The Buick LaCrosse has been updated for 2014, and is about the same size–if not a little larger–than the ES.
It doesn't carry the same luxury cachet or dealer service that you'll find with a Lexus, but the LaCrosse is a slightly better value for the money.
Cadillac's XTS is more expensive than the ES, but it also comes with a more sophisticated infotainment system, CUE, than Lexus Remote Touch.
The XTS also has a wide array of active safety features not even available in the ES.
If you're looking for all-wheel-drive, the Buick LaCrosse, Lincoln MKS and Cadillac XTS are your answers.
The Hyundai Azera may not sound like it fits here, but it offers some Lexus-like luxury ambiance and a lot of features for the money.
Otherwise, the Lexus ES 300h is hard to beat; other options include the Mercedes-Benz E 350 BlueTec and BMW ActiveHybrid 5, but both cost significantly more money.
