In this quick review, I look at the 2021 Lexus RX in its hybrid (450h) model. The hybrid, like most Toyota vehicles, is much better balanced and road worthy than is its gasoline counterpart. Lexus upgraded the name of the RX hybrid to 450h to denote the slightly more powerful hybrid powertrain and added a few tech upgrades like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well.
In this review, Aaron gets into the Honda CR-V which was reintroduced with a Hybrid option for 2020. He talks about what’s different, why the hybrid might be a better option, and the good and bad with that choice. Nevermind that sleek gray color it comes with.
In this shaky cam interior walkthrough, I get into the new Honda CR-V in its Hybrid format and the Touring package. Great vehicle, but not without a couple of flaws. One of which would be a deal breaker for me. At 38 mpg, though, it’s hard to overlook this excellent Honda.

Find out what we know and what we think about the new 2021 Toyota Venza and the 2021 Toyota Sienna.
In this full review, I look at the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica in its Hybrid Limited package. As the only plug-in hybrid minivan on the market, the Pacifica Hybrid has everything you could ask for. Plus HUGE amounts of MPGe on top of that. Check it out!

Toyota completely redesigned the Avalon Hybrid for the 2019 model year, giving it new bodywork, a new face, and a better interior. These cosmetic differences just get started, though, with the Avalon also seeing significant changes to its chassis and hybrid powertrain. Which prove the hybrid out. Read the review …
