While displacement-based vehicle nomenclature is increasingly nonsensical—a BMW M340i doesn’t have a 4.0-liter engine, for example—Lexus keeps it literal with its new ES250 AWD model. As in the all-wheel-drive Toyota Camry and Avalon, the ES250 gains the additional traction of four driven wheels and is powered solely by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 203 horses.

The ES250 returns after a 29-year hiatus and, for the first time, with a four-cylinder.

Losing two cylinders balloons the ES’s 60-mph time from 6.0 seconds to 8.1 seconds.

An as-tested price of $53,500 makes the ES250 more than twice as expensive as a Camry LE.

The ES250 is the same size (really, much the same car) as the Toyota Avalon.

5 of 42

The 2.5-liter four makes 203 horsepower and is less refined than the V-6 in the ES350.

6 of 42

Prices for the ES250 AWD start at $41,025. That’s the same price as a base, front-drive ES350.

The ES250 interior is one of the more comfortable cabins in the business.

EPA fuel economy is three miles per gallon better than the ES350 F-Sport—25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.

9 of 42

Back in 1990, the ES250 V-6 made only 156 horsepower. So, progress.

The F-Sport package seems out of place on an ES but brought handsome wheels, anyway.
