Pros Paint, looks all angles very good. MPH I don't care about the city I get 44 mpg on the freeway that's my commute. Fill up 10 gallons regular every two weeks, smiling to the bank. Interior finish could not be better feels good controls lots of fun!
Cons Don't know of any after a month of driving
Summary Smiles at the gas pump! Car looks ' a step above' the rest in the parking lot. Controls; heads up NAV system awesome! Bluetooth phone, IPOD music , USB connect perfect!Never read the manual.
Acceleration from 75MPH to 100 is the sweet spot cars disappear in the rear view mirror quick. Handles very well. My commute is so relaxing now I actually enjoy the hour ride in the perfect ergo seat!
Pros The key feature for city driving, beyond the low emissions, low fuel usage at city speeds, is the often overlooked immediate access to acceleration because you have 100% torque the moment you step on the accelerator! Both the electric motor and gasoline
Cons There are NO real cons per se!
This is NOT a Prius, as some have suggested, NOR is it a Camry in disguise, as others have suggested.
My previous Lexus GS had a beautiful interior and leather finishes and, whilst this vehicle has a very modern inte
Summary I reside in TORONTO, Ontario, Canada and during the month of February, attended the Toronto International Auto Show. The show was BETTER than the past 2 years BUT not as good as 2000 - 2006.
Regardless, I noted that ALL of the manufacturers, Audi and Mercedes included, have "cheapened" the interior finishing of their vehicles. The ONLY two manufacturers that seem to be keeping the quality up are Lexus and BMW.
Last year, I almost switched to a BMW 328 xi but opted to acquire another Lexus, a Lexus HS 250h. I like my car - VERY much; the hybrid technology has impressed me, more than I thought it would. The finishes are interesting too, as they are primarily composed of recycled materials, so I have liked it for many reasons.
While at the show, I also noted another all Hybrid by the Lexus division of Toyota, the CT 200h; what a GREAT car! Well built, nicely finished and AWESOME pricing. VERY impressed! The new Prius at Toyota caught my attention again as well! Toyota is ON their game again and is shows!
Not to hype hybrid technology, nor Toyota products but I have been asked, more than with any other car I have owned as an adult, how I liked my Lexus Hybrid?

I replaced a 2006 Lexus GS 300 AWD, 12 months ago, with this Lexus, a 2010 HS 250h. Surprisingly, now that I have driven it for some time, it is turning out to be one of my favourite cars ever, unlike the GS which turned out to be one of my least favourite. The HS 250h has been a pure inspiration both technologically and in terms of anticipated drive quality versus real world experience which has surpassed my wildest expectations. Great car, with better than expected performance, handling and all around driving pleasure.
Now that the dedicated hybrid units have been on the road at Lexus in the form of my HS 250h model, even your competitor in the car ratings area, Edmunds, is giving them great reviews.
As well, the original hybrid vehicle by Toyota out of Japan, the Prius, is now over a decade old and they are holding up "like new" over the decade.
That speaks to an ongoing commitment to quality!
Pros Fit & finish; road noise fairly low; good instrument night lighting
Cons Hybrid tech not worth the price in fuel econ; engine drone on acceleration; graunchy feeling brake with inadequate effectiveness; ride harshness on small impacts; poor small item storage; bizarre-feeling lane keep assist; novocaine steering feel.
Summary A huge mistake for me; this car has virtually no driver involvement and too many sacrifices in driveability to get only minimal fuel economy benefits. A gimmick-laden excuse for what is really an upgraded Toyota.
A Prius would've been a better choice and saved me a lot of $$.
Poor cargo volume, cramped rr passenger leg room...this car is the answer to a question nobody asked.
Next stop, VW Jetta TDi Sportwagon
Pros love the car lots about versatile interior loads of technology roomy great gas milage generally great interior
Cons some hard un lexus like materials
Summary this car is first of its kind and it class leader better then mkz hybrid to my opinion some softer materials would be nice overall great sub midsize car
Pros Highly sustainable, non-petroleum plastics.
Cons I love this car.
