EPA Rates 200t at 22/33 MPG



We knew Lexus would be adding a 2.0T to the RC's repertoire, we now know its EPA rated mileage courtesy of the IS200t.

For 2016 the IS200t achieves 22/33/26 MPG (city/highway/combined), improving on the outgoing IS250's 21/30/24. While Lexus has done their best to keep up with the segment, it still lags behind BMW and Mercedes at 28 combined for the 3 series and E class respectively, while Audi's A4 clocks in at 27 MPG combined.

Considering that the IS350 and the RC350 share identical 19/28/22 MPG figures we can likely assume the RC200t will share the same 22/33/26 as the IS200t.

2 MPG difference can't be much of a deterrent if Lexus is what you want. The gas prices are pretty low anyways and if saving gas is that important you may as well go all electric or hybrid.

Exactly and when you factor in other areas you can win, like in reliability, then it starts to get better. So since we're in this for years, over the long haul it will be worth it.

Lexus is more reliable and they actually care about customer satisfaction.

You aren't buying this vehicle to have the most efficient car around. I'm glad that Lexus is around the same as its competitors. No one wants to have a car that is tons less efficient than competitors.

That's the way it always is from segment to segment, each segment has its requirements and its only ideal that the car makers playing in that segment play within the 'rules'

There is a crop of hybrid performance vehicles though. They appeal to a niche crowd, but I think that niche is growing in popularity.

There is and even that is growing at a fast rate with a lot of companies either planning to come out with one or have one out already, still far more growth to go for hybrids.
