Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

There's only one version of the 2018 Lexus ES 300h, but a couple of option packages are worth considering. The Premium package is inexpensive yet adds appealing luxury touches such as a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings and wood trim (a definite upgrade over the standard piano black pieces).

PROS
Efficient hybrid powertrain returns high fuel economy
Luxurious interior with impressive fit and finish
Plenty of rear legroom, even for tall passengers
Lots of standard driver aids, and plenty of optional ones

CONS
Lots of noise while the electric motor recharges the battery
Enform app suite is a poor substitute for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Grabby brakes make it difficult to slow down smoothly
Infotainment system's controller is frustrating to use
