2018 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Lexus ES Series

Before finalizing a car purchase, there are various factors to consider. Design, technology, safety and performance are some of the aspects to consider for auto buyers in Milford Connecticut. When it comes to choosing between 2018 Lexus ES Series and 2018 Toyota Camry, the latter is a clear winner. This parametric comparison will tell you why.

Design & Style

Class and elegance are the only words to describe the exterior of 2018 Lexus ES Series and the 2018 Toyota Camry. However, one should never judge a book by its cover. Given the compactness of the vehicle, Lexus ES Series has done a fair job in providing a spacious sedan, but you can have a really difficult time getting in and out of the vehicle.

On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota Camry is a 4-door, 5-seater sedan with a spacious interior including standard rear legroom. The dramatic curves and shapes of the Camry are both functional and contemporary, with a flat glass panel seamlessly incorporating the newest generation multimedia system.

Technology & Safety

Every vehicle has a set of technology and safety features that set them apart from the rest. For 2018 Lexus ES series, we have some exceptional safety systems, although it lacks the technology offered by its rivals. The mouse-like controller in the infotainment system is one worrying aspect that can compromise your safety, as it can keep your eyes away from driving on the road.

The 2018 Toyota Camry, on the other hand, has great safety features, including the standard Secondary Collision Brake, which applies the brakes automatically in case of a crash. You don’t have a post collision braking system with the ES series, and there are chances of more collisions.


The two models are tough competitors, in terms of performance ability. The 2018 Lexus ES Series is turbocharged with a V6, 3.5-liter engine that produces up to 268 horsepower and 248lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Toyota Camry comes with a 4-cylinder, 2.5 liter engine, producing up to 203-horsepower. The car is quite fuel-efficient with a gas mileage of 39 mpg on the highways and 28 mpg in the city, which is far superior than the mileage offered by 2018 Lexus ES Series.

The Bottom Line

The above comparison is a clear indication of the fact that the 2018 Toyota Camry should be your choice any given day. Performance wise, the ES Series may come head to head with Camry, however, it still lacks some exceptional features found in this model. Undoubtedly, this is the next car you should consider buying, given the price value and specifications on offer.
