Lexus ES (2018–)

Last updated 29 May 2019

Replaced the GS and comes exclusively with 300h hybrid powertrain so no Noxious diesel emissions. Starts at £38,800 but needs to keep under £40k to avoid £450pa luxury car tax.
Front-drive 2.5 litre self-charging hybrid with epicyclic CVT only. Puts old-fashioned luxury and comfort ahead of sporty handling. First 1,000 in UK sold out quickly. Toyota Camry hybrid rides and handles better.

Introduction

Seventh generation Lexus ES is forging a new, more ambitious path. Long renowned for its comfort, refinement and luxury appointments, the new ES builds on its strengths with an all-new chassis that allows for a more dynamic exterior design and even better driving performance.

More spacious, quieter and safer than ever before, more dramatic styling replaces bland styling of previous generation ES. Sharpened performance, "class-leading safety technology and a level of craftsmanship rarely found in this market segment."

First Lexus ES to be sold in the UK and Western Europe. Follows the new LS flagship saloon and LC coupe in carrying forward dramatic Lexus spindle grille styling. Built on all-new Global Architecture-K (GA-K) platform giving a more engaging driving experience and higher safety provisions. Available from January 2019, the UK range features the ES 300h, powered by a new self-charging hybrid system. ES 200, ES 250 and ES 350 petrol engine models available in certain other European markets from September 2018.
