Lexus HS for Sale by Owner


The Lexus HS was launched by Lexus in 2009 as an entry level compact hybrid sedan, after being unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in 2008. According to Lexus, the acronym HS stands for Harmonious Sedan. It was the first dedicated hybrid model under the Lexus brand. The HS 250h was also the first Lexus hybrid with an inline-4 gasoline engine. In terms of size, Lexus HS 250h fits right in between the larger Lexus ES and smaller Lexus IS. Lexus HS had many eco-friendly selling points apart from the hybrid engine, one of which was the use of Bio-plastic material in vehicle’s interior.
