In case you’re a fleet manager or a budding chauffeur you might want to sit up and take notice, because the new 2019 Lexus ES has been launched in the UAE with prices starting from AED195,000 ($53,000).
Even though it’s destined for Uber X and hotel services around the country, Lexus is at least trying to attract more regular customers with the introduction of the new ES 350 F Sport complete with 19-inch wheels and dual exhaust pipes.
The seventh generation ES makes brazen use of Lexus’ family grille and complements the overall chiseled look with slim headlights and LED taillamps. The changes inside include at the introduction of a 12.3-inch touchscreen and 10.2-inch head-up display, plus luxuries such as a three-zone air conditioning, a 17-speaker audio system, and power reclining rear sears which your ride passengers will certainly appreciate.
The 2019 Lexus ES line-up includes four models, starting with the ES 250 riding on standard 17-inch wheels, and going up to the ES 350, ES 350 F Sport, as well as an ES 300h. The latter pairs a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with a hybrid system, while the ES 350 versions comes with a 3.5-litre V6 meted to an eight-speed automatic transmission and putting 301 horsepower to the front wheels.
In terms of safety kit, you’ll find the 2019 ES comes pretty loaded, featuring radar cruise control, lane departure warning, 10 airbags, and plenty of assists and alerts to keep beeping away in a parking lot.
