New Lexus ES Goes on Sale in Japan
Lexus today announced the start of 2019 Lexus ES sales at all its dealerships across Japan.
The ES was introduced in 1989 as part of Lexus’ debut vehicle lineup alongside the brand’s flagship model, the LS. Armed with unparalleled ride quality, quietness, and a spacious cabin, the ES helped establish the Lexus brand across the world, serving as the brand’s core product in many countries and regions. Now, it is available in Japan for the very first time.
As it enters its seventh-generation, the Lexus ES further enhances its world-renown ride comfort and driving dynamics all at the same time. Blending key elements of design and performance, the new ES will challenge the traditional expectations of consumers.
Following in the path of the LC and LS flagship coupe and sedan, the ES is the latest expression of the new generation of Lexus vehicles, instituting a fresh era of design and performance.
Built on the GA-K platform, which demonstrates high torsional rigidity and a low center of gravity, the all-new ES features a sleek and bold exterior, a spacious, plush interior, and exciting driving performance, all longstanding Lexus trademarks. The new platform/powertrain combination delivers flawless silky, smooth ride comfort, inheriting and further enhancing the DNA of past ES models. With sharp handling response and rock-solid stability, the ES exemplifies the Lexus”Yet” philosophy―the successful pairing of two contradictory ideas―with its “smooth, silky ride yet sharp handling.”
The ES comes equipped with the world’s first production Digital Side-View Monitors, as well as the brand’s innovative active safety package Lexus Safety System+. Utilizing the very latest in automotive safety technology offer drivers greater peace of mind and emphasizes the brand’s strong commitment to safety.
The all-new ES will be priced from ¥ 5,800,000 to ¥ 6,980,000 (tax included).Lexus today announced the start of 2019 Lexus ES sales at all its dealerships across Japan.
