Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Lexus ES has to compete with multiple executive car alternatives that focus on a sporty driving experience. If solely judged on this criterion, the Japanese saloon is sorely out-performed. That said, executive cars are assessed on a number of other key areas, such as refinement, comfort and interior quality. It is these areas where the ES claws back ground.
