Lexus ES - Providing Comfort and Smoothness

Industry News

The 2010 Lexus ES may be the best vehicle for you if you're looking for comfort, smoothness, and isolation from the road in an upscale midsize car. Lexus' rock solid reliability only adds to its appeal, and the ES model outsells most of its competition easily. Lexus has tweaked the exterior styling of the ES, and redesigned its dashboard to increase storage capacity. Still, the ES is the same car we love to drive.

Also new on the 2010 ES is Lexus Safety Connect, which can automatically notify emergency services in the event of an accident. Unfortunately for the ES, it has been included in a massive and highly publicized recall due to a floor mat design that can trap the vehicle's accelerator pedal, causing unintended accelerations. The ES is available with just one engine, a 3.5-liter V6 putting out 272 horsepower. It sends power through a six speed automatic, which can be shifted manually. Although it's not as sporty as more performance oriented upscale midsize cars, the ES doesn't lack power.

The EPA rates the ES as achieving 19 miles per gallon in the city and 27 on the highway. The exterior has always been designed for conservative tastes, and subtle changes to the sheet metal for 2010 have done nothing to break that tradition. A revised grille, a bit of added chrome, and more sharply defined lights in front and rear add to the tailored look of the ES. Inside, the interior of the ES is often noted as the best reason to consider buying the car. The cabin of the ES would be fitting for a more expensive car.

Seats found in the ES are featuring a softer grade of leather than what many automakers use in their entry level luxury cars.
