The New 2010 Lexus HS 250h: Reviews and Specification



The 2010 Lexus HS 250h hmm..When one visits the Lexus HS250h website, there's a very big emphasis on ecology and economy plus the lux stuff. Why in the world would these people be offering this car with a MOONROOF? It lets in light and heat, wasting it. Meanwhile, they have a Prius with a solar panel that runs the a/c or could be used to help charge the batteries. To me this is marketing baloney. They aren't really committed to ecology until they take advantage of the energy falling on the Lex. This Lexus is a hybrid and as such is powered by a 2.4-liter inline-4 that works in tandem with a pair of electric motor/generators. Total output is 187 horsepower that is sent to the front wheels through a specialized continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). We timed an HS 250h from zero to 60 mph in 8.7 seconds -- a fairly quick time for a hybrid. Fuel economy checks in at 35 mpg city/34 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined, which is about what most other midsize hybrid sedans also achieve.The 2010 Lexus HS 250h's powertrain is commendably smooth in its transition from its low-speed, all-electric mode to combined gas-and-electric power. Floor it, and after a slight pause the HS quickly gathers itself up and accelerates with a linear rush of power. It's no sport sedan, of course, but this is about as quick as it gets for an economy-minded hybrid.
This car is being built for people that want a prius with lexus service and build quality. I am excited to drive this vehicle. When the car emerged on the web I knew it was the car I wanted. Then in January, I saw it at the international auto show in Detriot and hated it. I thought it looked just like a corolla, but as I have seen more and more of it, it has grown on me. It's back to being the car I want most
At highway speeds, the HS 250h's cabin is impressively free of wind and road noise. The suspension does a good job of soaking up rough pavement, and the sedan is also pleasingly composed during cornering. Turn-in is crisp, and combines with the car's flat cornering poise to make the 2010 Lexus HS 250h seem lighter than its 3,700 pounds. The electric power steering is precise but lacking in feel. One other minor downside is the overly touchy feel of the brakes, though familiarity does help to relieve the problem.
