Toyota Corolla 2005 Vs Lexus ES300 by PGON(m): 8:21pm On Nov 08, 2015
I have seen the interior of both cars. Oh! I love the Lexus but i don't know anything about the fuel consumption rate and maintenance cost.
Someone told me that ES300 uses Toyota sienna Engine while ES350 uses same engine with Toyota Highlander.

I intend to use the car on daily basis:
Work: 15minutes drive X2.
Travels: 7hrs drive (maybe 6-10times per/yr)
Intra-state Visits: 45mins - 1:30hr drive (maybe 10-15times per/yr)

Which of these cars can best serve the purpose.

Please i need information on the fuel consumption and maintenance.

Example will be perfect

This is a tangerine vs apple comparison



Both cars will serve the purpose but with different levels of expenditure.

The corolla uses less fuel since it has a smaller engine and maintenance cost is less

The lexus isn't supposed to be compared with the corolla since its a luxury car(you didn't even say IS lexus rather you pitched it against lexus ES). Well, Maintenance and fueling is far higher than the corolla

Perhaps you'd have better luck comparing cars in the same category. The Lexus ES series are luxury sedans. Pretty much all of them sport the 3L V6 Twin Cam, Premium in-car entertainment (think Mark Levinson), Stock Leather and Mahogany Trims, rear AC vents, if I'm not mistaken. The Corolla is, for all intents and purposes, an economy, entry level sedan. I4, 1.8/2.2/2.4L.

I have seen that the corolla is cheap to maintain but less powerful.

If the ES is not problematic, what could make the maintenance more costly.

If Corolla can take 10litres
it is likely that ES will take ............(Help fill the blank)



This will help me understand the rate of fuel consumption.

How can you compare a I4 1.6L and 1.8L to a 3.0L V6. The ES300 is a luxurious camry meaning it will beat a camry hands down of same year. Go to this site and pick your car, that way you will have an idea of the fuel economy of your choice http://www.milespergallon.info/

Since when did asking for information between two choices become a comparison. OP asked for details as to fuel consumption and maintenance for each vehicle and then it becomes a case of comparison? The details in question are up there. @OP, toyota corolla is fuel economical and easy to maintain. Engine capacity can be 1.6/1.8/2.0 (even I doubt if there's 2.0). It is also compact with small cabin space whereas a lexus (usually a V6) is thirsty. Engine capacity can be 3.0/3.3 (ES 300/ ES 330). Lexus is more luxurious, spacious, heavier on ground, stable on high speed. With ur itinerary, I'll go for d Lexus. Mind you, the lexus may consume more fuel than d corolla which to me is a small price 2pay for quality. A corolla is base, nothing u do can make it more special/luxurious but a lexus is made that way from scratch. I hope that satisfies u.

Finally i have found out that Lexus consumes more fuel not because it is a total failure.
The fuel consumption is because of the big engine( which is a good thing).
From the previous posts and links within the post.
My Summary

:Car : Engine Capacity: e.g Miles: Estimated cost for the miles :
:Toyota Corolla: :1.8L 4 cylinder: :15,000 : :$1,102:

:Lexus ES300: :3.0 6 cylinder: :15,000: : $1,553:


Difference in cost(Mileage) : $451

OP, if u are not that bouyant why not go for corolla thats less expensive to maintain? Afterall, it can serve all listed purposes and has good second hand value. The lexus are a status/luxury range of cars and their parts are relatively more expensive than corolla's.

Summary: since u are buying for efficiency and not status go for a corolla.

Without knowing details about cars.... anyone that has seen a Toyota Corolla and. Lexus Es 300 wouldn't be asking this kind questions.

it is not a luxurious “camry”. It has nothing to do with the camry apart from chasis. The es300 will also beat an avalon of same year hands down. It’s not a “camry” affair
