Lexus ES Hybrid Performance

Other Years

Test say that the 2014 Lexus ES doesn’t have as much as the gas-only ES 350, but most that it offers enough for most drivers. One reviewer that the CVT and the torque of the electric make the ES Hybrid feel at city speeds. The ES 300h has Eco, Sport and EV (electric) modes, and some auto say that Sport mode the powertrain more responsive.

The is geared more toward than sport and reviewers say for most Lexus shoppers, won’t be an issue.

It’s quick in most normal situations, and apart from its serene demeanor in city (made possible by its electric-only at low speeds), it steers, brakes and just like the ES 350. Edmunds The hybrid ES 300h has power, but adequate acceleration, and the ‘sport’ setting helps more in getting the car up to speed. Kelley Blue Book While the 2013 ES is certainly a competent driver than the model, it’s still a way off from being classified as a sedan. And while that be an issue in a car like the BMW 3-Series, perfectly fine in the ES. — Lane News (2013) we might not have predicted as going into this after driving both ES back-to-back it’s the hybrid ES that comes off as the far more car. It’s not

as quick as the V-6 — the run to 60 mph takes a 7.6 seconds — but in around-town its instant-torque electric motors and CVT make it feel livelier the hybrid weighing 161 pounds than the ES 350). — Trend (2013)

Acceleration and Power

The 2014 ES 300h has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor that 200 horsepower combined. A continuously transmission (CVT) routes to the front wheels. The ES 300h an EPA-estimated 40/39 mpg city/highway, is better than the fuel of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and Infiniti Q50 Hybrid. but not as as the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid ’s economy estimates.

Test say that while the Lexus ES is slower and less powerful the gas-only ES 350, it still has power for daily driving. One says the CVT is loud and unrefined and there was more power in but most reviewers think the ES superb fuel economy is the tradeoff.

Although the hybrid ES is noticeably quick than the V6-equipped ES most buyers will its acceleration fully acceptable in driving situations. — True, the four-cylinder gas engine in the ES can’t match the ES 350’s six for but it’s respectable. Overall, the simply comes off as the more and engaging machine. — Trend (2013) At full the car hustles well enough, but it the passing confidence deserving of a badge, and the droning, here-it-comes CVT anything but refined. — (2013) The hybrid offers willing power, even for at highway speeds, and it launches the car zero to 60 mph in an impressive 8.1 seconds. MSN (2013) With 200 horsepower on the ES 300h isn’t a slow but by no means is it quick, either. Left Lane News

Handling and Braking

Reviewers say the ES 300h has a smooth and comfortable but it isn’t very fun to drive. they point out that not meant to be sporty. One test says the regenerative brakes a nice pedal feel, is a rare compliment for a hybrid.

notes that the Lexus ES is less composed around with numb steering and a amount of body roll.

No one will ever deem the ES sporty, but few people will it to be. The steering is commendably accurate for a sedan, though predictably, levels are light. Brake feel is also impressively for a hybrid, and you’ll be hard-pressed to the transitions between the hybrid regenerative braking (which recharge the battery pack) and of the conventional brakes.” — Steering felt nicely and though the ES 350 entered a corner a touch more alacrity the hybrid, the ES 300h did not feel heavier. — The New York (2013) The steering is light and body roll is quite and the tires howl like a dog at a passing ambulance when the car is through a turn. — MSN The ES 300h rides like a luxury car should, with the suspension allowing for a reasonable of gusto in the bends. — Lane News (2013)
