These are the first official images with the mildly facelifted 2014 Lexus CT200h which we already saw about a month ago courtesy of some brochure scans.

There's not a lot to talk about in terms of styling changes as the only significant update is the adoption of the corporate spindle grille that now has a more generous lower opening. We also notice the lightly revised front and rear bumpers, along with a fresh design for the alloy wheels.

Technical specifications have not been released but we expect to find the same 98 bhp (73 kW) 1.8-liter gasoline engine teamed up with an 80 bhp (60 kW) electric motor, resulting in a combined output of 134 bhp (100 kW). The car will probably do 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 9.8 seconds before topping out at 112 mph (180 km/h).

Lexus has announced the 2014 CT200h will be fully revealed on November 21 in China at the 2013 Guangzhou Motor Show.
