2013 Lexus ES 300h 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Up until now, hybrids looked like, well.....hybrids. Little bug like vehicles that got great mileage but that's where it stopped.
This thing, this 300h, has the looks, reliability, fuel efficiency, comfort and luxury we've been waiting for. Being only $2,500.00 more than it's gas only brother, the ES350, Lexus did us a great favor. The extra dollars spent up front really gets made up in the great fuel economy in just a few years, versus 10-12 years with a lot of hybrids.
It takes regular gas, not premium!!
Great exterior styling and interior comfort. Very well thought out interior.
Great sound system that comes standard
Love the lane exchange, rear vehicle warnings
Love the park assist
Plenty of pep
The only improvement I can see would be to redesign the joy stick that navigates the on screen programs. Just a bit clumsy but I'm getting used to it. Other than that, a tremendous value for years to come.
