The Lexus ES is a premium luxury sedan that now competes in the executive luxury sedan segment in India. Based on the Toyota Avalon, which is based on the Toyota K Platform that spawns off the Camry, the Lexus ES is the entry-level Lexus offered in the Indian car market.
The design is typically Lexus with the spindle-shaped front grille dominating the edgy fascia. The profile is similar to the Camry with the long hood, an even longer cabin and a sloping roofline that blends into the boot lid. It gets multi-spoke alloys standard along with LED DRLs and front fog lamps.
The interiors are classy and wrapped in leather. The dashboard design is quite busy with the changing contours, surfaces and colours. The display screen nested under the dash louvres and can be operated using the steering mounted audio controls as well. It gets individual zone climate control, electric sunroof, auto-dimming electric mirrors et al.
The safety aspect is taken care off by the electronic stability program that makes sure the car always remains in control using traction control, skid control, ABS and EBD. You also have six airbags standard on the Lexus ES in case of a mishap.
The Lexus ES gets a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that together make 200bhp. The engine is very similar to the Toyota Camry and being a hybrid, the emphasis is more on efficiency rather than outright performance and the ES returns a claimed 17kmpl which is quite impressive for a car in this class.
The Lexus ES is available only in the ES 300h trim and competes with the likes of the Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, the Volvo S90 and the Jaguar XF.
