2013 Lexus ES 300h 4dr Sdn Hybrid User Reviews
Quiet and GreenBy Eric Lemoine (I am an Owner), Apr. 19, 2013The new look ES just looks great, and the fact that it's now available as a hybrid makes it really awesome. The performance isn't amazing, but that's almost expected as a hybrid - it's no Tesla. But... more
2013 Lexus ES 300h OverviewThe Lexus ES enters its sixth generation with a completely new exterior, interior, and chassis. There's even a new model, too--the hybrid ES 300h.
The front-wheel-drive ES is based on the Toyota Avalon, rather than the smaller Camry as in years past, and the longer wheelbase affords a roomier interior, particularly for rear passengers. The car features independent suspension all around for a smooth, effortless ride.
The ES 350 comes powered by a flexible 3.5L V6 that makes 268 horsepower and delivers an estimated 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. This is mated to a 6-speed sequential-shift automatic. The all-new ES 300h Hybrid utilizes a 2.5L 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine that is paired with an electric motor. The duo produces 200 horsepower and returns an estimated 40 mpg city and 39 mpg highway. The 300h features an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission to deliver seamless, efficient shifts.
The ES is rich in standard equipment, with power locks and mirrors as well as one-touch up/down windows, 10-way power adjustable front seats, one-touch open-close power moonroof, dual-zone climate control, leather seating and much more. Technology features include steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise control, driver-selectable engine mapping, 8-speaker sound system and Bluetooth hands-free technology.
Options and packages take the ES to another level. Among the amenities available include hard-drive-based navigation with voice command, heated and ventilated seats, a panorama glass roof, a power rear sunshade and a Mark Levinson premium sound system. Other goodies include a lane-departure warning system, radar-based cruise control, parking assist and blind-spot monitoring.
2013 Lexus ES 300h Model Changes
For 2013, Lexus' mid-level luxury ES sedan has gotten a complete redo. Whereas the previous ES came based upon the Toyota Camry, the sixth generation model's underpinnings are borrowed from the larger Avalon sedan. This means a longer wheelbase and corresponding increase in rear legroom. The ES features an all-new look that is both athletic and restrained, with a deep and distinguished front grille and attractive curves at the rear.
The ES 350 comes powered by the proven 268-hp, 3.5L V6, while an all-new ES 300h Hybrid--the first such car in the ES range--derives its 200 hp from a 2.5L Atkinson Cycle four-cylinder with assist from an electric motor. The combination is good for an EPA-estimated combined 40 mpg.
Both models come loaded with standard amenities, technology, and safety features. The base ES 350 is priced at $36,995.
2013 Lexus ES 300h Value
The Lexus ES occupies a highly competitive luxury segment against cars such as the Acura TL and Cadillac CTS. With its all-new sheetmetal, long list of standard features, and incredible safety features, however, the ES 350 has much to recommend it. And with the addition of the new ES 300h Hybrid, Lexus has upped the sedan's appeal immensely, setting it apart from the rest of the crowd.

Improved chassis dynamics; terrific interior room and comfort levels; V6 power; hybrid efficiency
