Lexus has introduced a high-specification Advance model to the CT200h range, bringing additional equipment and impressive value.
The Advance slots into the CT200h line-up just above the regular SE grade model and brings with it a new integrated satellite navigation system, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, a folding function for the electrically adjustable door mirrors, reversing camera, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated parking monitor and metallic paint. Despite the extra equipment with these extra features, its on-the-road price is just an additional £500 compared to the SE, at £24,495.
The Advance also introduces Tahara, a supple and durable new upholstery that is an attractive alternative to leather. It weighs half as much leather and is less harmful to the environment to make, generating 65 per cent less CO2 and no potentially damaging volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The new model also introduces the MoveOn navigation system, which can be operated using a touch pad integrated in the centre console below the gear selector. Move On also enables access to Live information services, using a 3G connection to a SIM card that is built into the system, avoiding the need for a mobile phone link.
Customers enjoy free access for the first year to the Live services, which include TomTom Local Search, weather forecast, mobile speed cameras and HD traffic data. Thereafter an annual subscription is payable.
The Lexus CT200h Advance is available to order now with a price tag of £24,495, with first deliveries to customers before the end of 2012.
