Lexus ES 2019 in-depth review - see if it’s better than a BMW 5 Series?

Published on Mar 12, 2019 590,474 views

This is the Lexus ES! This hybrid Japanese saloon is designed to take on top-of-the-range competitors such as the Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class. The exterior design certainly stands out compared to the more ‘conservative’ and well-known German models, but can it do enough to disrupt the high-end saloon market? Stick with Mat in his latest in-depth review to find out!

  • trytthisnow
    trytthisnow 2 месяца назад Lexus always seems to have a problems with headroom in their car, i drove around in a mk3 Gs300 for 3 days, and got a neck pain for a week.
  • trytthisnow
    trytthisnow 2 месяца назад Seemed like a better choice than BMW 5 series, until i heard its Fwd.
  • Hugo Fernandes
    Hugo Fernandes 2 месяца назад 46mpg (about 5.1l/100km) for a car this size, in real road conditions i assume, it's surprisingly good. But too bad they ditched the GS and it's RWD from Europe. Let's hope for a awd version, at least, but i doubt.

  • Jorge Gomes
    Jorge Gomes 2 месяца назад @Hugo Fernandes , this mpg is imperial, so it's more like 6.1 l/Km (still not bad)
  • Nikola Milovanovic
    Nikola Milovanovic 2 месяца назад I 'm even glad you forgot about mpg because it is not the point. Hybrid powertrain is all about cost of ownership. Would you invest in diesel, 50-60k ? Hybrids don't have clutch, no turbo, no problems with PDF, injectors, EGR valves, alternator, starter, no ad blue.. And no review on youtube that focuses on those things. And everyday driving is much smoother and effortless than any diesel. Still, love your reviews :-)
  • Nico Weyers
    Nico Weyers 2 месяца назад That's pretty decent, considering it is a petrol... But I still won't buy it over an Audi, Mercedes or BMW. In fact, I didn't. I looked at this, and then bought a BMW 630d GT with xDrive
  • Ryan Mansfield
    Ryan Mansfield 2 месяца назад Well that's nothing amazing for a hybrid
  • Hugo Fernandes
    Hugo Fernandes 2 месяца назад @Jorge Gomes obrigado Jorge. Estes rosbifes com as suas manias imperiais são muito esquisitos. A única unidade imperial que devia contar é a da cerveja. 😀 Abraço

  • Andy Ang YS
    Andy Ang YS 1 месяц назад wellington z Honda is only $30 k for a 5 year COE left, equivalent to a BMW 3 series in europe.
  • wellington z
    wellington z 1 месяц назад @Andy Ang YS I wasn't referring to coe cars. This is brand new. So compare it to a brand new car.
  • Andy Ang YS
    Andy Ang YS 1 месяц назад wellington z No! Im trying to state that a brand new luxury car in Europe costs the same as a Honda 5 year old in SG. If you are looking to afford a car in SG you can always look into the lower tiers of brands like Kia, Toyota, Honda and Mitsubishi.

    kubanskiloewe 3 часа назад (изменено) guys as a german and driving over 20 years our brands i bought a 10 year old Lexus Hybrid with 220000km on it. This car i sat in , close the door and wow! its quiet ! ANd the V6 Hybrid is very nice even when pushing hard. Much better than these 4cyl.hybrids. ANd i cant agree with this tester which always complain about the mouse touch system....i have no problem with it all. i have a Tom Tom in a other car and you have also to put the finger on a touch screen which is not easier imho. But this is overal marginal thing for me. here a drive on autobahn ; sadly the micro did not record the real noise, btw the quietness ! HYbrid check was passed well as well as AC check. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bSB_TdBA8A&t=57s

  • Mike van Gaans
    Mike van Gaans 3 недели назад Absolutely true! Nor Mercedes, nor Audi nor BMW will last as long as a Lexus; they all break down at around 200.000km, as a Lexus can drive up to 300.000km with no problems at all.

