Beautiful Balance: The 2019 Lexus ES 350 F Sport Marries Elegance and Sportiness

I had an extremely busy week during the seven days I tested the 2019 Lexus ES 350 F Sport. I’m talking one of those every day there’s some of the schedule weeks.

From driving to Silver Spring, Maryland in the rain to catch up with one of my professional wrestling buddies, to a mad dash to Baltimore to host a book signing for a model, to several voyages into Downtown D.C. for lunch meetings and evening events.

I put some city and highway miles on this 2019 Lexus ES 350 F Sport and it was quite the vehicle to do them all in.

This is one comfortable vehicle. It’s the perfect fusion of elegance and athleticism and combination of luxury and sportiness.

The well-executed interior cabin has comfortable seats that can be adjusted to your precise needs. The materials in the interior cabin are high-quality and are thoughtfully and impeccably designed.

The drive is smooth and assertive, with a relaxed aggression that gives you the punch of a sports car while maintaining the sophistication of an elegant sedan.

This car hugs the road and is a spirited drive boosted by the sport-tuned suspension system and more masculine race car design elements. This car is reliable on the road with the perfect balance of performance, precision and power.

There’s an extra long entertainment and navigation console and the tech offerings are plentiful, but one of the downsides to newer Lexus models is the touchpad controller. It’s annoying, doesn’t always respond appropriately to your touch and stubbornly finicky. I don’t find doing much of anything easy on it would prefer any other alternative. But that’s one of the vehicles few downsides.

The exterior design of this car is aerodynamic and sporty. This is an attractive car by all means. And the tone is set for how handsome this vehicle is by the front grill – it’s one of my favorites.

The cargo in this vehicle is spacious. Lots of back row leg room even with the front seats fully reclined, and the trunk has lots of space for bags, luggage or whatever you want to haul around.

The 2019 model of this Lexus has updated safe features.

For gas mileage, you’ll get 22 city miles per gallon and land 33 miles per gallon on the highway. Seven days of primarily city driving and I only filled the tank up once.


Favorite Features: Front grill and Red on Black seat color/design

Least Favorite Feature: Touchpad controller

Spin Control: The sticker price on my model of this vehicle was $52,993 and I feel it was worth it. But you can get this model starting at $44,285.

Status: A- LIST
