While the federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) has not released crash data on the 2019 Lexus ES, the private Insurance Institute for Highway Safety(IIHS) gave the vehicle its highest overall rating of "Good". It also gave the new Lexus ES the Top Safety Pick+ award for trims equipped with adaptive headlights.

These safety aids are optional on other vehicles in its class.
The ES350 has fuel economy ratings of 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. The F Sport fuel ratings dip slightly on the highway to 31 mpg highway primarily because of its bigger tires. The city ratings remain the same. The ratings for both trims are respectable for their class. The ES300h EPA ratings soar to 43 mpg city and 45 mpg highway. These numbers are highly impressive.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Lexus ES invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Lexus ES MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
