If the new CT can learn lessons from the successes of the UX it’ll be a massive step forward, and the oncoming introduction of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the Lexus range will solve most of the issues that the UX suffers. But we motoring journalists are paid to nitpick at the end of the day, and actually the UX will do everything its target market demands in comfort.
New things beckon for GRR, but the Lexus has been a delightfully comfortable rest point for the last month or so. We’ll miss the comfort, the excellent cooling seats during those slightly warm July days, but perhaps not that touchpad for the infotainment system. Now, who at Lexus do we ask for some of those seats as office chairs..?
MPG this week: 51.1.
