Lexus ES Overview
Lexus ultimately hurt the ride comfort and made the controls complex in its redesign of the ES. In our tests, the powerful 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic got a good 25 mpg overall. The ride is decent but not as plush as before, and worse with the optional 18-inch wheels. Handling is sound but unexceptional. Inside, the quiet cabin looks good at first, but cheap touches are apparent. The control interface is distracting and convoluted unless you skip the navigation system. The hybrid is more appealing, thanks to its combination of size and luxury, and impressive 36 mpg overall and 44 on the highway in our tests. But a Camry provides much of the same for less money.
