GREEN | 8 out of 10
Our editors have found those figures to be perhaps slightly optimistic, as they often are for hybrids. This editor saw about 30 mpg keeping with fast-moving Orange County traffic but reached a 46 mpg average in exceptionally gentle, controlled conditions on level roads. In a follow-up drive with the HS, we saw 32 mpg over about 100 miles of mixed conditions.
That said, 35 mpg in city driving is pretty impressive, and beat only by a few other vehicles.
While the HS 250h might present fuel economy numbers that aren't impressive to the hard-core green shoppers, it's one of the greenest luxury picks on the market.
