2012 Lexus HS 250h

The Lexus HS 250h takes the 2012 prize, winning the Vincentric Best Value in America award for the first time. The solid combination of low maintenance and repair costs along with good fuel economy resulted in a 3% lower than expected cost-of-ownership in this premium hybrid segment, beating last year’s winner - the Lincoln MKZ. What does it mean? With the HS250h, you can enjoy the triple crown of environmental benefits, luxury comforts, and financial strength all in one vehicle.


Cost-of-Ownership Compared to Segment Averages

The Vincentric Best Value in America awards are based on the model level average of all trim levels within the model. Ownership costs for each trim level are measured at annual mileages of 10,000, 15,000, and 20,000.
