Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Lexus ES is a roomy saloon that can comfortably transport four adults, and it has a surprisingly wide boot, although in terms of total volume, it's a good deal smaller than in some of the best luxury cars.
Front space shouldn’t prove an issue unless you’re related to the Jolly Green Giant, even with a sunroof fitted as standard. However, the roofline curves towards the rear and reduces head room, so while taller adults in the back will find they have plenty of room for feet and knees (Lexus says the ES has just 1mm less leg room than the giant Lexus LS), they’ll have considerably less room for scalps.
