New spindle grille debuts on Lexus CT200h at Guangzhou Motor Show

More pronounced this time around

As far as we\'re concerned, the now-familiar spindle grille on all Lexus models really started with the CT200h back in 2010, even if the official position of the Japanese luxury carmaker is that the brand-identifying grille truly debuted on the GS in 2011. We guess it has something to do with the fact that the original CT200h only had a hint of the spindle grille, whereas the GS flaunted it in all its full-blown glory.

Now, to make the CT200h look more like its siblings--and to finally eliminate questions as to whether it has a spindle grille or not--Lexus has given it a much more pronounced version of the facial styling element, as unveiled at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China.

\"The center has been pushed forward to create a powerful, more three-dimensional form,\" Lexus said in its press statement. \"The bottom corners are spaced wider and the spindle\'s pinch point has been lowered, reinforcing the CT 200h\'s low front profile and wide, sporting track.\"

It can now be said that the spindle grille has come full circle.
