2014 Lexus ES 300h vs. 2014 Lexus ES 350 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Lexus ES 300h offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus ES 300h and the Lexus ES 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Lexus ES 300h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus ES 350, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
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 Lexus ES 300h is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus ES 300h and the Lexus ES 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 300h is about the same width as the Lexus ES 350. When looking at overall length, the Lexus ES 300h takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 350.

Drivetrain
The Lexus ES 300h has much less torque than the Lexus ES 350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus ES 300h has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus ES 300h is significantly less powerful than the Lexus ES 350. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 300h and the Lexus ES 350. The Lexus ES 300h has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus ES 350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Lexus ES 300h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 350.
