Car & Driver Continues Lexus Bashing

The minute I heard the voiceover of this Car & Driver video preview of the Lexus HS 250h, I knew we were in for a treat:

Jens Meiner, who put in one of the most derisive 2010 RX preview videos last year, clearly outdid himself with this preview of the HS — my favorite quote:

“Those [HS gas mileage] numbers will be hard to duplicate in real life driving, unless you have a very light gas foot, you do a lot of city driving, or actually you’re driving a diesel.”

So, is C&D now the North American arm of Auto Motor Und Sport? Not liking the HS is one thing, but slamming a car you haven’t yet driven is just bush league.
