Extremely under powered

Brought my older es350 in for service and got a 2021 es250 as a loaner. I was thinking on trading my es350 for newer model since in am nearing 150k miles but after driving the new es250 I will be keeping my old one. Biggest first impression is the vehicle is extremely under powered and takes excessive throttle input to get it to move. 4 cylinder engine is loud and feels like I am driving a Toyota Corolla. Interior feels cheap and not like previous models and has one of if not the worst stereo I have ever heard in a car. Very cheap...I feel like Lexus really missed the mark and I can’t see them selling many of these cars. I predict they will drop this model after a couple years as I can’t see who would buy this. If you like this car you should buy a Camry as they are probably similar except Camry has better stereo

Other poster talked about cheap interior and bad stereo. Luxury version has leather seats. Mark Levinson upgrade provides great stereo. Features are as good or better than what you find on higher priced cars. ES250 isn't powerful but I got 37 mpg on a long trip. I would like to see better ambient lighting.
