In most Hybrid or Hellraiser columns, I start by making a tasteless poop joke about hybrid drivers, then end by trying to convince you that driving a gas-guzzling muscle car will somehow make you a better person. But I'm not going to do that this time. Because small hatchbacks like the 2015 Lexus CT200h and 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3, actually offer everything that you need to live a rewarding life. Sort of like Metamucil for the Soul! (oh crap, I just made a poop joke) Anyway, it’s time to figure out if you should drive the pricey hybrid, or the insane used alternative...
