2013 Lexus GS 450h | CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)

The good: With its hybrid gas-electric power train, the 2013 Lexus GS 450h reliably averages 30 mpg. Its adaptive suspension gives it unexpectedly good cornering. The Enform system brings in apps such as Facebook, Yelp, OpenTable, and Bing search.

The bad: The joystick controller on the console feels plasticky, and it is difficult to accurately control the onscreen pointer.

The cost: $58,950

The bottom line: The 2013 Lexus GS 450h is a tech tour de force, getting outrageously good fuel economy for this class of car with its hybrid drive system, and giving drivers the convenience of popular apps integrated with the cabin electronics.
