Lexus has announced the 2014 CT 200h will be priced from $32,050 - excluding a $910 processing and handling fee - when it goes on sale in the United States early next year.

Recently unveiled at the Guangzhou Motor Show, the facelifted model has a new front bumper and a spindle grille that matches the rest of the Lexus lineup. The car has also been equipped with LED daytime running lights, a larger rear spoiler, a shark fin antenna and 17-inch alloy wheels.

If that's not sporty enough, the CT 200h F Sport has a mesh grille, a distinctive rear spoiler and a contrasting black roof. There's also "mesh fog lamp inserts" and two-tone alloy wheels.

Interior changes are relatively limited but the model has improved speakers and an updated infotainment system. Other highlights include a new steering wheel, a redesigned shifter and additional metallic accents.

Power is provided by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that is backed up by a 650 Volt motor/generator. This setup enables the model to have a combined maximum output of 134 bhp (100 kW) and an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 43 mpg city / 40 mpg hwy / 42 mpg combined (US).
