EDITOR WES For all that’s going on underneath the electric motors whirring, the brakes regenerating, the engine off and turning back on—this is a boring car to drive. I mean, 187 net hp? The car is so in Eco mode, it feels like than half that hp and the Power mode is barely The CVT doesn’t help; it’s as are all CVTs that I remember And the car sounds rough and nasty you accelerate hard, which you to do just to keep up with

The car is heavy, feels heavier the weight listed, and thus the is poor over expansion and such. A little too choppy for a customer, I’d say.

Is anything positive at all? the interior materials are lovely. it, though.

Toyota says by 2020, all of its cars will be as hybrids. This car is an interim and feels like it.

NEWS GREG MIGLIORE: The HS 250h is a sedate drive, though it tons of cutting-edge technology. If looking for a driver’s car, isn’t it. But as a stately, luxury aimed at customers seeking friendly transportation, this is a option.

In a nutshell: Enthusiasts be very bored in this The general public will its comforts and appearance. To offer a review, I think it’s to put this car in that context.

So how does it drive? Extremely It ably navigated train and uneven pavement during my all over town. The suspension is relaxed and adept at cruising and avenues.

Power is adequate and is doable. This isn’t a sedan. It’s four-banger four-door. Viewed through prism, it was more than up to the in all situations for me. And this sedan return solid mileage. My recorded a tick over 30 mpg for one and many will take instead of raw power as a tradeoff any

The brakes are strong and linear, and I had to stop quickly when backed up one morning on a wet expressway, the had no trouble bringing me to halt excessive panic or worry. The is a bit light off-center, but there’s response as you turn in. The general will find this acceptable.

Inside, the cabin is a serene It’s well isolated the outside world at speed on the and only traces of road and noise get in. The materials were OK, pleasing to the touch, though the weren’t my favorites; still, a buttoned-down environment. With the down and the moonroof open home on a hot afternoon following a car I was very relaxed. For what worth, the cooled seats in tester did almost nothing, what I could tell.

The joystick gear shifter is of cool and easy to use, with the push-button parking and selectors. This is where America will love the of use and appliancelike dynamics—but the novelty wear off quickly for car guys. The camera is very clear, and the for driving (Eco, Power and EV) are to find and choose. Power a bit more getup, but this is not a car by any means.

The looks grew on me. At I found it to be every bland, but it is a nonoffensive design that will like. Interestingly, I it dull at first, but my family, and other observers thought it very high-class. So Lexus is hitting the mark here. I was taken by the details: the headlights and are extremely sharp, and the chrome-colored on lower body is a nice

Overall, this is a nice of why America likes hybrids but why are often a bit bored with
