2017 Lexus ES 300h review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: Lexus’ popular ES, a premium sedan that plays up luxury over sportiness, received a range of updates last year. The car received additional structural reinforcements to improve body stiffness and handling, Lexus says, while more dashboard insulation aimed to hush engine noise. The ES 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine while the hybrid ES 300h gets a gas-electric powertrain. Competitors include the Acura TLX and Buick LaCrosse.
New for 2017
The Lexus Safety System Plus is now standard. It includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam headlights. The Remote Touch controller also adds a Back button.

Most exciting car I've owned,

The Lexus ES300h hybrid sedan is the perfect investment to acquire luxury and utilize your sound judgment. It's a spacious car for a family up to five that will provide a smooth ride and fewer trips to the gas station, which gives you more time to do the things you love with the people that you love!

typical Lexus quality

I came out of an Ultra-Luxury LS430, so the bar was set pretty high. While this car is no LS430, it is everything I need....safety, reliability, and good mileage were important to me. This car delivers it all, and at about 38MPG.

Great car for daily commute
