The ES is a very compelling choice considering its low-price, minimal running costs versus rivals, and outstanding amount of standard equipment and safety features. It still lags behind rivals for performance and outright driver appeal, plus there is still some coarseness from its hybrid system under acceleration.

The Lexus ES is one of the slowest luxury cars you can buy, although it's unlikely to leave you cursing its lack of performance.
