Completely redesigned for the 2013 model year, the newest ES delivers unprecedented levels of luxury and style never before seen on an entry-level luxury vehicle.  It’s worth arguing that while the ES was once the only vehicle in the Lexus line-up that wore the crown with the words “entry-level” inscribed upon it, there are now [...]
