As the full-size sedan ranks continue to shrink, the Lexus ES faces a different competitive set annually.
The Jaguar XF is a class above but is often discounted, and it’s a good choice if you can get past its so-so infotainment and occasional rough edge.
The Volvo S90 has been around for a few years, thought its sleek, sedate design still charms.
VW’s Arteon is new to the segment, and while it’s more of an aspirational choice than the others, it’s a decent value and can be had with all-wheel drive.
The Acura RLX is a rare, high-tech sight.
You won’t see another in your office parking lot.
Don’t forget about the Toyota Avalon, which offers Lexus-lite features at Lexus-lite pricing.
