Lexus ES Interior

A Roomy Interior Meets Timeless Design

The Lexus ES is a luxury midsize sedan, a testament to their tried-and-true technique throughout their history. Its striking exterior design is equally matched by its spacious cabin. Those in the front seat can expect 37.5 inches of headroom and 42.4 inches of legroom—an ideal invitation to take your drive easy.

We’re particularly impressed with the interior upgrades, too. If you prefer the vibrancy of color schemes, you might want to consider the Circuit Red NuLuxe® with Hadori Aluminum trim. Its cherry-red seating glaze drips over the rich black console and interior layout to bring about an ideal, dreamy driving experience.

With all that being said, it’s all about the technology in the 2021 Lexus ES, including the available wireless charging pad and available 10.2-inch Head-Up Display. With your smartphone connected to the available 12.3-inch touch screen display, you can take advantage of connectivity services like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for music, hands-free calls, and hands-free texts!

Three Engine Options—One Solid Car

When considering the ES, you’ll have three engine options and powertrain configurations to choose from—the ES 250, ES 350, and the ES 300h hybrid engine. The ES 250 is designed with a 2.5L In-line 4-cylinder engine that provides 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. You’ll find that, in the ES 250, acceleration is leisurely, as witnessed by the 0 to 60 MPH time of 8.6 seconds.

Meanwhile, the ES 350 is a meatier engine. The 3.5L V6 engine sports front-wheel drive while maintaining a neat 302 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. While the ES 250 is perfect for cruising around town, the Lexus ES 350 manages handling, acceleration, and overall performance with more authority. Oh, and did we mention you can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds?

The hybrid option, the ES 300h, comes with a 2.5L In-line 4-cylinder engine that makes 215 total system horsepower as part of its high-output electric-drive motor when using the standard EV mode. In addition to the great engine, you’re also in control with its EPA-estimated 43 MPG city/44 MPG highway fuel economy.*

Lexus ES Safety

Lexus Manages Your Safety at All Times

The Lexus ES features the class-leading Lexus Safety System+ 2.0, which comes equipped with all you’ll need to stay protected. From the moment you turn on the engine, this safety suite begins its patrol—and we couldn’t be more ecstatic to share these safety features with you.

The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is an especially dependable tool that works like a charm both day and night. Its Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist acts as a spiritual successor in that it keeps a keen eye on your immediate surroundings to prevent any impact from occurring.

Another notable added feature is Road Sign Assist. This feature takes advantage of a built-in camera that provides road sign information at all times. Be sure to also check out the Lane Tracing Assist, a tool meant to keep you consistently centered in your lane.