    qsn 1 день назад @wholeNwon "21 years" "never again". Mind explaining? You bought a german car ages ago and your opinion hasn't changed? Nice one
  • wholeNwon
    wholeNwon 1 день назад @qsn I bought 2 new ones. Since then I have lived very happily with a Lexus. In the interim, of course, I have observed the travails of friends and neighbors with German (and "British") brands and have read published genuine owners' surveys (as distinct from the fake "surveys" published by a famous advertising company). Based on these I say, "Never Again!" Incidentally, there are owners of the make I had who claim that my years were the best the company ever produced!!
  • MatWatsonCars
    MatWatsonCars 2 месяца назад This is the second of our new review style. Following feedback from the last one we've reduced the length by a few mins and cut down on the ammount of camera transitions such as zooms and spins etc so it feels more 'normal'. Let me know what you think.
  • John Tremor
    John Tremor 2 месяца назад As a photographer, the lower number of transitions made the video look more clean. This is a better style in my opinion.
  • Motor Machi
    Motor Machi 2 месяца назад MatWatsonCars Great video as always. I’d buy that car just for the special coffee cup holder feature. Very thoughtful and very Japanese.
  • patriotbarrow
    patriotbarrow 2 месяца назад I was personally ok with the rhythm of the old videos. A few very well put together bite-sized segments like 5 good/bad things about the car and very good pacing. This feels more like your run-of-the-mill review you can find on lesser channels. My 2p.

  • Dominik Reisenbauer
    Dominik Reisenbauer 2 месяца назад why not in 4k as always? I think you don’t need to reduce the length of your videos or change something in the way of filming - your videos are one of the best ever in the whole car-yutube scene! so don’t change your style because of some idiot who don’t know how to appreciate it!

  • DION Pappas
    DION Pappas 2 месяца назад Matt, can you spend less time reviewing cup holder and door bin spaces??? Even if it won't fit a 2 litre bottle, I personally won't bother. The people who buy these type of cars won't be going camping)) Btw, most of the cars these days have cupholders as standard even not so expensive ones like the one you reviewing in this video.
  • S.T T.
    S.T T. 2 месяца назад Stock 5 series starts at 37 grand. When you spec it and load it to ES level, it will easily kick the 50 grand line. Lexus has it almost all stock. Reliability comes stock too. So to brag about not having leather stitching on the lower door panels is laughable. Perhaps Mat should get a Mansory to upgrade his cars, so there is nothing to torture his OCD.

  • mctaboo
    mctaboo 2 месяца назад Good improvements though it always been great anyway.. Hands down the best car review channel on youtube and absolutely the best reviewer.. You would be perfect for Top Gear with a different cast completely.. cause only you and Jeremy Clarkson are genuinely funny. If I may make a suggestion here; at the end of the review just before the "avoid , consider..etc" it would be great if you compare it "overall" to the best 2 cars of it's class such as Mercedes E or Audi A6. Wish you all the best all the way from Saudi Arabia.
  • Sequoia Van Camp
    Sequoia Van Camp 2 месяца назад I agree with the consensus view here. The post-production pans and zooms don’t feel right in a car review video—they’re trendy on other types of youtube videos at the moment, but they’re jarringly amateurish here. I also don’t think you need to show the car being driven in a town to demonstrate its ride quality/maneuverability—at least not at the expense of the other ride and handling section, which was more informative and looked nicer, probably because it was on a closed road and could be filmed in a more professional way.
  • Brian Mwaura.
    Brian Mwaura. 2 месяца назад Love the zooming actually, they do work in the right situations, such as comic relief. However, the driving part feels a bit rushed, especially on the twisty corners part. Length shouldn't be an issue for people who are definitely interested in the review.
  • David Frank
    David Frank 2 месяца назад (изменено) Can't beat back to basics, previously it was beginning to feel like a PowerPoint presentation from the MD (who just got this new fangled software) in the early 2000's.

Thank you and all the very best!!
  • tecnogadget2

  • Vijay Srinivasan

However, delusional eurocentrist docuhes like you try to convince us otherwise. Fuck you!

