2016 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2016 Audi A3 Hybrid
Edgy and sporty, the 2016 Lexus CT 200H is a four-door hybrid designed with the overall driving experience in mind. Competitor models may also be on your radar, so how does the 2016 CT 200H stack up against rivals such as the 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron?
Interior & Design
The 2016 Audi A3 exterior shows off the traditional streamlined Audi look. The revamped, aluminum-style interior distinguishes it from past models, but the car suffers from a small backseat and trunk. The exterior of the 2016 Lexus CT 200H includes an aggressively styled front bumper with grille inserts, a rear valance, and a rear spoiler. It has enhanced handling and ride quality due to an upgraded chassis, MacPherson strut front suspension, and a double-wishbone rear suspension. You'll get a luxury impression from the interior, which features an expansive center console with a wide array of features.
Technology & Safety
Lexus’ infotainment system, Enform, is an option available for the 2016 Lexus CT 200H. It provides navigation features with three-dimensional city views, up-to-date traffic alerts, weather, and live navigational support. You can sync Enform to your smartphone for additional benefits, such as locking and unlocking your doors, starting your engine remotely, and locating your car in a parking lot. The 2016 A3s come standard with a new, retractable multimedia interface (MMI) on the console. The 2016 Audi A3 has six airbags and a rearview camera but does not include shock-absorbing driver and passenger seats. On the other hand, the 2016 Lexus CT 200H has many standard safety features that include eight airbags, a tire pressure monitor, traction control, and Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats. Another feature included as standard for the 2016 Lexus CT 200H that is not available for the 2016 Audi A3 is the Vehicle Proximity Notification. This potentially lifesaving development alerts you of pedestrians and cyclists when approaching at low speeds.
When judging fuel efficiency between the two cars by their gasoline miles per gallon averages alone, the 2016 Lexus CT 200H is the superior model. The 2016 CT 200H is a hybrid that runs solely on gasoline and averages 42 miles per gallon combined. The 2016 Audi A3 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle, and when utilizing both electric and gasoline, it can average a rather high MPG. However, when using only gasoline, it merely averages a combined 35 miles per gallon. If you’re looking for convenience without the plug-in aspect, the CT 200H should be your choice.
The 2016 Lexus CT 200H outranks its competitors, even the lauded 2016 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron. The included technology and safety features of the 2016 CT 200H cannot be ignored and outshine the 2016 Audi A3’s similar standard offerings. Additionally, when you're on trips, you won't always be able to plug in your hybrid, so you'll want a car model that gets better mileage using gasoline.
