Lexus is known for being a luxury brand that puts safety above all else. The cars they make are safe for the most precious cargo, and they look great as well. What more could you ask for?
Lexus ES History
Before we get into the details of the 2019 model, let’s look back at some of the histories of the Lexus ES.
The ES has been offered since 1989 when Toyota unveiled the Lexus name as a luxurious version of their sedans.
Initially, the ES was crafted on the same frame as the Toyota Camry, being economically friendly as far as production is concerned. Though the Camry was popular during that time, the ES struggled at first.
The ES wasn’t sought after then the way it is now, simply because it was so similar to the Camry. But don’t let that deter you!
As the brand grew, so did the interest in the ES models. The Lexus ES reliability was unmatched, and the comforts and safety the car offered was something to be proud of. The consumers were blown away by the features offered on a sedan with an affordable price point.
Since 2012, the company has offered Hybrid models of the ES, which makes the consumers feel better about their contributions to the well-being of the environment. The Hybrid model doesn’t compromise any of the other Lexus standard features, and the price point is incredibly affordable for everything included.
Whether you’re interested in the V6 option, or the Hybrid, the Lexus ES is perfect for you.
2019 Lexus ES
The all-new 2019 Lexus ES is somewhat of a trailblazer.
It has been redesigned this year, starting the 7th generation of the model. The body lines are sharp in comparison to the sleek look of previous years. They are unseen to this brand and the change has been widely welcomed.
The interior has been modernized as well. Sharp edges and light contrasts, with more driver-oriented controls, makes the 2019 model a great refreshed option. The car itself has been lengthened by three inches and widened by one, overall giving the car more room for a more comfortable drive.
2018 vs. 2019
The best way to showcase how big the improvements are on the 2019 version is to compare it with the 2018 model. Both are fantastic vehicles, but the 2019 ES has improved in many areas.
Miles Per Gallon
- In 2018, the V6 ES was getting 21 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway and 24 mpg with city and highway driving combined
- 2019 ES models offer 22 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined
This is a little improvement with great outcomes for the consumer. But this is only a comparison of the V6 engine option. What about the hybrid engine?
- 2018 offered 39 mpg in the city, 40 mpg on the highway, and 40 mpg combined
- Now to blow your mind! The 2019 Hybrid has a staggering 43 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway, and a combined 44 mpg. This is incredible!
Clearly, Lexus is making the correct decisions when it comes to fuel efficiency. These numbers are outstanding, and a huge bonus to the safety and luxury feel of the car.
The 2019 Lexus ES offers a variety of new technology for the first time this year. The first thing many have noticed is the giant 12.3-inch display screen on the dash. This baby is more than 4 inches larger than the 2018’s version.
Amazon Alexa is now offered in the vehicle, providing a special Lexus skill that allows for remote starting, locking/unlocking, checking fuel level, etc. all from the comfort of remotely using a smart device. This is a handy feature, one that Lexus is pioneering.
