The New Lexus ES 300h Offers a Sound Proposition

The pleasantly-agreeable tones of this luxurious sedan are like music to our ears.

To borrow a quote from Elmer Fudd, the 2017 Lexus ES 300h is vewy, vewy quiet. So feel free to gently click your seatbelt into place, press the start button, and sit back for a listen ...


You won't hear a thing.


The tranquil cabin of this elegant sedan offers a variety of noise-reducing components including minimized wind noise, dampened soft sounds of turn signal indicators, and artfully-executed cupholder covers in the center console which are practically silent when moving to open or close. With just a gentle hum, the available Lexus memory system recalls all of your preset customizations including the 10-way adjustable driver's seat position, optimized outside mirror angles, and preferred steering wheel settings.

Slide the gear shifter right down into drive, and you're ready to experience one of four variable drive modes including a whisper-quiet battery-powered EV mode, a fuel-efficient ECO mode, a higher-performance SPORT mode, and an optimally-balanced NORMAL driving mode. Even with the aggressive appearance of the exterior design, the vehicle's sleek aerodynamic shaping creates a low coefficient of drag, reduces vibration, and works toward an increasingly-efficient functionality thereby giving the car a better city fuel-economy rating than most subcompact cars.

The extended platform with long wheelbase offers roomy cabin space for both front and back seat occupants who are comfortably nestled amidst the 15 speakers and 835 watts of Mark Levinson premium surround-sound audio technology. Radio volume knobs rotate smoothly and gradually rather than incrementally, thereby allowing a more agreeably-serene manner of adjusting music levels and sound distribution. The spacious trunk opens with a brief quiet tone and closes the same way with the simple push of the button. Similarly, a respectfully-muted beep (as opposed to a startling honking noise) indicates that the car has been locked and secured.


So whether you're hunting wabbits or sneaking up a great deal for a reasonably-priced new car, the driver-centric new Lexus 300h may be just what you're looking - or listening - for.
