  • 2010 Lexus HS 250h

    January 8, 2010

     The Lexus HS 250h will be the brand's first dedicated hybrid sedan when it reaches showrooms in the fall of 2009. Lexus's three gas-electric hybrid vehicles currently on sale were originally developed as gas-engine models, then converted or updated for hybrid operation. The HS 250h, based closely on the familiar Toyota Prius, is a hybrid vehicle exclusively, no gas-engine-only version is available. Think of the HS 250h as an upscale Prius with Lexus-style amenities and dealership experience and you won't be far off the mark.... Read more

  • By John Stewart [NewCarTestDrive] Edging away from the current RX look, the 2010 RX 350 has a wider stance, with more pronounced front fenders and crisper lines overall. As in the previous generation, the grille is placed lower than the headlights, so the Lexus family resemblance carries on, but the headlights are more sharply defined and the roofline is flatter. In essence, the rounded egg-shaped body has been redefined at the corners to retain fluid RX cues in an updated format.... Read more

  • All-new, with more technology but less complexity. By John Stewart [NewCarTestDrive] As vehicles become more complex, driving becomes more like operating a computer. Yet the new 2010 Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h seems uncommonly easy to operate. And they are brimming with new technology. If the RX were a computer, and in more ways than ever, it is, it would have a plug-and-play operating system and an inviting, engaging user interface. ... Read more

  • During this holiday week many of us will travel to visit relatives, while others will stay home to spend time with friends and family. Some will consume large amounts of turkey and fall into a tryptophan-induced food coma. A handful of the less fortunate will be lured into the post-Thanksgiving holiday gift buying frenzy resulting in unwelcome door dings on our fine cars in the mall parking lot.... Read more
