Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Lexus ES 350 Sedan is offered in the following styles: 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 8A), F SPORT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 8A), Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 8A), and Ultra Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 8A). Lexus ES 350 Sedan models are available with a 3.5 L-liter gas engine, with output up to 302 hp, depending on engine type.

Pros
Excellent ride quality, especially with the F-Sport's adaptive dampers
Surprisingly capable handling
Comfortable and mostly upscale interior for the price
Dramatically improved technology compared to the previous generation

Cons
A few interior plastics feel thin and cheap
Efficiency-first transmission doesn't match the F-Sport's character
Some controls require using the infotainment interface
Finicky infotainment interface

By:

Pros
F Sport athleticism,
shapely sheetmetal,
gorgeous interior,
whisper quiet.

Cons
Vague hybrid steering,
leisurely standard-model dynamics.

By:

The 2019 Lexus ES promises to be both sedate and sporty.

Pros
Best-looking ES ever?
F Sport looks promising
Apple CarPlay, finally!
Thrifty hybrid

Cons
No all-wheel drive
Will it really be sporty?
Infotainment controller could be complicated
Shoppers want crossover SUVs, which the ES is not

Fully redesigned for 2019.Standard turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive.More upscale interior materials.Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.Part of the second K900 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Interior materials are much nicer than those in previous model
Even fully loaded K900s undercut rivals by many thousands of dollars
Spacious trunk space

Cons
Turn-by-turn navigation gives too many traffic alerts

If you’re reading this and saying, “I didn't know Kia made a luxury sedan,” you’re not alone. The K900 is a muscular four-door stuffed with leather, wood trim, and tech all as standard. The base engine is a 311-hp V-6; a 420-hp V-8 is optional. The steering is numb and the suspension is soft. Kia wants buyers to think the K900 is a value compared with its pricier competitors, but we’d rather spend less for a car that is more about driving than gadgets. An all-new K900 goes on sale in late 2018.

Pros
A vast improvement compared to the previous model,
competent driving dynamics,
unquestionable value.

Cons
Owners may suffer from brand envy,
interior is derivative,
doesn’t excel in any single area.

The 2019 Kia K900 brooms some of its big chrome, and ups the ante with twin-turbo power.

Pros
Less stuffy style
Thrusty twin-turbo V-6
More interior space
More standard safety tech
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Styling drama lives entirely inside
More old-school luxe than sporty
