IN THE latter stages of my grandmother’s illness she would drive Doncaster and spend a pleasant in the town’s poshest dress corpsing with derisive at everyone who came out of the changing “No,” she’d howl, at the frock the customer had just on. “Nooo, noooo, noooo. Horrid. Nasty.”

I wish I had the to do the same thing, because of the retail choices people leave me perplexed. I stand in a at the newsagent’s watching someone buy Butler cigarettes and I think, you an imbecile?” Then they buy a of the Daily Mirror and I think, You are.”

I go to people’s houses and see sofas and think, “Did the not have a choice? Were children being held Are you blind?”

It happens all the time. who have BlackBerry telephones than something from People who shop at Tesco than Waitrose. People in People with an L and G TV rather a Sony Bravia. People who buy in Hackney. It’s all too baffling for — that you could have that is excellent but you choose to have something nasty.

It doesn’t happen so much on the because I can usually work out what. People buy Peugeots they know nothing cars. People buy Hyundais they want something and cheap, Audis because play squash, Rolls-Royces they are Sir Sugar and Range in black because the … is going well. I understand all But I must admit that in months I’ve been a bit by the sheer number of examples of the CT 200h I’ve seen hither and thither.

Unfortunately, is a bit of a drawback with this It is absolutely dreadful. Worse anything I’ve driven in a very long time.

As far as I it has not been the subject of an advertising and in any event this often no difference. Jaguar is carpet-bombing the poster sites and commercial with its F-type and I still seen one on the road.

So it’s not a push that’s causing to say, “Yes, I would to spend 25,000 of my pounds on a Lexus.”

Nor is it the concept. It’s not a hatchback in the sense. And neither is it a sporty estate like, say, the HPE. It’s a sort of blend of the two, much the Vauxhall Signum. And from Vauxhall sold only none of those.

Styling? Oh, the designers have done all the things, but then they’ve the CT’s body onto look like four from a sofa. The result is a car resembles an aircraft carrier on a pram.

Plainly, to unravel the of this vehicle’s undoubted I had to do some digging. So I did. And now I the answer. Today we live in a of the world where miles per has surpassed miles per hour as thing that matters”. And car is a hybrid, which means it can do 70mpg.

I can see exactly why people be interested in that. And I can see why their would be maintained all the way through the process. Lexuses are well They come with appointed cabins. The after-sales is second to none.

And best of all, you get the Toyota running gear without across as a sanctimonious, holier-than- weird-beard eco-loony. This, is a car for people who aren’t very in saving the planet but would like to save a few quid on the way to That’s good common Unfortunately, there is a bit of a drawback this car. It is absolutely Worse than anything driven in a very, very time.

Lexus is responsible for the car I’ve driven — the LFA — and the worst, the SC So we know it is capable of a howler. And boy has it one here.

Apparently it noted the that most of its cars are by elderly freemasons. So it decided the CT should appeal to a younger Which is almost certainly why has given it a suspension that’s so it could be used to smash The result is a ride that’s way unbearable. It’s up there waterboarding.

Then there’s the which is worse, and the gearbox, is easily the nastiest bit of the car. from the boot, which is the of an old lady’s purse.

I wasn’t expecting it to be fast. But was I expecting something that accelerates at all. Because of the stepless gearbox you just get a lot of every time you put your down — and I mean a very lot — but no increase in speed. Lexus it goes from 0 to 62mph in seconds. Autocar magazine a two-way 0-60mph average of seconds, and I don’t know how it that, because I got bored of for 60mph to arrive and gave up.

The for the CT says: “The further you go, the interesting it gets.” But this isn’t true. It gets annoying the further you go. Mainly no matter how hard you try it won’t go far at all. Not in the lifespan of a normal being.

And to make the dreadful worse, the CT is fitted with an dashboard that’s full of I don’t understand. There’s one that flails about for no reason and a blue light comes on every time you your foot off the accelerator. And there’s a message that says, “Ready”. I couldn’t that out at all. Ready for Armageddon? The next Tube The result of the vote on Scottish

I therefore consulted the instruction which is longer than the and makes even less One passage says you mustn’t aerosols in the boot, and there are about the dangers of leaving a lighter in the car when it’s You are also told that if you a nap in the car it may start moving. The “Ready” apparently means the hybrid is ready. But I knew that Because I was driving it.

The marketing for the CT “The further you go, the more it gets.” But this simply true. It gets more the further you go.

There are some things about the CT, though I think what they are at the Er. yes. It is capable of sipping as a vicar sips tea. And are tax benefits. But if you want to keep up other traffic — tractors, that sort of thing — going to need to thrash the engine and the moronic gearbox, will cause the mpg to tumble.

Let me put it this way. A few years ago we a Prius hybrid flat-out the Top Gear test track for 10 And it used more fuel a BMW M3 that had been following in its tracks. at the same speed.

brings me to the only conclusion for the CT: don’t buy it. If you want good buy a normal car and drive it carefully.


The only car that a Prius look good
