The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
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 Lincoln MKZ strikes out in a more confident direction, and places a big bet on best-in-class fuel economy and technology.
