Toyota City, Japan, April 25, 2012-Lexus announces that the "CT 200h" gasoline-electric hybrid five-door hatchback earned the Grand Prix award for highest safety performance among all vehicle models rated under the Japan New Car Assessment Program* (JNCAP) vehicle-safety evaluation tests.  The CT 200h also received the Five-Star Award from the 2011 JNCAP and is the first vehicle model to receive the Grand Prix under the new overall safety performance assessment structure introduced in 2011.



The new assessment structure integrates vehicle occupant protection and pedestrian protection performance during collisions under a single assessment structure, providing an overall safety evaluation for automobiles with the assignment of one to five stars.  The CT 200h received the maximum five-star rating for achieving the highest level of safety for vehicle occupants as well as for pedestrians.  Vehicle occupant safety is attained through features including a highly rigid cabin, impact-absorbing body, Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) seats and eight airbags, while pedestrian safety is ensured in part through the use of a state-of-the-art body structure that helps to protect pedestrians from injuries.

Lexus-as a true global premium brand born in Japan-remains committed to providing vehicles that offer the utmost safety and peace-of-mind for both occupants and pedestrians.



*Since 1995, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) and the National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victims' Aid have been disseminating information under the JNCAP on the safety of vehicles to promote the use of safe automobiles.  The information comprises results of safety evaluations for commercially available vehicles based on tests including collision safety performance tests, pedestrian head and leg protection performance tests and braking performance tests.
