While not exactly eye-catching, I don't find the HS250h homely, as was intimated in our preview of it in the 2010 New Cars issue. Instead, I find the HS250h to be fairly innocuous. It's perfectly nice to drive if you're not interested in scorching the pavement, its interior is well put together and has all the niceties you expect in a Lexus, and its hybrid system works well, with the transition between electric and gasoline power mostly unnoticeable. All in all, a car that Lexus followers who want to own a green car will no doubt be happy to drive.
