New Lexus ES 250 open for booking, from RM300k

The new Lexus ES, which was previewed in Malaysia late last year at KLIMS 2018, is now open for booking. We’re getting the seventh-generation sedan in ES 250 form, priced at RM299,888 on-the-road without insurance for the Premium and RM332,888 for the Luxury trim level.

The new ES is an arresting sight in the metal, and it looks very much like a “baby LS”. While the exterior design is significantly more emotional and dynamic, Lexus says that it contains a more spacious (class-leading rear legroom) and refined cabin than its predecessor. That win-win is due to a wider and longer chassis – the Global Architecture – K (GA-K) is essentially Lexus’ version of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.

Power comes from the latest 2.5 litre Dynamic Force direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine, making 204 hp at 6,600 rpm and 243 Nm of torque from 4,000 to 5,000 rpm. It is paired to an eight-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission sending power to the front axle.

Lexus Safety System+ (LSS+), which made its recent debut in the 2019 Lexus NX 300, is standard across the board here as well. LSS+ includes Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Pre-Collision System (PCS) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) with Stop and Go function. The Luxury version adds on three bi-beam LED headlights with Adaptive High Beam System (AHS).

The top-spec car also comes with a 10-way powered front seat, powered reclining rear seats, three-zone climate control, head-up display, 12.3-inch centre screen and a panoramic view monitor. One can choose from seven exterior colours and two interior colour schemes.

The Lexus ES is a CBU import from Japan and buyers will enjoy a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
