Face-Off: Lexus ES vs. Toyota Avalon
Despite similarities, the sedans have big differences you should consider
There’s a reason Lexus and Toyota often sit next to each other in Consumer Reports’ reliability rankings: They’re made by the same manufacturer. It’s often the case that a Lexus is a more luxurious version of a Toyota vehicle.
Both were redesigned for the 2019 model year, and along with all-new styling inside and out, they use the same new platform found on other Toyota vehicles around the world. The cars offer V6 and hybrid four-cylinder engines, and standard advanced safety and driver assistance systems.
