2014 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2014 Lexus CT 200h Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Volt offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus CT 200h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Volt and the Lexus CT 200h in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus CT 200h, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Volt is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus CT 200h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Lexus CT 200h.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Volt is a little wider than the Lexus CT 200h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Volt, which is slightly longer than the Lexus CT 200h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Volt does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus CT 200h.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a larger turning radius than the Lexus CT 200h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus CT 200h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Volt has less seating than the Lexus CT 200h, making the Lexus CT 200h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Volt is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus CT 200h.
