Car video reviews:

Segment: Compact

Lexus has always made luxurious cars and the ES was no exception.

It offered comfort, style, elegance and softness for the pickiest drivers.

And when I say picky, I am only referring to those who were looking for comfort, because the ES offered little to no sportiness and not much feedback to feel in touch with the car.

The ES reached its 6th generation in 2018, a model that was based on the Camry.

The ES had an electric trunk that could only be opened using the key, however, the good part about it was that the load area held enough items. Plus, it was equipped with bags for shopping.

Even if the ES was not considered a fast car, it was equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, developing 268 hp, mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine was incredibly quiet and vibration free and the transmission did its job so well you could not feel the gear shifting.

The interior of the ES is what we call luxurious. While it did not have many gadgets, unlike the german cars, the clean look of the ES offered features any driver would appreciate.

The steering wheel had a nice wood and leather combination, as well as the door panels that were wrapped up in leather, with the exception of the trims which were piano black. The dash was covered in nice looking simulated leather.

The front seats were both ventilated and heated, as well as the steering wheel.
What was unusual was the way the driver could control the infotainment system. The ES had something similar to a computer mouse, with an “enter” button on the left side. Luckily, most of the controls were duplicated in the buttons.
