2019 ES 300h Hybrid Luxury

This is a luxury, teriffic milage, car that is very quiet. The layout of tha interior is similar to the LS. The operation of the instrumentation leaves something to be desired-way too complicated to operate. Lexus seemed to go out of their way making everything instrumental way too hard to easily operate. My 2013 Lexus ES300h was much easier insofar as operation of the instrumental package. Otherwise, it is a great car. Smooth, quiet, firm easy driving. I would strongly suggest paying extra for the Luxury package in order to get the noise reducing wheels and window glass. They come standard as part of the Luxury package.

BEST Hybrid 'Prius' made

This is my second ES300h. I now have 3,200 miles on this car. SUPERB Automobile.. SO safety conscious. Far superior to the 6th generation. I am a bit of an enomoly... I get 49 - 52.5 mpg about town, 46 on the highway. SO comfortable.. seats are wonderful to drive from.. This 'Mark Levinson' is infinitely better than previous versions. Driving, on the road, is surgical as to placement and position. I got the UL package with every option they offered... not inexpensive, but for what you get.. WELL worth waiting for a special Order. "Get your hands on a Toyota, you'll never let Go".. and the Lexus label is even better..

We love our 2019 ES 300h

This has to be the most enjoyable car we have ever owned. It is a dream to drive. My wife and I fight over who gets to drive the car. The ride is smooth, the cabin is bank vault quiet , and the milage is outstanding. With mostly city driving, we have averaged 42 mpg since we bought the car. I would recommend paying extra and getting the luxury package. With that package you get the noise reducing wheels and noise reducing side windows. Our previous car was a 2013 Lexus ES 300h. We liked the car, but the cabin noise was loud, especially on the highway. That was the main reason we traded for the 2019 model.

This is my first Lexus. My last four cars were (1) 2012 Prius 5, (2) 2013 Avalon Limited Hybrid, (3) 2014 Mercedes E250, and (4) 2017 Mercedes E300 so I’m not unfamiliar with luxury cars or hybrids. This car is truly awesome. I drive about 35,000 miles per year and appreciate comfort and technology. This car has loads of both. The interior is not as stunning as my Mercedes E300, but I also don’t expect to make as many trips to the dealer for repairs as I did with both Mercedes cars. I love them, but they wore me out with their maintenance needs. I, also, don’t like the mouse pad as well as the control on my Mercedes, but it’s usable and learnable. I love the quiet cabin, silky smooth ride and the surprisingly responsive handling. Among my favorite features are the head-up display and ventilated seat, which is truly great in Texas as are the blinds for the rear seat passengers. The mouse pad is the only chink in an otherwise wonderful car, but it's certainly not enough for me to dislike the entire car. It would be nice if Lexus or some aftermarket entity could retrofit a knob of some sort to replace the mouse pad, but I imagine that would be far too problematic. Update February 2020: I'm still loving the Lexus after five months behind the wheel. I have over 14,000 miles on the car now and can report it's had two trips to the dealership; one for tire rotation at 5k miles and a second at 10k for oil change and checkup. Neither visit cost me anything. I've learned how to use the car's technology package and take full advantage of the advanced features like Apply CarPlay, adaptive cruise, auto-dim headlamps, lane departure, and its various emergency/safety functions which have come in handy more than once in Dallas and Houston traffic. The lights on this car are incredible. For one thing, they're incredibly bright. Yes, I've been flashed more than once by an oncoming car who thought I had brights on. I imagine that's just a matter of perception. Plus, the headlamps track when turning and there are curb/corner lights just like on my Dad's 1967 Buick Electra. Cool! MPG is still going strong at 40+ and gas prices are low. What could be better?

So this is what luxury feels like

For a base model, my car is extremely plush. It's super quiet and is pillowy soft on the road, taking most bumps/potholes with ease and grace. The finishes are largely superb and it's very comfortable to sit in. There are a few things that irk me (unintuitive infotainment system, difficult menu navigation to turn the AC on/off, bright but limited headlight range, abysmal amount of interior storage space), but compared the comfort, fuel efficiency, and final price, I can certainly deal with them. Hands-down the nicest car I've ever had, it's actually nice to get into it during the evening commute because it's my comfy, quiet space.
