Lexus offers a variety of sedans ranging from the IS to the LS. Originally an upscale clone of the Camry, this front-wheel-drive sedan serves as a stylish and more attainable luxury model than some other more focused models in the lineup. Lexus now offers two different powertrains in the ES. The ES350 is powered by a 268-bhp 3.5l V6. The ES 300h is a full hybrid which pairs a 2.5l four-cylinder gasoline engine with electric motors for increased fuel efficiency. With the explosion of models in the entry-level luxury segment, there are numerous alternatives available for less money, but the ES remains as the most approachable path to Lexus ownership.
