2019 Lexus ES





I have to say I expected a bit more from the ES redesign.
I know it has always been based on the Camry, but it always managed to look quite different.
This one somehow seems more "Camry-ish" than before. 
And the trunk design looks really weird and heavy handed. 
Plus, that cut in the chrome behind the side window never looks good. It doesn't in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or the Cadillac XT4. And it doesn't here either. 

It's a bit hard to say about the interior. As all the official pictures are off the stupid "F-Sport" version.
(What is really the market for a fake sporty version of the Lexus ES???)
So there might be some wood trim somewhere in other versions (Like that trim on top of the dash and doors) 

I am not sure this is an upgrade from the current version. At least visually.
It also doesn't really look better than the Buick Lacrosse of the Kia Cadenza. 

As usual, power is from a 3.5 liter V6 or a Hybrid with a 2.5 Liter engine.

The interior just looks f'en ridiculous. Toyota/Lexus just needs to stick a fork in it and die.

You're right, Vince. This Lexus ES looks cheezy and very Camry-like. I don't see why folks would want to spend thousands on this over a fully-equipped Camry.

Damn that dash is ugly. The exterior is fine and the rest of the interior is fine, but who every approved that swoppy dash design should be fired.

It's been based on the Avalon since the last generation, not the Camry.

The ES has been based on the Avalon since 2012.

New ES looks good from the side and rear views but the front view is hideous! No buy because of front view!

I love it, inside and out. The shadow lines in these picts are a little awkward compared to others i've seen. My only complaint is the single digital speedometer. I prefer the old school needles

Love the interior, the exterior, especially the front end is absolutely hideous.
