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

Published on Mar 12, 2019 416,235 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 6 дней 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 6 дней назад Seemed like a better choice than BMW 5 series, until i heard its Fwd.
  • Hugo Fernandes
    Hugo Fernandes 6 дней 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 6 дней назад @Hugo Fernandes , this mpg is imperial, so it's more like 6.1 l/Km (still not bad)
  • Nikola Milovanovic
    Nikola Milovanovic 6 дней 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 5 дней 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 5 дней назад Well that's nothing amazing for a hybrid
  • Hugo Fernandes

  • MatWatsonCars
    MatWatsonCars Неделю 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 Неделю 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 Неделю 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 Неделю 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.
  • Tom Idiculla
    Tom Idiculla Неделю назад I actually want the edits and zooms. It's really funny

  • Dominik Reisenbauer
    Dominik Reisenbauer Неделю 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 Неделю 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. Неделю 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.
  • car journalist

  • mctaboo
    mctaboo Неделю 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 Неделю 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. Неделю 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 Неделю 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.

Kudos to the editing person for all the detailing, and the camera person too!!! The way you review cars is so very fresh, I wish we in India had cars reviewed the same way. Thank you and all the very best!!
  • tecnogadget2

  • Charles-David Bérubé
    Charles-David Bérubé Неделю назад @Easwar Hariharan I'm Canadian, we're one of the leading country in reusable energy. And i was in no need to come up with a better insult. It's just a bad car considering the e class and 5 series are much better in every way except reliability but then again, people lease those cars, they don't car, they want luxury and the es does not offer.

  • AutoBum
    AutoBum 6 дней 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 6 дней 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! ^^
  • Speed Demon

  • Tyler Beeson
    Tyler Beeson 6 дней 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. )

  • Charles-David Bérubé

  • Neil Todankar
    Neil Todankar 6 дней 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 6 дней 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 6 дней назад @Jack Z my country is shit? Yeah right, that's why we're ranked top 3 in every category for good living and quality of life. But okay, if this is your definition of shit country: yours must be in the top 3 shittiest countries in the world.

    Charles-David Bérubé 6 дней 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 6 дней 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.

    Jack Z 6 дней назад Charles-David Bérubé it sounds bad, you don’t wanna admit it cuz it’s Mercedes, LC500 sounds better in every way except slower, and u will kiss that 5.0 NA’s ass if it’s Mercedes

    Charles-David Bérubé 6 дней назад @Jack Z ohh you're one of those stupid ones. Well when you get cancer and need to sell your house, car and personal stuff to pay the bills, you'll be jealous of me waiting 2 more hours to get free medical aid. Anyways, we are doing much better than you, our population is much happier than yours since forever. We enjoy life more than you. Having a strong economy does not make you a good country for its people. China has a better economy than yours, yet, would you live there?. Your logic is bad. Anyways, we have the best maple sirop in the world. So case closed, we're better. Sorry for being better tho, we tend to make americans jealous ;)

    Jack Z 6 дней назад Charles-David Bérubé I’m sorry but Mercedes are shit except high end models, even E class, suspensions break on E class and they don’t even give a damn about it, BMW Audi and Lexus are much better, luxury and over all quality? It’s subjective, and performance doesn’t belong to E class unless u talk about AMG, anyway u’ve never bought a luxury car i can tell

    Ivan Liao 6 дней 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 6 дней 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 6 дней 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

    Alexander Blazek 6 дней назад @White Boy except the shitty ui and cheap plastics u wont find in a bmw or merc
  • White Boy
    White Boy 6 дней назад @Alexander Blazek I disagree I think out of the 3 BMW has the cheapest interiors. The 3 series Interior is on par with a Honda Civic. Mercedes interior is the best followed by Lexus.

    Knight Industries 5 дней 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
