Color Commentary on the 2011 Lexus CT200h

Hey, guess what? If you tell me one more time you think the color of my test car, a 2011 Lexus CT200h is ugly, I’m gonna punch you in the face. I am interested in the fact that you don’t like the color, even more so if you can contribute more to the conversation than, “it’s ugly.” But come on, I don’t think you should comment on it every single time you see me. In fact, when you do, it makes you seem like a crotchety person who will also tell me to get off your lawn.

A report recently put out by PPG Industries (a global paint supplier) determined that white is the most popular car paint color. I wonder if white is so popular because it’s used in commercial fleets. But the report does explain why the color of the 2011 Lexus CT200h is tough for many people. It is a greeny-goldy-yellow, and I like it. I think it is an intriguing color and way more exciting than white or even silver.

This car is not crotchety, not one little bit. That the CT200h looks like a youngster’s car might be a surprise to you. All who encountered this 5-door hatchback were intrigued to find it was a Lexus. I’m just saying, Lexus hit the nail on the head if they are looking to cater to people who are looking for something spunky. Add to the fact that my test car rings up at $35,819 and those wacky youngsters get more and more interested in this racy hatchback.

Even crazier still is that the CT200h is a hybrid. Well now, that just put all you old folks right off the car, didn’t it? Crazy techno-cars just don’t work for you? Well, you are missing out, old friend. I had fun in the CT200h before I even put it in Sport mode. After I put it in Sport Mode, well, I might actually be back to the pumps in a jiffy. I love that I can take corners so quickly in the CT200h. What I love most was the flexibility. I can sip on gas when I am in traffic or not needing to speed around. But when I want some performance, I get it. The CT200h is a front-wheel drive and has estimated mpgs of 43 in the city and 40 on the highway.

So you can take your neatly manicured lawn and your white car and park it where the sun don’t shine. I’m driving my funky car that won’t tolerate your talk radio and your prunes.
