Default Top 10 Cars of the 2012 NY Auto Show


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.

Anyone who passes up a Buick Lacrosse for the Lexus ES (current or upcoming) is brain dead. The only benefit over the Lacrosse is a few mpg... for a starting price $8,000 higher.

Anyone who buys a LaCrosse over the new Impala is brain dead.

The Impala won't have available AWD (hi-per strut FWD hasn't been announced yet either) or be as luxurious unless you hike the price into Lacrosse territory. The Impala is damn good looking though.

I love the way the exterior looks on the new Impala but the inside hmm something just looks off about it.
