35This is the much better looking Lexus HS 250h that we won't get

The Lexus HS 250h was put to rest in the US at the beginning of this year, but it is apparently being offered a way back onto the mortal coil in the Japanese market. This is reputedly a picture of what the JDM-spec entry-level Lexus hybrid sedan will look like, and what a difference 11 months makes. It appears that only the front clip changed, the brand's new design language giving it much more visual oomph than the hyped-up hybrid Corolla look we were offered.

53These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.

16Slow-selling Lexus HS 250h already getting the axe?

Lexus may stop production of the HS 250h. Reports have emerged that the model is suffering from flagging sales and that the luxury automaker may seek to replace the vehicle with a less-expensive, more youth-oriented product in the near future. Last month, Lexus managed to sell just 250 HS 250h units, which is a decline of 72.8 percent compared to the same (already low) period last year. Originally envisioned as a more upscale version of the Toyota Prius, the awkwardly styled HS 250h carries a su

Lexus design has never been very flashy, and many might say (including us) the automaker's entire current lineup is a bit bland-looking (LFA supercar excepted, natch). But that visual conservatism may be about to change: Automotive News is reporting that the Japanese juggernaut plans to change that by taking more risks and striving for more character.

4Lexus bumps up price of CT 200h, HS 250h for 2012

For 2012 Model Year vehicles, Lexus retained 2011 pricing for most of its offerings, but decided to up the sticker price for the compact CT 200h Premium and HS 250h.

3Lexus CT 200h, HS 250h reward fuel-efficient driving with charitable donations

The Japanese-market Lexus CT 200h and HS 250h feature an electronic fuel-saving device called the Harmonious Driving Navigator. Ahhhh, doesn't that tickle your ears? This system assists in saving fuel by alerting drivers when they hammer the pedal to the floor, accelerate briskly or pilot the vehicle in a way that consumes more gasoline than the Harmonious Driving Navigator deems necessary at the time. But it does so much more: it can give money to charity.
