Lexus has added a new Advance variant to the Golf-rivalling CT200h line-up.

Lexus has added a new Advance variant to the Golf-rivalling CT200h line-up. It slots in to the range just above SE models but gets sat-nav, cruise control and a reversing camera thrown in for only £500 more than the SE car.

Buyers of the Advance will be the first Lexus customers to get a new MoveOn sat-nav system that enables drivers to download updates on mobile speed camera locations, traffic updates and weather forecasts. It’ll be free for the first year but you’ll have to pay an annual subscription after that.

As well as all the new standard kit the Advance gets the same equipment as a standard SE, including 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth and dual-zone climate control. And while MoveOn sat-nav comes as standard, DAB digital radio is an optional extra.

Buyers will also get a new artificial leather material that Lexus calls Tahara. The company claims its durable, weighs half as much as traditional leather and generates 65 per cent less CO2 in its production.

The Lexus CT200h is a family hatchback sized model aimed at cars like the Volkswagen Golf, Audi A3 and Mercedes A-Class. Unlike those cars, it’s only available as a hybrid, with fuel economy of 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 94g/km.

The CT200h Advance is available to order now, with prices starting from £24,495. There are four different metallic paint options to choose from, including a Celestial Black shade that is available only on the Advance.
