we averaged 34.4-34.6 mpg
Consumer Guide




Depending on what your expectations are of this high-tech compact, the EPA fuel economy ratings for the 2011 Lexus HS 250h, of 35 mpg city, 34 highway, will either impress or leave you wondering why you wouldn't simply get a higher-mileage hybrid.

Our editors have found those figures to be perhaps slightly optimistic, as they often are for hybrids. This editor saw about 30 mpg keeping with fast-moving Orange County traffic but reached a 46 mpg average in exceptionally gentle, controlled conditions on level roads. In a follow-up drive with the HS, we saw 32 mpg over about 100 miles of mixed conditions.

That said, 35 mpg in city driving is pretty impressive, and beat only by a few other vehicles.

Conclusion

While the HS 250h might present fuel economy numbers that aren't impressive to the hard-core green shoppers, it's one of the greenest luxury picks on the market.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