  • José Sánchez
    José Sánchez 2 месяца назад (изменено) Why don't you comment on reliability and the cost of owning? A Lexus, being produced by Toyota, is waaaay cheaper to own and maintain over the lifetime of the car and has a much higher quality of components (everything not merely aesthetic) than it's German rivals. The Lexus can go for thousands of miles after the similar German cars have become endless money pits. I love your videos, and it would be very enlightening if you could comment on reliability, expected cost of maintenance, etc. for those of us who like to keep our cars for a long time and would like to see programmed obsolescence disappear from the car industry. Just compare the quality of the old mercs with the modern ones... I think it's worth mentioning that some brands make their cars to last much longer than others. It is very valuable and interesting information for buyers. Thanks for your great job!

    mojojoedwards 2 месяца назад Totally agree with you. Not many car reviews talk about the reliability of a car. Only a true car person would know - owner of a 2013 FJ Cruiser comparing with a mate's newer X6 or LR3.
  • dulsaf2630
    dulsaf2630 2 месяца назад (изменено) Not really, where I live. Lexus parts will cost u double of German rival and over time Lexus dashboard and leather will crack. Something, I have never seen in any German cars. I am starting to doubt you even own a Lexus.

    Huy Thai 2 месяца назад dulsaf2630 not really the case in the US. Parts for Lexus vehicles are only slightly more expensive than Toyota’s, while the Germans are far more expensive.
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 1 месяц назад @dulsaf2630 So you say "over time"... You know what happens to the German rivals over time? Nothing. They don't last for more than 3 years! By the time their Leather could naturally crack, the car is gone. Stop arguing about Lexus not beating your little preferred ones in reliability, because you got no arguments. There are no arguments.
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 1 месяц назад Exactly what I think is much needed in car reviews. It makes a huge difference. If you compare Lexus with its German counterparts not taking reliability and running costs into consideration, it simply won't prove better. Once you do include reliability, you see no point in ever getting a Mercedes or BMW, unless you enjoy spending huge amounts of money to get new ones constantly with little to no advantages over the previous models. #lexuslove

    Purplefabian 3 недели назад @Méh Imre lexus is not cheaper than the Germans in Europe
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 3 недели назад @Purplefabian Yes they are. Compare them with the same equipment level and you will find the Germans are costlier. It's just that you have to add all the options separately that you get standard in equipment levels in Lexuses.
  • Purplefabian
    Purplefabian 3 недели назад @Méh Imre im not against buying a lexus but they are way too overpriced because of low demand in Germany. Just checked for the Lexus es and they are all over 50k euro the equivalent e class, a6 or 5 series are cheaper
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 3 недели назад @Purplefabian But look at the equipment levels dude! The Lexus got everything as standard. After ticking all the same options on the Germans, you're looking at a much more expensive car! Especially when you take maintenance costs into consideration.
  • Purplefabian
    Purplefabian 3 недели назад @Méh Imre the germans also have better infotainment and options like ambient lighting, more powertrain options and the used car market options are way more thats why Lexus cannot compete over here. In America its probably a different story
  • Paras Shah
    Paras Shah 3 недели назад We just booked this car here in India. I've used almost all the German luxury cars and this is the first time I'm switching to Japanese. What i really liked about this car is the silent drive and the low cost on maintenance. We have generally pay, approx 35k for service, however lexus will be costing us just about 15k every 10k kms. When i further inquired about costs of other general parts like brake pads, they would cost us 5.5k unlike 18-20k for the German makes. More interesting fact is, i have heard many different sort of complaints with almost every german car, be it maintenances or after sale service, however, never have heard anyone complaining over a lexus.
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 3 недели назад @Purplefabian Some people buy cars as status symbols. And have the money to buy a new one every 3 years because the "old" one ran out of warranty and keeps breaking down. Anybody with a little sensibility will choose reliability over an infotainment system that will look outdated in a couple years anyways. Lexus is the sensible man's luxury car, and we sure are lacking those people in Europe. Just a bunch of competitive scum trying to show off and fit in.
  • Purplefabian
    Purplefabian 3 недели назад @Méh Imre I still drive a 2009 e250 diesel with 200k km, I could buy a new car every year but im going to drive it until problems start appearing and it gets expensive. Happy the car doesn't have any problems but I guess its because of maintenance and the way I drive it. But I agree with reliability being a priority if I decide to buy a new car in the future
  • Méh Imre
    Méh Imre 3 недели назад @Purplefabian Taking good care of your car will make even the least reliable last long, hope you get to keep your e250 for years to come! :)

