Sentiment Score 52%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The economy-focused hybrid has its merits: it’s cheaper to buy than a full plug-in hybrid, doesn’t require messing around with cables and should be endlessly reliable. But in an otherwise capable luxury car the expected level of effortless performance and refinement is lacking. For traffic-clogged traffic, its simplicity is ideal. We’d opt for a base spec with a Takumi pack rather than a fully-loaded Takumi model.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lack of refinement
  • Noisy CVT gearbox

autoexpress[2]

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.

Pros
  • High-quality interior
  • Good fuel economy
Cons
  • Only one powertrain available
  • Only four-wheel drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The entry-level Lexus ES 300h starts from £35,150. For £38,150 you can step up to an F Sport, with more aggressive styling and 19-inch wheels. The top-drawer Takumi costs £45,650 and boasts a Mark Levinson sound system, head-up display, 360-degree camera and LED headlights.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good standard kit
Cons
  • Hybrid powertrain can’t match its diesel rivals
  • Lacklustre infotainment

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2019 Lexus ES offers one of the most comfortable cabins in the business. With the hybrid battery sitting underneath the back seat, the ES 300h offers the same 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space as its ES 350 kin. As great as the ES is, its poor infotainment interface alone could be a deal-breaker.

Pros
  • Sleek styling
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent fuel economy
Cons
  • Poor infotainment
  • Lack of standard tech

The ES 250 offers 13.9 cubic feet of trunk space, a good amount to be sure. An 8-inch infotainment screen is included on lower-end models, but a beautiful 12.3-incher is available. The 2021 ES sedan starts at 41 grand and change including $1,025 in delivery fees.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior

Cons
  • Lackluster infotainment
  • Lack of tech

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Despite its sporty appearance, the ES 350 is a comfy-cozy cruiser above all. It's powered by a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6, with 302 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Lexus' Safety System 2.0 suite of driver-assistance technologies is standard on all trims.

Pros
  • Comfy, comfy ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Excellent fuel economy
Cons
  • Lack of driver-assistance tech
  • Terrible trackpad

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
Lexus' second-gen ES 300h lives up to this standard Luxury trim. The aerodynamic lines and stiff platform of the ES suggest a dynamic ride. But while it delivers smoothness, the 300h isn't very sporty. The hybrid system performed efficiently, with seamless regenerative braking.

Pros
  • Sleek styling
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent fuel economy
Cons
  • Not very sporty
  • Lack of driver assist features
