Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

There's only one version of the 2018 Lexus ES 300h, but a couple of option packages are worth considering. The Premium package is inexpensive yet adds appealing luxury touches such as a power-adjustable steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings and wood trim (a definite upgrade over the standard piano black pieces).

PROS
Efficient hybrid powertrain returns high fuel economy
Luxurious interior with impressive fit and finish
Plenty of rear legroom, even for tall passengers
Lots of standard driver aids, and plenty of optional ones

CONS
Lots of noise while the electric motor recharges the battery
Enform app suite is a poor substitute for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
Grabby brakes make it difficult to slow down smoothly
Infotainment system's controller is frustrating to use

If you’re after a smooth, quiet, roomy, comforting luxury sedan that’s still good value, the 2018 Lexus ES may be one of the better choices.

Pros
Silent interior
40-mpg hybrid model
Larger inside than you’d think
Smooth ride
Engine pep

Cons
Brake feel could be better
Remote Touch interface clumsy, distracting
Grille doesn’t gel with rest of car
No Android Auto, Apple CarPlay

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Interior design
Bright instruments
No touch-sensitive panels
App-compatible multimedia system

Cons
Overpowering spindle grille
Remote Touch interface
Leather upholstery not standard
Unremarkable hybrid gas mileage estimates

By:

The MG GS is the brand’s first SUV, built to rival the Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar and Vauxhall Mokka X. The MG costs less than all those models and is also a little bigger so, in terms of value for money, it’s off to a flying start.

Pros
Decent looks
Punchy engine
Low price

Cons
Cheap feeling cabin
Firm ride
Small boot
