Toyota has freshened up the looks of its CT 200h compact luxury hybrid to make it more like the rest of the lineup, added a few other touches and kept the price the same.

CT will get the hourglass-shaped front-end design on other Lexus models. It's what the brand calls it the "spindle grille" and what we have called looking a lot like the face of Star Wars' bad guy Darth Vader.

Also as part of the update, CT gets a new front bumper, daytime LED running lights and new fog-light "surrounds."

The 17-inch wheels have a new design and the rear spoiler is a little more than an inch larger. The CT is rated at 43 miles a gallon in the city, 40 mpg on the highway for a combined rating of 42 mpg.

The new one comes to showrooms as soon as late January with a price of $32,050 plus $910 in delivery fees.
