Sedan: 2014 Lexus ES

Luxurious cruiser with smooth, quiet ride and available hybrid powertrain; new LED lighting, Siri voice-command

Like the rest of the lineup, the Lexus ES gets the new Siri handsfree control system – Lexus actually calls this Eyes-free because you don’t need to look at a screen – which actually works for you, rather than the other way around. It’s one more added bit of comfort for the Lexus sedan sales leader, which has a very loyal customer base, one built on a tradition of quiet reliability, front-wheel-drive traction and unfussy design. Other minor changes for 2014 include available bamboo interior trim and LED-based foglights.
