Lexus continues to push the envelope when it comes to offering vehicles that are environmentally friendly, stylish and cool. The ES 300h holds with tradition by offering all three and performing well while on the road. We recently got an opportunity to test the Lexus ES 300h for one week and here is what we learned.
Typically, most sedans find it difficult to offer ample leg space. The Lexus ES 300h stands as of one of the more comfortable sedans due to the ample room that is provided for the drive and passengers. Anyone person 6-feet or taller will find front and rear-seat space appealing, especially during long journeys on the road.
The style is fierce
The first thing that’s easy to notice on the Lexus ES 300h is its visual appeal. It comes with Lexus’ signature spindle grille and features LED headlights which gives it a fierceness that is often missing from other sedans. The 17-inch alloy wheels, L-themed taillights, and adds to its impressive look.
Technology is a cut above
Lexus has made technology an important feature within all of its vehicles. Because we are so connected to our cell phones these days, Lexus allows for a smoother transition to connectivity while driving the ES 300h. The Lexus Inform Remote allows drivers to control the vehicle remotely through the use of their cell phones. Withe the system, drivers can lock and unlock doors, control climate, and start and stop the vehicle. There is also Lexus Inform Service Connect which will allow drivers to view upcoming maintenance when needed. The Lexus Inform App Suite allows drivers and passengers to connect online to find dining, events, and music.
Driving is superior
Driving the Lexus ES 300h is similar to driving a vehicle that floats in time. It comes with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, electric water pump, electric power steering, and an integrated hybrid electric motor/generator. When driving on the highway, the car is rather silent from outside noise and the suspension allows it go over road bumps with ease.
Overall, the Lexus ES 300h is a vehicle for the established career-driven individual who enjoys a touch of fun with size and luxury.
