Lexus hybrid hatchback has been updated for 2017, including the addition of two new trim levels and revised standard equipment elsewhere

The Lexus CT 200h has been updated, with the addition of new Sport and Executive Edition trim levels, and a raft of upgrades elsewhere in the range.The

The new CT 200h Sport and Executive Edition trims both cost £23,745, which is £1750 above the entry-level S trim. In addition to that trim's standard equipment, Sport gets a reversing camera, sat-nav, rear privacy glass and black 17in alloys. Lexus claims that this version is aimed at younger customers.

A new £2500 Sport Plus pack combines parking sensors, keyless entry, heated front seats and a sunroof, along with a black painted roof.

The Executive Edition gets cruise control, sat-nav and grey 17in alloys over the standard specification. The new editions compete in price and position with the BMW 116d Sport and SE respectively for the CT 200h Sport and Executive Editions, as well as the lower end of the Infiniti Q30 range.

Elsewhere in the range, Lexus has reduced the price of its premium sat-nav system by £345, so it now costs £1650, and on all cars but the entry-level CT 200h S, a reversing camera now comes as standard.

Two new paint colours are available: shades of metallic blue and brown, while Advance spec cars now have red or blue cloth upholstery options.

The updated CT 200h is on sale now, and first deliveries are slated for the beginning of November.

This is a disgrace.

But have they done anything about the appalling ride? I test drove one last year and found the ride so hard. Very different from the IS300H. I notice they are still very pricey when one looks at the specs. The satnav is very expensive. On the NX it was almost £1000 on a car that was priced north of £30k. Undoubtedly good cars (I really liked the IS but wouldn't buy one because there was no spare wheel).

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.
