2020 Lexus ES 350 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.

Perfect But For One Annoying Thing

Beautiful, comfortable, responsive... my only issue is my last three new Lexus' have had annoying, unfixable buzzing from the dashboard. Unforgiving for a car almost $50,000. The dealer said in each case they would have to remove the dashboard. No thanks.

OUTSTANDING SEDAN

I have owned Lexus ES 350's over many years. My current ES is definitely the most outstanding. It has great styling, comfortable and quiet ride. Every Lexus that I owned had excellent reliability. Have received many compliments on the looks. My only complaints are rear seat leg room. Also, the front could have been designed more conservative. Again, overall an outstanding car.

5.0

My sexy car with all the bells and jingles

The car is excellent, however, a touchscreen would be helpful and if it’s cold outside sometime the mouse system takes a while to warm up to make adjustments. My only issues. Otherwise, I’m very pleased, my 3rd Lexus.
