2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-in Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius Plug-in than the Lexus CT 200h, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus CT 200h and the Toyota Prius Plug-in 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 Toyota Prius Plug-in, 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). The Lexus CT 200h is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius Plug-in. 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 Plug-in.

Dimensions
The Lexus CT 200h is a little wider than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Lexus CT 200h is slightly shorter than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius Plug-in, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Lexus CT 200h and the Toyota Prius Plug-in.

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 Plug-in.

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 Plug-in.
