4. Lexus CT 200h
There are few choices when it comes to compact luxury vehicles, and even fewer if you want one with a hatchback and good cargo space. The CT 200h delivers all of that plus a sporty driving experience that is highly unusual for hybrids. The upscale interior features controls that are angled toward the driver. Several design elements look futuristic, such as the gearshift that is mounted high and the Remote Touch controller that allows the driver to navigate the infotainment system quickly. Of course the Lexus CT 200h also dominates its market segment when it comes to fuel mileage at an estimated 43 mpg in the city, 40 mpg on the highway and 42 mpg combined.
