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.

I still think this is a terrible idea. one "minor" fender bender and you're stuck doing a mountain of paperwork to get a repair done to get it to fly again.

The front end of the Impala's look pretty sick. Not sure how I feel about the derriere though...

I'm excited to see when they're gonna offer an SS version.

Exactly what I thought. That bump out over the rear wheel opening is odd.

I am excited about the new Altima. Looks kinda like a VW and an Infiniti.

What happened to them? Their designs have been terrible lately. The TL was great then they butchered it. Then the TSX was great and they butchered that. Same thing with the MDX. That front grille design is killing them.

The front looks like it has some of the Camaro in it.

I see that the Infiniti LE concept guys were in the same room with the Altima guys :)

Looks very similar. The altima looks better and more like an Infiniti in my opinion though.

Agreed on all points. Acura has taken a huge dive with their latest face lift. I was a huge fan of the last gen TL's (minus the whole FWD fiasco) and the TSX's were actually really nice cars. Drove pretty solid. Then they had to go and eff everything up.

Nissan has done great things with their looks...now i'm just waiting for something RWD and boosted to come from the factory :)

I like the old boxier TSX. That was just a solid looking car. Put their V6 in that and make it rwd please :)
