Birthday Luxuries with the 2017 Lexus CT 200h | Review Friday 17 February, 2017
So I talked about celebrating my birthday this week about my mini staycation but I didnt talk about how I got there. I was able to travel for my birthday riding in the brand new Lexus CT 200h! I was so excited to test drive this car. Nope this was not a birthday gift.
Can I let you all on in on a little secret? This was my first time driving a luxury vehicle. I never owned one but of course I have always wanted to. I just always gotten economically friendly cars but look a year older and I know I deserve to drive in luxury. So this made my birthday special as I was invited to go to the enchanting Chateau Elan Winery and Resort and take the Lexus up here. If you read about the birthday post here, you know I took a lot of pictures here. It was definitely photo op worthy but of course I did more ops with the car too! Almost as if I was shooting a car editorial check them out below!

Normal mode provides the optimal balance of fuel efficiency and engine performance. Feeling sportier? Choose Sport mode for a thrilling throttle response and maximized steering feel.
Now I will say the most interesting thing about driving this Lexus was the clutch. You dont just shift your car into gear by going up and down anymore. I actually cant really explain it properly but to go in reverse and drive its a interesting motion that I definitely had to get used to. To put the car in park was pretty easy, just push the P button.
This was definitely an amazing ride with a sporty look and feel. It was very quiet. Seriously when you start this car up, the engine is barely hear until you put the car in drive. Its smooth, sophisticated and it was definitely the icing to my birthday cake. This Lexus definitely made my birthday luxurious along with my beautiful time spent at the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort. I feel like I need to add more luxury in my lifestyle and I will.
