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

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

On snowy and icy roads, vehicles with traction-enhancing all-wheel drive are invaluable. But what if you don't want to get an SUV? Check out the 2019 Subaru Impreza. Not only is it the least expensive all-wheel-drive vehicle on the market, but it's also the only compact sedan to offer AWD — and it's standard.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive delivers secure handling and wet-weather traction
The cabin is quiet, comfortable and surprisingly roomy for a compact car
A healthy selection of advanced safety features is available on most trims
Available manual transmission for those who want to row their own gears

Cons
Slow acceleration, even with this generation's more powerful engine
Transmission is loud under heavy loads
Interior materials are lower-quality compared to many rivals
Hard to match fuel economy estimates in the real world

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Subaru Impreza is a sensible, right-price, low-compromise compact car.

Pros
AWD standard
Good road manners
Great safety record
Comfortable, spacious interior
Not a bad value

Cons
Interior could be more imaginative
Manual transmission lacks 6th gear
Won’t win a drag race
Crosstrek offers more flair
