The modelRead full Lexus ES review
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.

This trim level adds sportier interior and exterior styling, as well as larger 19in alloys and an adaptive suspension system. You can add the Takumi pack to this to basically get a top-spec ES, just with the same sporty styling treatment as F Sport.

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. Its 2.5-litre petrol engine and electric motors team up to deliver a maximum of 176bhp, and if you put your foot down hard from a standstill, you'll be doing 62mph in 8.9 seconds.
