Cons

Mediocre handling and ride quality
Low predicted reliability rating

The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors

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: 
edmunds.com

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

Cons
Vague hybrid steering,
leisurely standard-model dynamics.

By: 
caranddriver.com

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
