I recently bought a car that is way too big for my britches (an Acura RL), but in the process it was a nice refresh on what the car industry had to offer me. My next car will probably be a hybrid, and it's nice to see they're finally getting around to making Sedans.Toyota rolls out 1st hybrid sedan under Lexus brandI don't really care if it's a hybrid or not, I just like the fact that it gets 14.2 km/litre (33 MPG). Gregg Easterbrook had a great piece on this... it's not that engines are getting less efficient, it's that they're more efficient from a horsepower/mileage ratio, but the horsepower is increasing faster than the gas mileage. Ah we Americans, we love the fast (whose commercials I absolutely love).It is striking, now that I'm back from Europe, how different the average car is there. I don't think it's anything about being enviro-friendly, it's just there's no parking ANYWHERE. Plus, those little Audi A3s are absolute demons.
