The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Larger but leaner, the 2013 Lexus ES gains a hybrid model and some very attractive new styling to stave off strong new competition. The 2013 Hyundai Azera is still a good value, but now it offers real design appeal, confident performance, and a true luxury-car ambiance.
