The Car Connection's Take

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Stunning performance is still the calling card for the 2011 BMW M3; the weight it's gained may just be a sign of its success. The 2011 Lexus HS 250h pairs nifty technology features with high mileage ratings, though it fails to provide impressive comfort or an engaging driving experience.
