Lexus ES300h Luxury with EP 2021 review: snapshot

The Lexus ES 300h Luxury is the entry point into the hybrid-only model
The Lexus ES 300h Luxury is comfortable, easy to drive and has many other excellent points which could be enough to make up for its less than dazzling looks.

The Lexus ES is available in one model – a petrol-electric hybrid called the 300h. But there are three grades, and the Luxury is the entry-point, listing for $62,525.

Coming standard on the Luxury is a 12.3-inch multimedia screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, sat nav, 10-speaker Pioneer stereo system, dual-zone climate control, a wireless phone charger, heated and power adjustable front seats, LED headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels.

The Lexus 300h was given a five-star ANCAP rating when it was assessed in 2018. Standard safety equipment includes AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane keeping assistance, blind spot warning and road sign assistance.

The ES 300h has a hybrid powertrain made up of a four-cylinder petrol engine making 131kW/221Nm, and an electric motor producing 88kW/202Nm.

Lexus says after a combination of open and urban roads fuel economy should be 4.8L/100km.
