Lexus has announced the commercialization in Spain of the ES saloon, a model that until now had not been available in our market but, with this, goes by the seventh generation.
2019 Lexus ES measures 4,976 meters in length, which is greater than the GS (4,880 meters). An important difference between both is mechanical, since the GS is rear-wheel drive and the front ES. In the US, the starting price of the ES is slightly higher than that of the IS and much lower than that of the GS .
At the moment we do not know the range that will arrive in Spain. In other markets there will be two versions, one that only has one combustion engine (ES 350) and another hybrid (ES 300h). The first one has a 3.5-liter petrol V6 with a displacement of 306 horsepower, which is associated with an eight-speed automatic gear shift (with torque converter). The hybrid version has a gasoline engine of 2.5 liters, four cylinders and 181 horses, plus an electric motor of 143; The total power is 223 horses.

The ES 350 has a sporty finish called F SPORT, which has several aesthetic differences over the standard version: a rear spoiler, dark colored decorative elements on the lower part of the body and 19-inch wheels (those of the rest of models are 17 or 18) similar to those that the Lexus LC can carry. Inside there are aluminum moldings inspired “in the manufacture of a traditional Japanese sword” and presents “wave patterns that give it a three-dimensional appearance that varies according to the angle of vision”.
The F Sport also features a suspension of variable hardness and an additional “Sport ” driving mode. This acts on the response of the engine, the gearbox, the hardness of the suspension and, through the car\’s speakers, increases the sound sensation of the engine.
The instrumentation of the Lexus ES, which looks similar to the LC, can be complemented by an information system projected on the windshield. The most equipped versions have a screen in the center of the dashboard 12.3 inches in size with browser and internet access. The basic screen is 8 inches in size. It is the first Lexus that has Apple CarPlay.
Among the systems of assistance to driving that you have is theautomatic emergency braking , which as a novelty, has recognition of cyclists and has been improved to better detect pedestrians at night.
The Lexus ES is made on a modular platform called GA-K.
