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
