2020 Lexus ES 300h review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Lexus ES?

The Lexus ES is a five-seat mid-size luxury sedan that comes in gas (ES 350) and gas-electric hybrid (ES 300h) form. The ES 350 is powered by a 302-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the ES 300h’s hybrid drivetrain features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with total system output of 215 hp. Both models have front-wheel drive. Competitors include the Acura TLX and Lincoln MKZ.  

What’s New on the 2020 Lexus ES?

Android Auto smartphone connectivity joins Apple CarPlay, and most versions of the ES now have power-folding side mirrors. 

What Features in the 2020 Lexus ES Are Most Important?

Standard active safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning with steering assist. Available features include heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging, navigation and a Mark Levinson premium stereo.  

Should I Buy the 2020 Lexus ES?

The ES is a distinctively styled luxury sedan, and while the addition of Android Auto is welcome, the car’s Remote Touch multimedia system interface remains a frustration. The hybrid’s estimated gas mileage is underwhelming, too.

Reward Yourself

Comfortable quiet car with exceptional fuel economy. Lexus reliability and quality. One of the few misses is the placement of the CarPlay connector is under a panel on the console, I would prefer it to be hidden under the armrest. Hoping the next generation offers a plug in hybrid. I prefer hybrids to full electric.

4.7

Reliable, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable

This car is wonderful to drive and I love that the hybrid saves me a lot of money on gas compared to my previous vehicle.

4.9
