UPDATE: Lexus Malaysia called to inform us that the wheels on the CT200h F Sport specified for Malaysia is a 16-inch version, and not the 17-incher as found in many markets. It’s still a dark-finish type unit.

Lexus Malaysia has announced that a third variant of the CT200h hybrid has joined the ZWA10R lineup in the country – the F Sport version finally arrives in town, priced at RM206,877 on-the-road with insurance.

The car, which made its debut two years ago in Sydney, features external styling enhancements made up of a bodykit and 16-inch dark-finish alloy wheels. Elements include new aero-styled front and rear bumpers, a mesh front grille, a larger rear spoiler and flared side skirts.

Inside, there’s an F-Sport steering wheel with a flat bottom section, as well as aluminium pedals and scuff plates. Also on, a sportier suspension (as found on the CT200h Luxury variant, according to Lexus Malaysia) featuring coils with revised spring rates and uprated Kayaba shocks.

No mechanical changes in store – the F Sport utilises the same 2ZR-FXE 1.8 Atkinson cycle four-cylinder petrol block and rear-mounted electric-drive motor/generator system, with an electronically-controlled CVT driving the front wheels.

Aside from the introduction of the CT200h F Sport, Lexus Malaysia has also announced that the CT200h base and CT200h Luxury versions have received some kit upgrades. The CT200h now features power folding mirrors as well as Bluetooth functionality in its audio system. It continues to be priced at RM168,000.

As for the CT200h Luxury, the RM202,899 offering now comes with a four-way power adjustment driver’s seat (replete with three seat position memory setting) and a DVD player with the Lexus Premium 10-speaker audio system. Also new, a hard-disk GPS navigation system with an Electro Multi Vision (EMV) screen.
