It works smoothly and the V6 engine provides great power. Inside, this Lexus is made of high quality materials and offers plenty of space in both rows. However, the 2018 Lexus ES is not perfect. Some competitors are better managed and have easier information and entertainment systems.
Once the definition of a conservative sedan, the current generation 2018 Lexus ES has adopted a bold style with clean lines and the aggressive Lexus grille. However, it retains an elegant appearance that matches the 2018 ES and ES hybrid with the Lexus IS Sport Sedan and RC Coupe. The extended fenders and narrow windows give this Lexus a strong masculine appearance and the lines flow smoothly from nose to tail. We love the twin sport exhaust pipes of the ES 350 and can switch from standard 17 inch wheels to a cool 18 year old.
The 2018 Lexus ES luxury sedan features luxurious interior materials and the most demanding finish and finish expected from Lexus vehicles. All models feature a centrally mounted multimedia display over the central air vents, controlled by a Remote Touch system similar to a console mounted mouse, which some find too sensitive and frustrating to use. The shift mode selector in front of the shift lever allows drivers to switch between Normal, Sport or Eco modes at the touch of a button. The seats are comfortable and the interior is spacious enough for four adults. The legroom of the rear seats is wide.
With a 268 horsepower engine, the standard 3.5 liter V6 engine on the 2018 Lexus ES 350 offers many grunts for the sedan to evolve quickly. It is connected to a 6 speed automatic transmission that is a model of smooth operation. Saving fuel is good for the class, but if saving fuel is part of your luxury experience, then the Lexus ES 300h Hybrid is what you need. The 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine is paired with an electric motor to develop a total power of 200 horsepower and direct it to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). It’s enough power for everyday driving, while offering fantastic fuel economy. Both 2018 Lexus ES models are available in front wheel drive and both work with 87 octane gasoline.
The 2018 Lexus ES is sold at one time and starts at $ 38,950, which is less than many mid-size luxury cars. Some packages and several independent options are available between $ 200 and $ 3,500. A fully loaded IS 2018 can cost nearly $ 51,000.
