4 Surprising New Features Of The 2019 Lexus ES

The 2019 Lexus ES 350 and ES 300h will soon be available at dealerships all across America. These vehicles have already been receiving rave reviews from major automotive publications, and many folks interested in a luxury vehicle are waiting until they can get into a 2019 Lexus ES.

If you’re interested in one of these luxury vehicles, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few things that may surprise you about the all-new 2019 Lexus ES models. Let’s get into it! 

  1. 44 MPG For Lower Costs Of Ownership

In the past, the owners of luxury cars often had to pay quite a bit of money on fuel, because most luxury cars used large and inefficient V6 and V8 engines.

But the all-new Lexus ES 300h uses a hybrid powertrain that’s built to offer exceptional speed and torque – while only sipping gas. The electric motor delivers on-demand power to the wheels, and the 215 horsepower I4, 2.5L displacement engine has a 14:1 compression ratio, delivering exceptional performance while only sipping fuel.

The Lexus ES 300h will get a 43 mpg city, 45 mpg highway, and 44 combined fuel efficiency rating from the EPA – and in real life, you may get even higher fuel efficiency numbers.

This adds up to a lower cost of ownership, and less money coming out of your pocket for gas.

  1. A Whisper-Quiet Interior For Better Passenger Comfort

The Lexus ES line of sedans has always had a reputation for a quiet, smooth ride. However, the 2019 model takes things to another level.

Previously, the ES had floor-based sound deadening insulation on 68% of the floor pan. But now, this insulation covers 93% of the floor pan, further reducing road noise. Combined with the hybrid power train, this means whisper-quiet performance at all speeds.

And that’s not all. Opt for the F-SPORT or Ultra Luxury model, and you’ll get performance-grade noise dampeners which help to reduce vibrations and absorb noise, and a suspension that can be tuned for a more smooth and comfortable ride – or a sportier, more stiff driving experience.

  1. More Storage For Everything You Need

Who says that you need a crossover or SUV to haul large items? The Lexus ES 300h and Lexus ES 350 now have the same volume of cargo space, with 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space. Fold down the rear 60-40 split seats for even more volume.

Not only that, there are storage pockets all around the interior for your convenience. From a dual-hinge center console to spacious door bins, underfloor side pockets, and plenty of cupholders, you’ll be able to stash everything you need in your Lexus ES sedan.

  1. Refreshed Exterior And Interior Options

The new line of Lexus ES models maintains the same aggressive profile as the 2018 models, with a large, performance grille and a low stance for better handling. But you don’t just have to settle for old paint and interior styles!

In 2019, new exterior paint options will include Moonbeam Beige Metallic, which has a silvery-tan appearance and a glossy, metallic finish. Sunlit Green will also be available, which has a light grayish-green appearance that’s quite unique among luxury sedans.

Not only that, there will be more interior choices, as well. Some upscale ES 350 and 300h sedans will be available with a new “wavy” leather pattern, which offers a subtle and intricate design that flows throughout the seats, across the center console, and throughout the entire cabin.
