Combining elegant style and impressive fuel economy, the 2017 Lexus ES 300h is a remarkable hybrid luxury sedan.

Exterior design

With a starting MSRP of $41,820, the ES 300h conveys its hybrid identity through subtle design cues, including a trunk lip spoiler and blue hybrid badges. “Subtle,” though, is hardly the word for the overall design.
