ROAD TEST EDITOR NEFF: One wouldn’t be faulted for the 2013 Lexus LS 600h L to be a cushy riff on the Toyota formula. At least that’s I presumed the first time I behind the wheel. What you get is a far cry from the Prius’ king-of-the-hybrid-fuel-economy-mountain

Sure, much of the self-congratulatory of the Prius carries over the luxury boat (as is the case any hybrid); the car will start and off the line in full electric and the engine will shut at stops, both of which prompt a dutiful little symbol to light up on the instrument patting you on the back for being so The problem is, the ultimate return for all the tech behind that green light-two electric regenerative brakes and a 288-volt pack eating up half the a whopping 2 mpg in combined fuel over the LS 460 L, and that comes at a premium.

The truly good stuff the big Lexus has nothing to do with its like the lush executive seats (optional), the dead-quiet and a center display screen stretches over 12 inches corner to corner. But for that one, Lexus somehow to spoil the joy of navigating all those by forcing you to use a clunky mouse-like It might as well give you an pointing stick and go full

So, either go with the nonhybrid LS you’ll still get stuck that joystick), or if you want fuel-economy gains, go with a in something like the Audi A8

ASSOCIATE EDITOR JAKE Next to the Porsche Panamera I think this Lexus LS L is my favorite electric-gas combo. I the bug-eye LED lights, the bleach on this looks great, and glad they didn’t put a set of hybrid-style wheels on it.

The interior of the LS has to be as as the big dogs from Mercedes-Benz and All Lexus seats are stellar, and didn’t disappoint: Sporty and but still comfortable. The navigation/infotainment is one of my favorites, and the mouse-like control is everyone is familiar with.

The LS 600h L is plenty fast, with the CVT. I find it annoying when there’s power behind it, and this car is quick off the line with drive, the CVT, and electric

The Mercedes-Benz S400 starts at $92,000, and the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 starts at $85K, so there is a premium for car, but of course you get a V8, the others systems feature six-cylinder
