Toyota Prius: Since it has the same powertrain, the cheaper Prius ($24,200) is a natural reference point. The Prius can also be outfitted quite luxuriously, and is also available with the Entune mobile app system, which is like Lexus' Enform system.
Volkswagen Golf TDI: We could have mentioned the Audi A3 TDI here, as it's the CT200h model's natural rival, but we're pointing you to the Golf TDI ($24,235) instead because it offers almost all the A3's goodness in a more affordable package. Either way, the excellent TDI turbodiesel engine outdoes the CT's hybrid system on the highway, though it's a no contest win for the Lexus in urban driving.
Honda CR-Z: Maybe we're reaching here, but the CR-Z ($19,975) could be an interesting alternative if you don't care about having a backseat. Its hybrid-powered fuel economy isn't quite as awesome as the CT's, but the 2-seat CR-Z makes up for it with sportier handling and a pretty cool interior of its own.
