Expert Reviews Feature Articles hybrid Lexus

Why is the Lexus RX the best selling luxury SUV in the US? According to the Institute for Highway Safety, only nine vehicles sold here had zero deaths per million registered vehicles. The RX350 was one of those nine. It also sells itself because it does everything you’d expect from such a premium vehicle, and does it all well.

Review: 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD

Expert Reviews Feature Articles hybrid Toyota

Get more, pay more. Toyota has dimensionally revised the 2014 version of its Highlander, widening it 4.5 inches, and adding 3 inches to its length.

Review: 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid

Expert Reviews Feature Articles Ford hybrid

If Ford’s C-Max Hybrid represents the future of cars, I’ll start reviewing toasters. This expensive derivative of the $16,995 Focus costs $31,085, weighs a whopping 3,639 pounds, but makes just 141hp in petrol mode or 188hp in combined petrol/electric mode.
