Luxury Cars: Lexus ES 300h


While the Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited is a borderline luxury car, those that are shopping in the luxury category and want the best bang for their buck should look at the Lexus ES 300h. Also a hybrid, the Lexus ES 300h is actually very similar to the Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited. In fact, its starting price is actually cheaper at $40,260 and features a 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain that’s good for a total system output of 200 hp. Fuel economy figures are also identical with a 40-mpg city, 39-mpg highway. When it comes down to it, both the Avalon Hybrid Limited and the ES 300h offer great value for your money, it just depends on which brand and luxury amenities fit your tastes.

    Are you talking Prius Four or Prius V? The Prius Four, which is the normal body with the higher end trim level gets 50mpg overall not 44. The V drops to 44 City.

    I’ll believe that the auto industry is actually serious about quality of life issues and environmental impact, when I begin to see prices come back to something even remotely resembling sanity and practicality for ALL potential new-car buyers, not just the few with the money and political correctness combination, that is become the prerequisite qualification to participation in any real, meaningful capacity, within the obvious constraints and limitations this one area of ecological responsibility and non-hypocritical response to our myriad concerns over issues of planet-wide concern and activism.
