Adult occupant

The passenger compartment of the CT200h remained stable in the frontal impact. Knee airbags for the driver and passenger provided good protection to the knees and femurs. Lexus were able to show that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different seating positions. Maximum points were scored in the side barrier impact, with all body regions being well protected. In the more severe side pole impact, chest protection was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of rib deflections. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision was rated as good.

Child occupant

The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used safely in that seating position. Information on the switch and in the dashboard provided clear indication to the driver about the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded by Euro NCAP.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs, scoring maximum points in Euro NCAP's tests. However, the front edge of the bonnet was poor in nearly all of the areas tested. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a child the bonnet offered a good level of protection but, while good in places, was rated as poor or marginal in most areas where an adult's head might strike.

Safety assist

Electronic Stability Control is standard equipment on the CT200h and met Euro NCAP's requirements. A seatbelt reminder system is provided as standard for the driver, front passenger and rear seats.
