As we discovered the first time we spent a week with one, the Lexus CT 200h is an intriguingly Euro-centric player in the entry tier of the premium market. With a starting price of $29,120 in 2012 (plus $895 for delivery), the CT represents the least expensive way to get into a new Lexus. At that price, it seems like a reasonable choice. For just a few dollars short of $40,000, our test car – a loaded F Sport model, a new trim level for 2012 – lost pretty much all of its value propos
As gas prices continue on a general upward trend (don't get too excited about the recent reprieve) it's common to see MPG numbers flaunted in car ads, especially those promoting hybrids. It's tempting to take those calculations at face value because, frankly, its no fun to spend your time thinking about how much money you're spending on fuel. And really, why shouldn't you trust estimates that are backed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)?
