Lexus has finally launched its all-new Lexus ES sedan in Malaysia during a stylish event that was befitting of the premium luxury brand.
Refreshed and updated, the new ES boasts a number of innovative tweaks on its design that improve both the comfort and safety of the vehicle.
As Lexus’ most popular sedan with over 2.3 million global sales in the last 30 years, it comes to no surprise that Lexus has poured a lot of time and resource into developing the new model.
Now, the new 7th generation model exudes an attitude that can be best described as ‘smart sportiness’ thanks to a rearward sloping roofline that cuts a coupe-like silhouette.
Indeed, this departure from its traditional appearance with an all-new chassis that not only gives it a more sporty appearance but it also improves the car’s aerodynamics and offers a better driving experience.
Speaking of the driver, the new ES’ interior feature a driver-centric cockpit that has a more open and spacious layout. Attention to detail has been given to the quality and finish of the cabin. Inside you will find a vibrant 12.3 widescreen display that allows the driver to access numerous vehicle features such as the audio and climate systems.
The Lexus ES’s Panoramic View Monitor offers a hand to drivers manoeuvre tight spaces, ensuring that their vehicle emerges unscathed when navigating in or out of a tricky parking spot.
Apart from the driver, passengers in the rear of the vehicle have ample legroom for three occupants to travel in comfort. Adding to that, the power reclining rear seats, a truly unique feature to this class of vehicle, offers such a relaxing ride so much so they may find it difficult leaving the comforts of the ES upon reaching the destination.
Much like the previously launched NX300, the latest generation ES comes with the latest Lexus Safety System + (LSS+), which boast an advanced collection of safety technologies that make it one of the safest executive saloons in its class. This includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go Function, Lane Tracing Assist and a Pre-collision System.
Nestled under the hood, the new ES 250 has a newly developed 2.5-litre in-line 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 204 horsepower at 6,600rpm. In addition, it is equipped with a VVT-iE (Variable Valve Timing – Intelligent by Electric Motor) and paired with new 8-speed Direct Shift that provides power to the front wheels.
The new ES comes in two variants and when it comes down to pricing the 250 Premium and ES250 Luxury start from MYR299,888 and MYR332,888 respectively, both prices reflect on-the-road without insurance. The all-new Lexus ES also comes with a comprehensive warranty of five (5) years with unlimited mileage, giving you peace of mind.
