What alternatives should I consider to a used Lexus CT hatchback?
The Hyundai Ioniq is a relatively new car that’s available in three different states of electrification: petrol-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid or as an electric car. The Hybrid model is the closest match for the CT. It's quicker, cheaper to run, better equipped and more practical, but its ride can be firm (although not as bad as the CT’s) and it provides limited head room in the rear.
The Toyota Prius is an iconic petrol-electric hybrid that’s also now available as a plug-in hybrid for increased electric-only driving range. It’s not as quick or as refined as the newer Ioniq, but it's larger and roomier than the CT, as well as generally being cheaper to buy, both new and used.
