Lexus CT 200h brochure leaks out ahead of Geneva debut

Lexus CT 200h - Click above for image gallery

The World Car Fans crew have received what appears to be an official brochure for the Lexus CT 200h ahead of its reveal next week at the Geneva Motor Show, and while the documents are light on details, we've got our first good glimpse of the brand's Euro-bound hybrid hatch.

The styling has been toned down considerably from the LF-Ch concept that debut in Frankfurt last year, melding a few cues from the IS sedan and a profile remarkably similar to the Toyota Auris.

Coming in at 170 inches long, 69.5 inches wide and 56 inches tall, with a 102-inch wheelbase, the CT 200h is suspended by a MacPherson suspension in front, a double wishbone arrangement in the rear and 17-inch multi-spoke wheels.

Motivation comes courtesy of a 1.8-liter VVT-i-equipped four-cylinder gasoline engine putting out an unspecified output, with a electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission feeding power to the front wheels. A nickel-metal hydride battery pack is mounted below the cargo hold, and three driving modes are available - Eco, Normal and Sport - along with the ability to drive in full EV mode.

We'll have full details on the Lexus CT 200h next week once the shindig in Switzerland gets underway, but until then, check out the brochure in the gallery below.
