The 2019 Lexus ES has its work cut out for it.
Our favorite in its diverse competitive set is the sublime Volvo S90 for its attractive interior and balanced driving dynamics.
The Lincoln MKZ is its polar opposite: attractive looking, but not particularly good to drive.
Like the ES, the MKZ offers buyers a choice of gas or hybrid engines priced about the same.
The Acura RLX dazzles with its smooth powertrain, but its anonymous styling doesn't lure many shoppers into showrooms.
It's worth looking at the Jaguar XF, a sporty sedan that's often discounted.
For the budget-minded, the Toyota Avalon offers similar performance without the low-gloss sheen.
