Lexus ES saloon - Reliability & safety
Lexus has a first-rate reputation for reliability and lots of safety tech is included
The model is new to the UK, but the latest Lexus ES is actually the seventh generation of the car for Lexus, and its second-best-selling model globally, behind the Lexus RX SUV. This and the fact it shares underpinnings with the Toyota Camry – a car that has built its entire reputation on reliability – means we’d be amazed if it cause many issues for owners.
Lexus is currently riding high in first place in our 2018 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, and owners consistently tell us its dealership network is the best in the country.
The ES has been crash-tested by Euro NCAP, scoring five out of five for safety. It’s fitted with Lexus Safety System + as standard, a suite of safety kit including autonomous emergency braking that can spot pedestrians during the day and night, as well as cyclists during daylight hours. An advanced set of headlights will also be available with 24 LEDs that automatically adjust for the traffic and road conditions.