  • AutoBum
    AutoBum 2 месяца назад @Charles-David Bérubé it's not that Lexus doesn't try. They go through intensive reliability testing on every engine components before they're released to the public. The last thing you want is something unreliable coming from Toyota and people shout and rant about it in the media. What Toyota has done is great, and I do love they're the most reliable when it comes to car buying. If I want something faster or more fun to drive, I can go get myself a BMW, but for people who commute to work everyday on a busy road, Toyota is superb.
  • TechPassion
    TechPassion 2 месяца назад @AutoBum That's true. Toyota does put effort into making their cars, and I think both the Japanese and European luxury cars have different things you can appreciate. Also long story short, just buy what you like! Some prefer a Lexus, others like BMWs and Mercs, no harm done to anyone for wanting something different! ^^

  • Tyler Beeson
    Tyler Beeson 2 месяца назад This really doesn’t compete with the 5 series because it’s FWD. It’s considered an “entry level luxury car” in the US and is probably Lexus’ most popular model. It’s basically an Avalon or Camry with a much nicer interior and different exterior. They’re good cars, but cheaper than the 5 series, and definitely doesn’t drive like one. They’re very floaty and comfy. Lots of understeer and such. The GS is the competition for the 5 series and that drives like a true sport sedan. It’s rear wheel drive, very balanced, and on a unique chassis only shared with Lexus vehicles (pretty sure the LS was on the same chassis. )

  • Neil Todankar
    Neil Todankar 2 месяца назад @Charles-David Bérubé key words being 'except reliability'. Hmm, I almost forgot how important that one aspect was. Otherwise, Lexus isn't boring like the many others in class. Doesn't need to be in the tech race since it's unique in its own way. That's what keeps its design fresh for a decade or two.
  • Charles-David Bérubé
    Charles-David Bérubé 2 месяца назад @Neil Todankar when saying reliability is lexus strength, it does not means the germans are unreliable. They are actually really reliable, they only need more attention since they do pack much more tech. If you're in the market for a luxury car, reliability should not be in your top 3 priorities. It should be: ride quality, performance and overall quality/luxury. Those 3 criteria are ruled by mercedes.

  • Charles-David Bérubé
    Charles-David Bérubé 2 месяца назад @Speed Demon well he is right, the 4l v8 turbo is better in every way. Gets more power, sounds as good, gives more options to tuning, is more fuel efficient, is lighter. The 6.2* L was really good and we all miss it but the 4L is a better engine.
  • Charles-David Bérubé
    Charles-David Bérubé 2 месяца назад @Ivan Liao well this review says otherwise, and so do i. A mercedes rides like nothing else: it's the perfect balance between soft and sport suspension. A lexus is very flotty, too flotty and it drives like a grandpa car. No fun at all and a lot of oversteer.

  • Ivan Liao
    Ivan Liao 2 месяца назад Charles-David Bérubé we have had all kinds of German cars, to be honest. Mercedes was the one with least problems with us, we had 3 Class, 2 E Class, none ever had major break downs. Can’t say the same for BMW and Audi, BMW was the worst. However, that being said we also had lexus and infiniti. Mercedes rides like everything else, nothing special. Both infiniti and lexus have better rides but they are softer on suspension so more body roll but more comfortable over bumps. Both infiniti and lexus were so much better in rides that our 2016 E class just sits at home and NO one wants to touch it.

    White Boy 2 месяца назад @Charles-David Bérubé all 3 are great cars. The ES doesn't come close to a E class or 5 series. Rwd vs fwd. And the price tags are way off $15k base price difference. The Lexus is a great car. But you have to compete a 5series or E class with a GS. And I'd place the GS in between the E class and 5 series
  • White Boy
    White Boy 2 месяца назад @Alexander Blazek this isn't really a high end car though. It's a entry level luxury car. It's Lexus cheapest car they offer a discount it's pretty nice for the price but for me FWD = no go. The IS interior is way nicer then a 3 series and right next to a C Class. The GS interior is nicer then a 5 series and on par with a E class. Lexus competes very well all 3 are great cars

  • Knight Industries
    Knight Industries 2 месяца назад @Tyler Beeson yep, exactly. As I mentioned above, in my country (Australia), there is a pretty significant price difference to an ES when compared to an E-Class or 5 series. Natural competitor is Lexus GS. Here, the ES is about the same money as a C-Class C300, which is no doubt a much sportier vehicle, but the Lexus offers a quality/size value equation that the Germans just can't match. Furthermore I think the ES 350 would be a much more convincing driver's package however it's unfortunate that this has been pulled from several markets. In America you can buy an ES350 and in F Sport guise
