DAVID DEWHURST

"The IS300 lets us do this car." That's Denny Clements talking. He's group vice-president and general manager at Lexus, making him "the top dude." And with that single sentence he explains what the deal is with this new ES300. The IS300, for you amnesia sufferers, is Lexus's first shot at a Bimmer beater. It's a shoebox four-door with an in-line six up front and enough red-hot corpuscles to earn its way onto the short list of Sports Sedans You Gotta Try.

So, with the IS playing deep in the Sports Dept., Lexus is assigning the ES full time to the luxury beat. As BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Volvo try to cover both bases with their entry-level sedans, Lexus pours on the cream sauce here, with cues taken directly from the top-class LS430. You can choose the same interior leather, for example, and a similar wood-and-leather-rimmed steering wheel.

At $31,000, plus or minus a few bones, depending on your restraint with the options, splendor seekers will find a lot of Lexus for less. As before, this new ES300 is a Camry with frosting — derived from the new Camry, of course. It comes as a four-door front-driver only, powered by an evolutionary version of Toyota's 3.0-liter, 24-valve V-6. Also new and exclusive to Lexus is a five-speed automatic and even more intelligence in the engine's variable valve timing. All ES300s will meet California's ULEV emissions requirement.

The trend in four-doors is longer and taller. The ES is right in step, a sliver longer than the last car at 191.1 inches overall, and significantly taller — up 2.4 inches to 57.3. The wheelbase is significantly longer, too, by 2.0 inches to 107.1. The payoff shows inside, with more head room, more shoulder room, and a lot more hip room, over two inches more both front and back. Trunk space grows to 15 cubic feet from 13. By contrast, the same-price competitors from Europe look to be on starvation diets.

The Benz C-class is more than a foot shorter, and the BMW 3-series is two inches shorter than that. In fact, the ES300 is bigger on the outside and roomier inside than the next-rung-up E-class and 5-series models from those two makers, which cost far more (actually, it's bigger than the step-up GS in the Lexus line, too). For buyers seeking passenger-pampering accommodations for five, the ES has all the cards. Safety equipment includes two-stage frontal airbags, pretensioning belts and side-impact bags for front passengers, and inflatable curtains all along the side windows. A lower-energy third stage may be triggered on the driver's front bag when the seat is adjusted close to the wheel. Once on the road, we quickly confirmed what Clements meant when he said the IS let Lexus do this car. With the drivers already served, the ES can cater to the carriage class.

Acceleration is relaxed. Lexus says 0-to-60 mph quickens to 8.1 seconds from the previous 8.3, thanks to more advantageous gearing in the five-speed, and more area under the torque curve from both smarter valve timing and three-stage ram tuning of the intake runners. The engine's power and torque ratings are unchanged, however. Fuel economy notches up to 20 in the city, 29 on the highway (as opposed to 19 and 26 before), impressive for a car that also gained about 70 pounds.

The suspension emphasizes a plush ride. And it succeeds completely. Or you can choose an "adaptive" option that lets you mess things up. A four-position selector on the console lets you tell a computer to tell the shocks how absorbent they should be. We clicked to an absurdly flinty ride on a relatively smooth road, and to deep knee bends over an undulating section. The unoptioned car, on the other hand, always seemed to know best. The adaptive computer also has influence over the variable-effort steering, a very agreeable firming of response in one of the preproduction samples we drove. Still, the software was in the tinker stage, we were told. Let's just say we're hopeful, and change the subject to interiors. Lexus sets the standard here.

The formula, dating back to the first LS400, puts medium-dark frosting over a light cake, so to speak. Up where the sunlight strikes, the window sills and the dash top are trimmed in a low-gloss, glare-absorbing hue. Horizontal wood accents border the flood of brightness that reflects off the lighter hue below. Everything down there is color matched — door panels, seats, lower dash, console, and carpet. And the light reveals every tailoring touch. Talk about pucker control! Every tuck, roll, and wrinkle casts just the right shadow.

The eye finds so many treats. Elastic pockets in the backs of the front seats are common, but the ES hides its expanders behind a hard panel that's gently curved and covered to match seat leather. Instead of random wrinkles, rear passengers see taut sculpturing. They, and the front passengers, also see broad expanses of wood, said to be California walnut, oddly embalmed in a cranraspberry stain. Very distinctive. Daringly peculiar. "We're making our statement here," said Clements, not completely hiding his reservations. He's not losing any sleep, though. The ES sales target is 50,000 per year, up just 10,000 from the old model's pace. And all luxury, all the time is exactly what Lexus shoppers expect.

