The Lexus ES isn't a bad choice – especially if you're a company car driver and don't want (or can't have) a plug-in hybrid. It's just a pity that the engine sounds coarse when you work it hard, and that the infotainment system is a faff to use.

The most luxurious ES is quite a leap up in price over the rest of the range, but comes lavishly equipped. You get a head-up display, 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium surround sound system, heated rear seats and a powered bootlid.

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.
