The ES has been completely redesigned for 2013, and while we’d call the new look significantly different inside, it's only somewhat evolved on the outside.

With some sharper details at the front and back, as well as a little more curvaceousness in the sheetmetal in between (especially back above the rear wheels), the 2013 ES models are just different enough to appear fresh, albeit too much in the stiff-and-formal direction.

The corners of the vehicle both in front and in back have been tucked a little closer than before, while corners are just a bit more squared-off, giving the ES a somewhat more trim look from some angles. From the front, the ES models get the new Lexus 'spindle grille’—we call it the hourglass grille—that tapers down to the bumper and then expands outward again below the bumper, continuing into the airdam, and more finely detailed headlamps with LED running lamps help punctuate. In back, the taillights now come to a point at a centerline that continues the beltline. All that said, the ES comes across as quite formal on the outside.

Just as its predecessors, the 2013 Lexus ES clearly puts comfort above absolute performance. The ES still drives that way—but you may be surprised to find out how athletic this smooth sedan can be when pressed to the task.

The ES 350 accelerates strongly with its 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6—essentially the same engine as in the Camry V-6, but with even more noise- and vibration-quelling measures. And it winds through the gears of the six-speed automatic transmission with such a seamless flow of power that on a straight road the speed can creep up on you, more so than in performance models. but because there’s so little engine noise the speed can creep up on you in deceptive ways. Shifts are a little lumpier on gentle takeoffs, but this is one responsive, fine, and very refined powertrain. 

Engineers have firmed up the ride and handling of the ES 350 a tad—just enough to give a slightly more buttoned-down feel but not so much as to mess with this model’s already established priority: comfort. Straight-line tracking is also greatly improved compared to the outgoing version, and the steering is weighted better, with a quicker ratio. The changes together give it a surprisingly athletic, if not nimble, feel. 

Lexus has made the centermost rake of the steering column a little closer to horizontal this time, and combined with seats that have a greater range of adjustability—as well as longer cushions for the front seats and available extendable thigh bolsters—the effect is the The new ES has about four inches more rear legroom, and its wheelbase is now two inches longer than the Camry on which it's based.

All ES models now include a 10-way power driver seat, while the available 12-way seat brings extendable lower cushions—a feature some of our long-legged editorial team would definitely opt for.
