Advantages and disadvantages of 2013 Lexus ES 300h Sedan

The EPA says the gasoline-electric hybrid ES 300h gets 40 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Compared with the ES 350, that's an advantage of 8 mpg in highway driving, while the hybrid's city number nearly doubles the economy of the conventional ES. The ES 350 is rated at 21 mpg city, 19 mpg less than the hybrid ES 300h. For drivers who spend a significant amount of time in traffic, the savings offered by the hybrid could add up quickly.

The hybrid ES 300h gains its massive efficiency advantage by pairing a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor generator and delivering power through a continuously variable transmission. The ES 350, meanwhile, uses a conventional V6, giving it more power and better performance.

The hybrid's battery claims some trunk space, too. The ES 300h has 12.1 cu-ft for cargo while the conventional ES 350 offers 15.2 cu-ft. That difference equates to space for about two airline carry-on bags.

For many drivers, the reasons for buying a fuel-efficient vehicle go beyond just saving money on fuel. Better economy contributes to lower emissions and reduced pollution, making more efficient cars the greener choice. But for the fiscally responsible luxury car driver, the economic advantage of the ES 300h, which costs $2,750 more than the ES 350, works out in the long term, too. Assuming 12,000 miles per year and $3.75 per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline (recommended for both vehicles), the fuel savings makes up for the price premium after 3 years and 8 months of ownership. In exclusively city driving, the break-even point occurs in less than 3 years.

The only disadvantage is less trunk space and slower performance.

Money for gas?

If you buy the Hybrid cars, you save more money every year on gas in comparison of gasoline cars and diesel cars. and also, they are some cheap and expensive and if you are interested in Luxury then the 2013 Lexus ES 300h Sedan is your choice because it is an awesome car and has many features as listed above.
