Over the past few years Lexus has been referred to as a Japanese Buick, with the number one reason being the ES front-drive luxury sedan a car that drew direct comparisons with the not-quite-Cadillac GM premium brand. To erase those comparos the new 2013 ES gets a more stylish exterior with a GS-themed front nose and a profile more like the flagship LS.

Swapping its Camry underpinnings for an Avalon platform it has, however, grown even more in size a notable Buick trait. Plus, to challenge the eAssist mild-hybrid LaCrosse, there's finally now an ES300h hybrid system getting 39 mpg average.

And yet it still finds a way to look boring.

Ive allways though Toyota cars were boring. Minus the Supra and some celica's, even those are boarderline eh... Are far as purly stock body lines go. Then the new celica went cray and over did it. IMO.

I agree with you 100%. The only Toyota I like is the new 4Runner.

Yup, the Lexus GS-nose is butt-ugly. Even uglier than the current Acura "beak', aka "can-opener". Both look like something that putz stylist Chris Bangle would come up with.
