TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Chevrolet Volt is the plug-in electric car you drive as far as you want--if you can find one to buy. The 2012 Lexus CT 200h is a surprisingly stylish, fun, and unexpected car, blending Lexus levels of refinement with superb hybrid gas mileage. It's the sole compact luxury hybrid hatch, but it offers good value and a new way of driving green.
