h running costs look great on paper. Economy claims from Lexus for the CT are high, with the CT 200h S apparently able to achieve 78.5mpg on the combined cycle. However, flick the lever in to the Sport mode or push it that little bit extra and you are unlikely to reach these kinds of figures. Expect to pay a bit of a premium when it comes to any servicing or maintenance, but for your extra cash you do get excellent customer service.
This is the main focus of the entry-level Lexus. With Lexus CT200h emissions of just 82g/km you’ll pay no road tax, no showroom tax and even be exempt from the London congestion charge.
Lexus has enjoyed an excellent reputation for reliability and build quality, however, a number of recalls in the UK and USA has seen the manufacturer’s status tainted somewhat. Despite this, Lexus CT200h reliability should prove to be good since it's a robust and well-built vehicle.

How much is it to insure?
Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered before 01 March 2001 it is based on engine size. For cars registered on or after 01 March 2001 the VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions.
