The all-new 2019 Lexus ES envelops you in striking style and unforgettable luxury and delights you with exhilarating performance. Equipped with the latest technologies, it’s the first Lexus to work with Apple CarPlayTM. Also featuring Enform Audio and Lexus Safety System+ 2.0, ES makes every journey its own reward. Available in both 4th generation Self-Charging ES 300 hybrid and ES 350 gas models – and, for the first time, F SPORT 1 & 2 packages on ES 350.
Artfully designed and exceptionally engineered on Lexus’ new Global Architecture K platform, the next generation ES is longer, lower and wider, with a dramatically slanted roof-line creating a coupe-like silhouette, with increased interior space and responsive driving dynamics. Out front, it features Bi-LED headlamps along with LED cornering lamps while the rear end is clean and sharply chiselled, with LED lamps that wrap around the quarter panels to generate a continuous styling line when viewed from any angle.
The 2019 ES350 offers several available option packages, including – for the first time – F SPORT Series 1 and F SPORT Series 2, set apart with exclusive F SPORT -branded equipment such as 19” alloy wheels, 3-spoke heated steering wheel and sport seating, along with aluminium interior trim, unique grille with satin black surround, and performance-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension with large sport brakes.
ES rewards at every turn and every touch. The driver-oriented cockpit features sculpted 10-way power adjustable front heated and ventilated front seats, while the instrument panel, centre display screen, and available heads-up display are positioned ideally in the driver’s field of vision. Nuluxe and available leather interiors in Black, Flaxen, or Chateau and Striated Black, or Linear Dark Mocha or Linear Espresso wood trim create the feeling of premium handcrafted comfort.
Available on both the ES 300 self-charging hybrid and the ES 350, the Ultra Luxury Package adds premium semi-aniline leather seating, a 10-inch head-up display, birds-eye view camera, and a 17-speaker Mark Levinson audio system with Clarif-Fi 2.0 and Quantum Sound Logic. Outside, it features noise reducing 18″ alloy wheels, and touch free power back door.
Yasuhiro Sakakibara, the chief engineer of the 2019 ES, said “We knew that this ES had to feel responsive and easy to drive, no matter what kind of road it was on”, so his team delivered an ES with greater performance, power, and handling than any before. The new direct-injection V6 engine is mated to an 8-speed Direct Shift transmission. It produces 302 horsepower and achieves rapid acceleration, with crisp, precisely timed shifts and quick pedal responses. Combined Fuel efficiency ratings are 9.1 L/100km for ES 350, 9.4 L/100km for ES 350 F SPORT and 5.3 L/100km for ES 300h.
Featuring a highly efficient 2.5L Atkinson cycle Gasoline Engine and Electric Motor, the ES 300h produces 215 Net HP. With its new Hybrid control computer, ES hybrid creates a smooth, responsive and engaging driving experience and exceptional fuel efficiency ratings of 5.5 L/100km City* and 5.2 L/100km Highway*, plus extremely low emissions. Like all Lexus Hybrids, the self-charging system never needs to be plugged in and the high voltage Nickel Metal Hydride battery and Hybrid Components are covered by a 96 months/160,000 km warranty.
Every 2019 Lexus ES is equipped with EnformTM Audio 2.0, which delivers thoughtful connectivity and peace of mind technology, in one simple to use package. Enform App Suite 2.0 puts your favorite apps at your fingertips, and lets you bring your music along for the ride.
Scout GPS link cellular-based navigation helps you find your way, while packages with embedded navigation also include Destination Assist, for a connection to a live agent who can send directions to your display screen. And Enform Safety Connect provides emergency assistance in the case of a Collision, Roadside Emergency, or Stolen Vehicle with just a press of the SOS button.
Just plug a compatible iPhone into the USB data port, and CarPlay-enabled apps appear on the touch screen. Then navigate and control apps using Lexus Remote Touch, steering wheel controls, or with Siri — all while staying focused on the road ahead.
Experience true purity of sound with the available 17-speaker Mark Levinson® Premium Surround Sound Audio System on ES350 and ES300h Ultra Luxury packages. Designed exclusively for Lexus ES, every component has been placed for the most accurate sound reproduction possible. All speakers incorporate Lexus’ GreenEdge™ technology that doubles the output of the amplifier, while reducing energy consumption by half.
ES features both a multi-information display and digital speedometer that puts key driver data within easy eye line, and a standard 8” or available 12.3” display screen that lets you customize controls including audio and navigation to your personal preferences, using the Lexus Remote Touch system. An available 10-inch head-up display puts key information on the windshield so that you can keep your eyes on the road.
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) adds another level of safety and peace of mind, helping you to maintain better control on slippery surfaces. When sensors detect front or rear wheels lose traction, VSC automatically manages steering, brakes and stability systems to correct over- or under-steering and keep you on your intended path.
ES makes every journey safer and more relaxing with available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). BSM alerts you to the presence of vehicles in adjacent lanes that may have escaped visibility in your side-view mirrors. While RCTA warns you about hazards you can’t see while backing up. The system also works with Clearance Sonar to help drivers detect and avoid obstacles while maneuvering at low speeds.
The Rearview Camera in combination with Intuitive Park Assist take the guesswork out of parking — providing a clear image and clear guidelines to assist you when parallel parking, or backing into a parking space.
