The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus ES is the one of the best luxury cars for those who still have practical considerations like back-seat space and ride comfort; and the 300h Hybrid model is quite the counterpoint to much more expensive 'green luxury' models. The 2015 Subaru WRX is no quicker than before, but beautifully balanced handling and spot-on steering are better than ever.
