2019 Lexus ES: A redesign has brought more technology and more beauty to the mix.
July 27 2018,
The 2019 Lexus ES looks incredible. The ES 350 and ES 300h have vertical bars on the grille. The ES 350 F Sport has a blacked-out grille treatment. Wheels start at 17 inches and top out at 19 inches for the F Sport.
New driver tools include semi-autonomous driving and fourth generation hybrid technology
Under the ES 350 hood, a 3.5-litre engine generates 302 horsepower, a gain of 34 horsepower over last year’s model. Rising by 19 lb-ft, the new ES 350 generates 267 lb-ft of torque. Highway fuel economy is 7.7 L/100KM. The hybrid earns 5.3L/100 km in combined city/highway driving. Lexus reduced the size of the battery and has tucked it under the back seat.
The ES 350 and 400h have dynamic control shocks. These use adjustable dampers to smooth the ride, giving you a truly luxury experience. On the F Sport, Lexus replaces that system with an Adaptive Variable Suspension.
Drivers will benefit from Lexus Safety System-Plus. A comprehensive pre-collision system has an automatic braking system, a pedestrian watch, a forward collision warning, and new daytime bicyclist detection. Lexus has updated the Lane Departure Alert with a new Lane Trace Assist. This gives the driver some semi-autonomous driving assistance. It is matched with the Lexus Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. You can actually let the car drive itself under certain conditions.
More space and more features in the 2019 Lexus ES in Laval, Quebec
Lexus ES cabins have more high tech features to go with the handsome upgrades that Lexus has made. Ten-way power seats have power-heat and a ventilation fan. The Lexus Remote Controller is now augmented by Google Voice or Siri thanks to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. In the hybrid, Lexus discovered ways to utilise sound deadening materials in 96 per cent of the floor pan. In addition, the new build for the hybrid includes more cargo space. Now it has the same 473-litre trunk as the other editions.
