Lexus HS 250h

30-day price drop: $459

The Lexus HS 250h just never made much sense.  It's not as though there is much wrong with it.  It promises to offer a pure hybrid powertrain coupled with Lexus quality and luxurious materials, and it does what it promises.  But somehow it just never quite added up.  It gets just 35 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway -- not great numbers for a car from the company that brought you the Prius.  And you don't get a better driving experience in exchange for the less-impressive gas mileage.  It's nice enough, but maybe not nice enough to justify the premium over a top-of-the-line Prius.  That may be why it isn't selling well, and cracks the list of the five vehicles that suffered the most severe price drops last month.

  1. Maybe because these five are not the best choices in their classes..

  2. about now is when they launch the 2011 models, so it makes sense to drop the 2010 price

  3. Totally sensationalistic and misleading headline. To elaborate on what "duh" has said Mercedes sales are up 25% so far this year. Giving somebody a $2000. bigger discount on a $100,000 or 1400 bigger discount on a 40,000 2010 car because the 2011s will be here soon is perfectly reasonable and not a "fire sale" as intimated by the author. By Shelly Lazoff Over 30 years in the car business. 4 years Audi Jeep, 10 years BMW, 16 years Mercedes. Honest and unbiased articles?Just like Fox News.

  4. Sean ... I understand you only had so space to work with, but you should have mentioned whether or not these transactional prices included any new or additional incentive or not, as well as what percentage of the MSRP these reductions represent. Had you done so I suspect a completely different story would have emerged - a much more complete and meaningful story.

  5. Fact check Sean: the S63 is a V8, not a V12. The S65 is a V12.
