Tirekicking Today: 2010 Lexus HS 250h hybrid

First dedicated hybrid model from Toyota’s luxury division is loaded with available technolgy, yields satisfying road experience by James M. Flammang 2010 Lexus HS 250h hybrid sedan LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Toyota and its Lexus luxury division have been in the forefront of hybrid-powertrain vehicles for quite a while now. Claimed to be the world’s first dedicated luxury hybrid, the new HS 250h is Lexus’ fourth hybrid model, joining the RX 400h crossover SUV, GS 450h sport sedan, and full-size LS 600h L luxury sedan. Though its fuel economy comes nowhere close to that of a Toyota Prius, the HS gives Lexus a reasonably thrifty sedan to satisfy environmentally-conscious ...

Lexus HS 250h: a Functional, Small Car that Happens to be a Hybrid by…

Lexus HS 250h: a Functional, Small Car that Happens to be a Hybrid The littlest Lexus may become the biggest seller. The HS 250h is a compact, two-mode hybrid sedan capable of 35 mpg around town and 34 on the highway. Pricing starts at a $35,075 and can push nearly $50,000 with options for the Premium model, today’s test car. Lexus has had limited success with some of its hybrids, the GS 450h, LS 600h and RX 450h, the latter of which has been the most popular of the group. The debate for consumers is price and that the company’s standard models are just so efficient that absorbing the added cost of a hybrid doesn’t make economic sense. The HS will be different because ...

2010 Lexus HS 250h — Car Maintenance and Car Repairs — DriverSide

2010 Lexus HS 250h What’s to Like There is a lot of technology in this car, including Lexus’ mouse-like force-feedback Remote Touch controller, a massive navigation screen, a heads-up display and lane-keep assist. A cushy interior with plush, comfortable seats and ample rear leg and headroom thanks to a high roofline and contoured front seats means passengers won’t feel cramped. EV and ECO modes for the hybrid drive system will please hybrid car junkies. What’s Not to Like While certainly an improvement over existing products, fuel economy of 35 mpg isn’t as high as we’d hoped for, and, in fact, almost matches the BMW 335d on the highway. There may be ...

2010 Lexus HS 250h Test Drive: Performance, Interior, Handling, Specs…

2010 Lexus HS 250h Test Drive: Performance, Interior, Handling, Specs and Opinion The new 2010 Lexus HS 250h combines the performance of a V6 with the mileage of a four-cylinder economy car using an advanced hybrid gas-electric powertrain. Hybrid drive systems can be designed to boost mileage as in the Prius or enhance performance as in the LS 460. The Lexus systems are a modular technology and can deliver any mix of the two. The new HS 250h falls somewhere in the middle of the hybrid spectrum. The result is a clean, efficient luxury car with good numbers both in power and fuel economy. The HS 250h gets an EPA-estimated 35 mpg in combined city and highway driving yet can accelerate from ...

2010 Lexus HS250h Hybrid – Instrumented Test – Car and Driver

2010 Lexus HS250h Hybrid The Prius of Lexuses proves how tough it is to have your luxury and your mileage, too. There are luxurious cars, and there are fuel-efficient cars. There are even some that offer moderate levels of both characteristics. But no vehicle has managed#x2014;or even attempted#x2014;to take luxury and fuel economy simultaneously to such high levels as has the 2010 Lexus HS250h, the industry#x2019;s first dedicated luxury hybrid. Think of it as the Prius of Lexuses or the Lexus of Priuses#x2014;your choice#x2014;and you won#x2019;t be far off. If any company can pull it off, it#x2019;s Lexus.

2012 Lexus HS 250h — HybridCars.com

Photo Gallery Compare the Lexus HS250h! If you’re thinking about buying a Lexus HS250h, you might also consider an Audi A3 TDI or a Lexus HS250h. Compare these vehicles. Never let it be said that high-mileage hybrids are grim, joyless, or Spartan. The 2012 Lexus HS 250h sedan was the smallest and most economical car Lexus had ever built when it went on sale in late 2009 as a 2010 model, but it’s unquestionably luxurious. Lexus has noted that more than 60 percent of luxury-car buyers would consider a hybrid if one were available, so Lexus gave them an option. Official EPA mileage for the HS 250h is 35 mpg city/34 highway/35 combined. Lexus says the HS 250h qualifies as a Super-Ultra-Low-Emission-Vehicle ...

More Research Links The Lexus HS 250h is a short-lived entry-level luxury compact four-door sedan that the Japanese auto manufacturer Lexus formally introduced in 2009 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, although it was previewed at the Detroit show a year before. It went on sale in Japan in July of 2009, and it reached the United States in August of 2009, as a 2010 model year vehicle. Unlike most of Lexus’ previous gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles, in which a hybrid drivetrain was fitted to an existing model to make a new version, the Lexus HS 250h was the first Lexus intended to be a dedicated hybrid, and was designed and engineered as a hybrid car from the ...

Lexus HS 250h Review — Research New & Used Lexus HS 250h Models | Edmunds

Used Models While the idea of an environmentally responsible luxury car may sound like a contradiction, Lexus hoped to prove otherwise with its HS 250h. Smaller than the automaker’s midsize ES 350, the Lexus HS 250h was powered by a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain that was more potent than that of a Prius. The result was fairly lively performance and good fuel economy. As for luxury, the Lexus HS 250h had a relatively roomy interior, plus the expected number of high-end features. But this distinctive combination never really clicked with consumers, and Lexus ended production after a short three-year run. As a used model, the HS 250h is an agreeable choice, but keep in mind that ...

Review: 2010 Lexus HS250h

Review: 2010 Lexus HS250h 2010 Lexus HS250h — front side When we first drove the 2010 Lexus HS250h. we were puzzled by it. Neither fish nor fowl, it seemed an uneasy marriage of Lexus lines and luxury with a Toyota Prius-like dedicated hybrid shape and powertrain. We’ve just spent a four-day weekend with a glossy black 2010 HS250h, the Premium model with all the goodies. And now that we’ve spent more time with the car, we find we’ve warmed up to it. (For reasons we won’t go into, our photos didn’t come out. Sorry.) The HS250h is a definite departure for Lexus, and a car you have to take on its own terms—just like the 2010 Toyota Prius with which ...

EDITOR WES RAYNAL: For all that’s going on underneath the car—the electric motors whirring, the regenerative brakes regenerating, the engine shutting off and turning back on—this sure is a boring car to drive. I mean, 187 net hp? The car is so pokey in Eco mode, it feels like less than half that hp number, and the Power mode is barely marginal. The CVT doesn’t help; it’s awful, as are all CVTs that I remember driving. And the car sounds rough and nasty when you accelerate hard, which you have to do just ...
