AUTO REVIEW— Every few years, a car comes along that garners the buzz from the world of automobilia. Among the green car enthusiasts, the second-generation Prius had this distinction.

GALLERY—37 years ago, it was called the Weird Little Car Show by micro car aficionados in Arizona. Since then, the name has changed (to the Southwest Unique Little Car Show), and venue has been hopping all over the Southwest.

AUTO REVIEW— Thanks to Mercedes-Benz, you can have your cake and eat it too. That is, when you drive the full-size S550e, with the utmost in luxury, connectivity, safety and performance, you still can get up to 26 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway, and a combined 58MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). In full electric mode, you are able to drive up to 14 miles. The S550e is for drivers who want something greener and more efficient. That’s having your cake and eating it too. Harvey Schwartz reports.
