We won't see the redesign here in the US.

The Lexus CT 200h might be getting the axe in the US, but it soldiers on elsewhere in the world with a minor model change for 2018.

The biggest difference can be found in the exterior, where a full-on spindle grille replaces the old one bisected by a horizontal grille. "Arrowhead" daytime running lights accentuate the headlights as well.

Both front and rear fascias have been reshaped, and the rear gains LED taillights of a new design. New ten-spoke alloys come with dark metallic paint, while F Sport editions get redesigned 17-inch wheels. Additionally, two-tone paint jobs will now be offered on F-Sport models. The pair of new hues are called Lava Orange Crystal Sunshine and Heat Blue Contrast Layering.

Inside, the 7-inch touch-screen infotainment display has been replaced with a larger 10.3-inch unit. A total of six new two-tone interior schemes brighten up the cabin with names like Chateau/Fromage and Sunflare Brown Film.

The refreshed CT 200h will go on sale in markets such as Japan and Australia in October 2017.