2002 Lexus ES300 Road Test

Redefining the definition of rolling isolation

Lexus ES300 Full Overview

A smooth ride, supreme quiet, and tastefully executed, if conservative, exterior design. That's what the Lexus ES 300 has traditionally been about. Around in its current configuration since '97, it was due for a redesign, though it remained a strong seller. Lexus' challenge, then, was to increase the car's lux quotient and crank up its style factor, while not straying too far from the formula that made it so popular in the entry-level luxury market to begin with.

Well, the '02 ES 300 is still about setting comfort and quietness standards. In fact, based on our road and test-track evaluation, this updated version has moved them even higher. And the bold exterior packs visual pop that clearly says Lexus is now willing to take some design risks it's carefully avoided in the past.

The ES 300's fresh exterior is pretty daring for a car aimed at what's supposed to be a traditional luxury-car buyer. The super-size headlamps, not unlike those on its distant cousin, the Toyota Celica, particularly gave us pause: They give the car's face a certain edge, for sure, but some consider the treatment a bit overdone. The rest of the shape is flowing and reasonably well proportioned. Overall, the car's look is a nice mix of the squarer, more upright lines from the Toyota Avalon, mixed with the GS 300/400 side glass and the slightly odd, sporty noses of the MR2, and even the Prius hybrid. Staid it absolutely is not.

This more dramatic-looking ES has a longer wheelbase (107.5 versus 105.1 in.) and is taller than the previous car. The roofline goes from 54.9 in. high to 57.3; the result is greater interior space with 96.4 cu ft of volume versus the 89.0 in the competitive Mercedes C-Class sedan.

The only engine available is a 3.0L DOHC V-6 with variable valve timing that pours out a silken 210 hp and 220 lb-ft of torque. It's much the same as the previous ES powerplant, but with two important changes. First, the engine has a new drive-by-wire throttle that lets its management system serve up both noticeably sharper response and lower emissions-a combo nobody will gripe about. Second, this excellent, all-aluminum powerplant is now teamed with a five-speed automatic transmission. Lexus says the new tranny shifts more smoothly; however, we noticed that shifts in our test-drive prototypes had an occasional uncharacteristic edge. On the upside, the five-speed's closer gearing provides new scoot that the old four-speed couldn't. And there's definitely less up- and downshifting on rolling terrain.

At the track, the ES is no rocket, but it's not supposed to be either. Its performance is about dead center of the midsize sedan pack. But with a 0-60 time of 8.15 sec, you'd still be able to easily get out ahead of most of the sport/utility-driving commuters at a stoplight. Even with the hardware updates, the car's horsepower and torque numbers don't change. But maybe they should: Both the '02 Infiniti I35 and Acura TL Type S will be packing 260 horses. Still, the ES delivers wholly adequate, ultra-smooth performance that's appropriate to its mission as a luxo cruiser, not a racer.

The ES' unibody is close to flawless when it comes to the structural solidity and quietness that contribute largely to its, or any car's, comfort level. Rubber-isolated subframes in the front and rear convincingly separate the cabin from the powertrain and suspension vibrations. And that makes for creamy driving behavior that truly rivals that of top prestige sedans. This car is a lesson to all who say you can't get first-rate rolling quiet with MacPherson struts in both front and back. With a flick of the switch, the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension actually offers an even higher level of sensory deprivation by varying the shock damping rates based on surface conditions, vehicle speed, driver steering and brake inputs, and body movement. Our tester turned in a VSC-monitored slalom speed of 60.6 mph, which is plenty good given this sedan's heavy ride-comfort bias and nondefeatable stability system.

Another nice driving surprise is the excellent boost rate and precision of the power rack-and-pinion steering. Generally, steering systems suffer serious compromises in pleasant-riding sedans. But not here. The brake pedal is also nicely linear in response and calls on larger front discs this year with dual-piston calipers. The standard four-wheel discs yielded a stop in 123 ft from 60 mph. That compares with the 131 posted by a Buick Lesabre, 128 by a Cadillac Catera, and 114 by a Mercedes C320.

The ES 300's interior styling is perfectly gorgeous, and its execution nearly flawless. The California walnut trim on the wheel, dash, console, and doors looks miles deep and is smooth as glass. Accenting it, and the rich leather upholstery, are tasteful bright points of chrome on the dash and door handles. An optional power rear sunshade helps keep things cool. Other goodies include optional navigation and Mark Levinson premium audio, dual-zone climate control, and two-level heated seats. We do, however, have some minor quibbles with the needless complexity of the electronic controls and screen shared by the HVAC, navigation, and sound. The trunk is adequately sized, nicely finished, and packs a full-size spare on an alloy rim.

The '02 ES 300 is a slick piece. Its velvety mechanical refinement and ride are unmatched in the $30,000-plus price range. It offers the luxury accoutrements and feature levels buyers have come to appreciate and expect in the mid-level lux category. Although the target customers may need some time to get used to the avant garde front-end created in the company's Japanese design studios, the new ES 300 is definitely an entry-lux knockout.
