  • Kylie Minogue and the Lexus CT 200h

    So, Kylie Minogue is shilling the Lexus CT 200h. Let's discuss: PRO: This could mean that Lexus has finally given its confusing "Darker Side of Green" campaign the Old Yeller treatment. CON: Old Yeller made us cry. (The "Darker Side of Green", on the other hand, made us rabid, like Old Yeller.) PRO: If the "Darker Side of Green" is over, those bogus climate-change debates are, too. CON: Those bogus climate-change debates may have been the only thing keeping Sarah Silverman in rent money. PRO: Kylie has a lot of appeal for Generations X and Y, which are the CT 200h's target demographics. CON...

    2011 Lexus CT 200h Priced From $29,995

    Lackluster is perhaps the best description for Lexus' hybrid offerings thus far, with the RX 450h and HS 250h returning unimpressive efficiency and high prices.
