CanadianDriver has put up an interesting piece on the HS 250h interior as part of the website’s “Inside Story” series. Billed as a 7-day “review of interior comfort features, cabin controls, storage options, trunk space and under-hood accessibility,” this review features a non-Remote Touch equipped HS 250h, and describes the storage options available instead:
At the bottom of the centre stack sweep is a rubber bed flip-top cubby, easily accommodating smartphone-sized wireless devices. The locking glove box provides reasonable space, with a shelf for the owner’s manual wallet. Note the trunk opener lock-out switch. The centre console cubby has a coin holder, though no powerpoint or audio ports. Those are kept topside, at the front of the tunnel, with USB and standard audio jack ports.
The review also notes that the user-programmable Lexus Personalized Settings are controlled through the instrument panel on this non-navigation equipped car.
One correction, though, should be pointed out:
Now here’s a Lexus hybrid car feature that looks familiar; a puny trunk. Mind you, it seems almost as big as a GS 450h’s. Cargo netting is provided, with robust attachment points. Keeping you from getting soiled on the trunk exterior is an interior pull.
That’s 12.1 cubic feet for the HSh vs. 10.3 for the GSh; it “seems” that the HS trunk is about 2 cubic feet “almost as big.” The HS 250h actually has the largest trunk of all Lexus hybrid sedans.
