2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus CT 200h and the Nissan 370Z in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus CT 200h as you will with the Nissan 370Z, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Lexus CT 200h will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan 370Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lexus CT 200h is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus CT 200h is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus CT 200h, which is slightly longer than the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
The Lexus CT 200h has much less torque than the Nissan 370Z, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h has a larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus CT 200h is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Lexus CT 200h more than the Nissan 370Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus CT 200h than that of the Nissan 370Z.
