2016 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2016 Toyota Prius Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Lexus CT 200h than in the Toyota Prius, due to the Lexus CT 200h's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus CT 200h, drivers may find the Toyota Prius a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Toyota Prius requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus CT 200h, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Lexus CT 200h is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius. 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 Toyota Prius.

Dimensions
The Lexus CT 200h is about the same width as the Toyota Prius. The Lexus CT 200h is slightly shorter than the Toyota Prius, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Lexus CT 200h and the Toyota Prius do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus CT 200h is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Prius.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus CT 200h and the Toyota Prius.

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