2013 Lexus ES 300h: Luxury You'll Like, Fuel Economy You'll Love
Getting a great luxury sedan that's comfortable and nicely designed is one thing, but when you add superb fuel economy to the mix, ain't that the bees knees?!
That's exactly what you get with the 2013 Lexus ES 300h, a hybrid sedan that will make you forget about visiting the gas pump for long stretches at a time.
The ES 300h is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor that team up to make 200 horsepower. The engine is linked to a two-speed continuously variable transmission.
Fuel economy is listed at a colossal 40 mpg city, 39 highway, and in our weeklong test drive, we did even better, averaging about 42 mpg in combined city/highway traffic.
