  • 2019 Lexus ES 300h

    Lexus unveiled Tuesday its newest ES sedan, and the mid-size luxury stalwart appears to have an edgier attitude. The big news for readers interested in green cars is that the new ES 300h hybrid is rated at 44 mpg, up 10 percent from the previous model.

The Camry was extensively redesigned for 2018, so the ES gets all the same updates, with more Lexus frills, of course. The new platform, which it shares with the Camry and Avalon, should give it a better ride and handling than the previous model. It's also...
