The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's not one of Toyota's most efficient hybrids, but the Lexus GS 450h does give luxury shoppers an option in the mid-size segment. Better handling and interiors put the Mercedes-Benz E-Class back in benchmark status; a passel of new engines brings fuel economy to new heights.
