Lexus' mid-level luxury ES sedan got a complete redesign for 2013, so the changes for 2014 are minor. LED fog lights are now standard.
Improved chassis dynamics; terrific interior room and comfort levels; V6 power; hybrid efficiency
The Lexus ES occupies a highly competitive luxury segment against cars such as the Acura TL and Cadillac CTS. With its all-new sheetmetal, long list of standard features, and incredible safety features, however, the ES 350 has much to recommend it. And with the addition of the new ES 300h Hybrid, Lexus has upped the sedan's appeal immensely, setting it apart from the rest of the crowd.
