Design

Coupe-Like Exterior

Artfully designed and exceptionally engineered on Lexus’ Global Architecture K Platform, ES is set off by a long, wide stance, while the dramatically slanted roof-line creates a coupe-like silhouette. All of which adds up to more interior room, and more responsive driving dynamics. Out front, most packages feature Triple Beam LED headlamps, along with LED cornering lamps. 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.

F SPORT  Packages

Add to your exhilaration with one of two F SPORT  Series packages. F SPORT  Series 1, available exclusively on ES 250 AWD, features exclusive F SPORT -branded equipment such as 19” alloy wheels, 3-spoke sport steering wheel and sport seating, along with aluminium interior trim, and unique grille with satin black surround. F SPORT  Series 2, available exclusively on ES 350 FWD, features all of that, then adds a 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system, Lexus Navigation with Remote, and performance-tuned Adaptive Variable Suspension.

Modern & Spacious Interior

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.

  • Premium Semi-Aniline Leather
  • Mark Levinson Audio SystemTM
  • Power Open/Close Truck with Kick Sensor

Black Line
Edition

Available only on ES 350, the new Black Line Edition takes the F SPORT  2 package in a dramatic new direction. Featuring black 19” aluminum alloy F SPORT  wheels, black mirrors, and black rear spoiler, juxtaposed to an exclusive interior colour combination, the Black Line Edition is as exhilarating to look at as it is to drive.

Performance

Enhanced Gas Powertrain

ES’ powerful and profoundly responsive drive starts with its direct-injection V6, mated to an 8-speed direct shift transmission. Generating 302 horsepower, it combines rapid acceleration with precisely timed shifts. 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.

Dynamic Torque
All-Wheel-Drive (AWD)

ES 250 AWD includes the advanced intelligence of Lexus’ Dynamic Torque All-Wheel-Drive system. With the ability to send 100 percent of torque to the front wheels, or split it 50:50 between front and rear, ES AWD is ideal for life in Canada. AWD ensures that you’ll enjoy exceptional control and stability when accelerating and cornering, and when the weather and road conditions are less than perfect. And better fuel economy when only front wheel drive is required. It all happens seamlessly, and automatically, so you can spend more time enjoying every moment of the drive, no matter what comes your way.

Drive Mode Select

Choose a mode to suit the moment — from optimum efficiency to maximum exhilaration. The instrument cluster changes colour to reflect your mood, illuminating in blue for ECO mode (and EV mode on Lexus ES 300h) and in red when you dial up the excitement with Sport mode or Sport + on F SPORT  packages.

Enhanced Ride Comfort

ES and ESh are built upon the newly designed and exceptionally rigid Lexus Global Architecture - K (GA-K) front-wheel drive chassis. It is longer, lower, and wider than before, delivering an eye-catching appearance and reflecting its newfound performance capabilities. Combined with a multi-link rear suspension design, or available Adaptive Variable Suspension on F SPORT  2 package only, rack-mounted electric power steering and a V-brace mounted behind the rear seat, the ES helps to provide you with a complete sense of control.

Vehicle Stability Control8

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.

Blind Spot Monitor19 with Rear Cross Traffic Alert32

Standard on ES 350 AWD and ES 300h, and available on ES 250 AWD, the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps to make every journey safer and more relaxing. 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.

Backup Camera2 with intuitive Park Assist

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.
