Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)

3-Point Seat Belts for all seating Positions with Force-Limiting Pretensioners

TECHNOLOGY

Anne: Driver information Center with Trip Computer

Safety Connect phone system with one-year subscription

Backup monitor automatically engages when car is put into reverse. As always ladies, don't get lazy with this device - still turn around both ways to check for any blind spots.

Advanced navigation system included

Premium Audio System is truly wonderful in this vehicle... I heard instrumental sounds out of this system I have never heard before when listening to "Go Your Own Way" over the last 30 years. With a 6 disc CD changer.

USB Input; mini plug auxiliary input for MP3player

XM Satellite Radio for 90 days trial - that's too much of a tease and a bit stingy on a vehicle in this price range.

BlueTooth® technology included

Chuck: It's Loaded...

Smart-Access Key with Push-Button Start/Stop

Electroluminescent Optitron Gauges

Inside Auto Dimming Electrochromic rear-View Mirror with Compass

Driver information Center with Trip Computer

6-Disc In-Dash CD Changer, USB, I-Pod input Jacks

XM Satellite Radio with 90 day trial subscription

Bluetooth technology

Heads-UP-Display *The HUD could be adjusted up and down, but not side to side. I could only see half of it...so annoying!

Rain-Sensing Wipers

AESTHETICS & STYLING

Anne:  The car's interior is smart and attractive. The front looks like you are inside a Cessna Sky Catcher cockpit; really.

The exterior has something to be desired. Almost too much of a stately and mature look to it.

The heated seats were terrific as was the air-vent option is a delight on those summer days. All seats are mutli-positional and offer personalized, luxurious feel.

Premium Audio System is truly wonderful in this vehicle... I heard instrumental sounds out of this system I have never heard before when listening to "Go Your Own Way" over the last 30 years. With a 6 disc CD changer.

Chuck: The Lexus HS 250 looks are average at best. Although the finish on the vehicle is excellent, it still looks too much like a Toyota Corolla

WARRANTY

Anne: 48 month or 50,000 miles. The power train warranty extends to 5 years and 70,000 miles

Chuck: 48 Months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first

NON-TANGIBLES/OTHER

Anne:  While a great technological addition to the Lexus line-up, the styling is the one things I was disappointed with .The grill with its 'venetian blinds' looks too much like a Ford and the body misses the mark for a hot, luxury brand.

Chuck: The Lexus HS Hybrid 250 is the first Hybrid-dedicated vehicle for the luxury car company. It has a superior finish and an abundance of technological features.

Even with these new features is it really worth the $44, 967.00 as tested price? If you really want the Lexus badge, then it may be an option. If you're truly looking for an A-list Hybrid machine that will save you big bucks on fuel and the car, consider the latest Toyota Prius.
