2019 Lexus ES Hybrid Review and Price
At the auto show in New York, there was a presentation of not only the gasoline versions of the Lexus ES E-Class sedan, but also its hybrid modification of the ES Hybrid 2019 model year. In terms of appearance, it almost completely copies standard modifications, but it has certain elements of individuality. They include the Lexus logo on the radiator grille and the rear, a spoiler on the trunk and a modified rear bumper.
The interior of the premium hybrid repeats the interior of gasoline cars in all respects – modern design, thoughtful ergonomics, high-quality finishing materials and a large stock of space for passengers and the first and second rows of seats. Due to the batteries behind the rear sofa, the volume of the Lexus ES’s boot compartment Hybrid 2019 stud is slightly smaller.
The driving force of the Lexus ES 300h is represented by a hybrid power plant. The sedan is equipped with a V6 engine of 3 liters capacity and 210 horsepower, functioning on the principle of Atkinson and developing 213 Nm. The traction is transmitted to the front wheels through a continuously variable CVT.
Of the other technical features of the Lexus ES 300h, it should be noted that it was built on the upgraded platform of the fifth generation model, which, in turn, is rooted in the Toyota Camry platform. It introduced so many changes that the connection with previous versions can be considered only nominal. And if we talk about equipping the car, so it is even an order of magnitude better and richer.
By default, the hybrid mid-sized business sedan is equipped with xenon headlights, ten airbags, a premium music system, three-zone climate control, a full electric package, front seats with electric drive, memory, heating and ventilation, heated rear sofa, leather interior trim and much more. The starting price for the ES 350 in the base configuration is 37.5 thousand dollars, and the ES 300h will be a little more expensive – 40.5 thousand.
