2013 Lexus ES300h Review

(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The 2013 Lexus ES300h offers a hybrid engine in an entry-level luxury sedan. Essentially an ES350, the ES300h is based on the Toyota Avalon and borrows its engine from the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The ES300h provides consistently predictable comfort with a spacious interior, a suitable ride, and fuel-economy that’s impressive even for a hybrid. A broad range of luxury and technology options help maintain the ES300h’s place as a good choice for buyers seeking a luxury hybrid at entry-level prices.
