Joining the Lexus CT 200h range in the UK is the Advance trim level, which adds on a host of features to the regular SE grade for an extra £500 (RM2,500), these being a new MoveOn integrated navigation system, cruise control, automatic wipers, folding mirrors, reverse camera, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with integrated parking monitor and metallic paint.

The MoveOn system enables access to Live information services (TomTom Local Search, weather forecast, mobile speed cameras and traffic data amongst others) via a built-in 3G SIM card. Access to Live services is free for the first year.

There’s also new Tahara upholstery, which can be had in black or tan. Lexus says Tahara weighs half as much as leather and is less harmful to the environment to make. Celestial Black joins the three metallic paint shades already on the menu as an Advance trim exclusive.

Features such as dual-zone climate control, push button start, Bluetooth, fog lamps, rear privacy glass, 17-inch alloys and a six-speaker audio system with USB are carried over from the SE grade.

The Lexus CT 200h Advance costs a smidgen under £24,500 (RM120k), with first deliveries expected before the end of the year.
