While other automakers drop sedans and hatchbacks in favor of crossovers, SUVs and light trucks, Lexus boldly forges on with what got Toyota’s luxury brand started in 1990: luxury sedans. Lexus builds crossovers and SUVs, too, but the heart of the brand beats in conventional models like the ES350.
Today, Lexus builds luxury sedans in four trims, ranging from the compact IS to the full-sized LS. Base prices range from $38,560 for the IS to $80,010 for the LS hybrid. We landed near the middle with a midsize 2020 ES350 Ultra Luxury, sticker-priced at $53,595.
