The Lexus HS was a compact executive car that was produced by Lexus from 2009 to 2012. It was the first dedicated hybrid vehicle from Lexus, and was based on the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The HS was available in a single trim level, the 250h. The HS was powered by a 2.4L inline-4 engine and an electric motor, which combined to produce 187 horsepower. The HS had a fuel economy rating of 35 mpg city/34 mpg highway.
The HS was praised for its comfortable ride, quiet cabin, and fuel efficiency. However, it was criticized for its lack of cargo space and its uninspiring driving dynamics. The HS was discontinued after the 2012 model year due to slow sales. It was replaced by the Lexus ES 300h, which is a larger and more luxurious hybrid sedan.
The Lexus HS was a good car, but it was not a great car. It was let down by its lack of cargo space and its uninspiring driving dynamics. If you are looking for a comfortable and fuel-efficient luxury sedan, the HS is a good option. However, if you are looking for a car with more cargo space or a more engaging driving experience, you may want to look at other options.
