It’s clear that there’s been a huge curve in the effectiveness of hybrid engines, and the 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago, IL is no exception.

 

This couldn’t have come at a better time. With its combined estimated EPA fuel consumption rating of 40 MPG, the advantages in economy are clear. However, the 2017 ES 300h has a stunning amount of class and luxury to offer, making it a beautiful ride with amazing packages and features.

 

1.     Smooth, Effective Steering, Braking and Safety

 

The performance of the 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago is something to write home about. The 2.5L inline-4 engine is capable of top speeds of 112 MPH, which is only slightly less than the V6 model, not to mention the massive fuel consumption savings.

However, an acceptable 200 horsepower isn’t everything. It’s technology like the electric drive motor with EV mode and high output, and a 2.9 turn, lock-to-lock electronic power steering system that provides power and handling as well.

 

The 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago has an 11” wheelbase. Among many Lexus car models, it keeps up with Chicago Illinois weather, with front and rear advanced suspension parts from MacPherson, as well as a ECVT-I transmission and front wheel drive. The 11.6” ventilated and 11” solid disc brakes also feature ABS, EBD and Brake Assist with regenerative technology.

 

2.     Excellent Smart Multimedia and Technology

 

Performance isn’t everything. Luxury Lexus car models found anywhere in downtown Chicago, IL now offer a high-resolution color LCD screen and a premium 15-speaker 3D surround sound audio system from Mark Levinson.

 

But this hardly covers the surface. Options like a complete suite of smart apps from Lexus, as well as across the board app connectivity are a great asset. You’ll have access to hands- and eyes-free Siri, location services, and Lexus’s Enform Service Connect, for traffic as well as weather and temperature in Chicago today.

The 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago, IL is a surprising Lexus deal with no-touch sensitive panels and audio controls built right into the steering wheel.

 

3.     Masterfully Cut and Designed Body and Interior

 

With 5 seats, there’s a lot of accommodation. It’s been recognized for having amazing rear legroom, and with the panorama glass roof, there’s enormous headroom in the entire cabin, as well.

 

A power rear sunshine adds a touch of comfort and luxury. However, with options like professionally crafted perforated leather-trimmed seats, the Luxury and Ultra Luxury packages offer levels of class and sophistication. The Nuluxe interior trim, which comes standard with both the 350 and 300h is a safe, comfortable and durable option as well.

 

Ambient lighting for mood, and an illuminated entry system are cutting edge. Add in the dual-zone climate control with a smog sensor, and the 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago is looking favorable for its basic trim level.

 

4.     Class-Leading Safety Technology

 

As we’re quickly noticing, smart safety features, along with the recent amazing improvements in hybrid engines, are placing high demands on their respective technologies.

 

The 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago meets this with aplomb. First, Lexus’s game-changing Safety System Plus technology is now standard for this model. Features like CRS tether anchor brackets for kids in the back seat, advanced crumple zone design in the body, and an impressive vehicle proximity notification system are now basic.

 

However, when dealing with adverse weather conditions in Chicago, traction control, smart stop braking and a windshield wiper de-icer are all standard safety features, as well.

 

Final Thoughts...

 

We’ve been blown away with the performance, economy and extravagance of the 2017 Lexus ES 300h in Chicago already. However, what’s comfortable to know, is that previously advanced, exclusive features have become more affordable. At the same time, you never have to compromise on high class.
