2017 Chevrolet SS vs. 2018 Lexus ES 300h Review

Comparison Review

The Chevrolet SS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 300h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, the Chevrolet SS may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

With the Lexus ES 300h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet SS, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet SS is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet SS and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Chevrolet SS is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet SS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 300h.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet SS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet SS has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet SS and the Lexus ES 300h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet SS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus ES 300h.

The basic warranty of the Chevrolet SS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus ES 300h.
