Lexus 300h is a hybrid quiet luxury

Posted: June 16, 2013

The Lexus ES 300h is the automaker’s resident in the entry-level luxury subdivision, a growing community.

To do it substituted a four-cylinder gas engine, two motors and a 36-module battery for the V-6 in the conventional ES 350. In the process, it up with a midsize entry-level sedan with an EPA city estimate of 40 m.p.g. — twice what the ES 350 gets.

In to the hybridization, the 300h benefits two significant changes in the ES for 2013.

The ES, which had been based on the Camry platform, is now built off the Avalon’s (which is, essentially, a Camry structure). The result is an four inches of legroom in the

The new ES also makes a more statement, punctuated by a pizazz-producing grille. Add some interesting and rather muscular wheel and you have an ES taking a significant away from its bland

The interior presents another surprise. It’s also pleasing, more aesthetic its predecessor.

The ES 300h shares its with the Toyota Camry Both employ a 2.5-liter and two electric motors to obtain a rating. The Camry, however, better EPA numbers (43 city and 39 vs. the 300h’s 40 and 39), probably it weighs 225 pounds less.


Weight also plays a albeit a modest one, in the ES advantage over the 300h out of the The 350 gets from 0 to 60 in six seconds while the 300h needs That, of course, has more to do the 350’s extra 68 horsepower its 160 fewer pounds.

Its funny how perceptions can sometimes trump the Even though it doesn’t as quickly as the 350, the 300h more sprightly, more particularly at stoplights in Sport when the instant gratification those traction motors you scampering.

Like the Camry Hybrid, the uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to convey the motivation to the front drive And it does this in a very seamless manner. It is certainly one of the hybrid CVTs I’ve with.

The CVT is buttoned to a selection of modes, which try to tailor openings and steering assist to objectives. Normal is geared to driving. Eco saves fuel by throttle response and chintzing on which isn’t a great in Center City in August.

In Sport, the hybrid power display is replaced by a tachometer, and the matches shifts to engine/motor

There’s also an EV mode under certain conditions, allow you to drive with electric power for up to half a at under 25 miles an hour. In words, it could save you gas in driving or during expressway

The 300h, like its ES forefathers, was intended to be athletic. Its orders to be competent, comfortable, and a reasonably bite at the Lexus apple. And formula made it quite

The hybrid ES handles decently, its tires don’t afford a lot of in a fast corner. Like electric power steering the 300h’s isn’t generous its responsiveness and feedback. Probably to its green, fuel-saving tires, its comfort isn’t quite up to ESs

But it is a quiet, luxurious ride for who never did want to go head-to-head Dale Earnhardt Jr.
