An understated way to go green, the Infinit M35h is a great way to make a statement while still driving a luxury sedan under the radar.

The Lexus GS 450h is all-new for 2013 with more aggressive styling and sportier driving dynamics.

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTec offers hybrid like fuel efficiency with the monstrous torque that only a diesel engine can provide.

The base BMW 5-Series now features a turbo four-cylinder, and a new hybrid model is on the way.
