2018 Lexus ES Review

Overview
It radiates luxury. It’ll take on a challenging road and leave you refreshed and ready when you get where you’re going. With so much comfort and performance the Lexus ES is an entry-level flagship. Choose from two styles the ES 350 or the Earth-friendly ES 300h Hybrid. With 268 V-6 horsepower and a class-leading forty inches of rear-seat legroom the ES 350 blends style and power. Or go for the ES Hybrid’s forty-miles-per-gallon combined EPA rating. Lexus Display Audio brings HD radio Bluetooth real-time traffic and weather information and more to an eight-inch touchscreen. Scout GPS Link comes standard and onboard 3-D navigation is available. Lexus Safety System Plus uses radar and cameras to help keep you out of trouble. High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control Pedestrian Detection Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist—it all adds up to class-leading safety technology and a five-star safety rating. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an ES that’s all yours. The Lexus ES. Elegant performance.
Technology
The Lexus ES is a born game changer. Lexus Display Audio+ brings HD radio Bluetooth real-time traffic and weather information and more to an eight-inch touchscreen. Scout GPS Link comes standard and onboard 3-D navigation is available. Lexus Enform voice-controlled App Suite and Destination Assist are available. Mark Levinson provides an available premium sound system. And what’s that in the dashboard? It’s an analog clock for that added touch of class. The Lexus ES. It puts the world at your fingertips.
Safety
Every Lexus ES comes with the radar- and camera-based driver-assist features of Lexus Safety System Plus. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control Pedestrian Detection Lane Departure Alert—it all adds up to class-leading safety technology and a five-star safety rating. If there’s a car—or pedestrian—in front of you your ES will slow and even come to a stop in some cases. If you start to drift out of your lane your ES will let you know—and take corrective action if you don’t. The Lexus ES. Game-changing safety.
Performance
The first Lexus ES put the European mid-size luxury sedan world on notice. Then came the ES Hybrid and the shift was complete. Zero to sixty in 7.1 seconds and class-leading rear-seat leg room. That’s today’s ES 350. Or go green and get up to forty miles to a gallon of gas in today’s ES Hybrid—and that’s in the city! Feeling frisky? Turn the Drive Mode Select dial to full Sport. You can make up for it later by turning it back toward Eco for a while. The Lexus ES. It’s the original game changer.
