INTRODUCING THE ESThe exciting new Lexus ES shatters preconceptions about executive saloons. Benefitting from a brave new approach to design, made it lower, wider and sleeker. Combining a stunning coupé-like silhouette with the roominess and refinement of a flagship saloon, the ES delivers elegance and comfort in one exceptional vehicle.
When designing the look and feel Yasuo Kajino, ES Chief Designer and his team’s starting point was the Lexus Future Interior concept, which blends a driver-centric cockpit with a spacious and comfortable area for the front passenger. It will be a connected space with optional navigation system including a range of connected services. The navigation provides a 12.3-inch multimedia display and second generation Remote Touch touchpad control. Its voice recognition extends to a mobile assistant allowing a contactless driver’s smartphone control.
According to Chief Engineer Yasuhiro Sakakibara, this ES has been built to deliver a fundamentally higher level of performance than any of its predecessors. The chassis team sought to create a sense of comforting predictability coupled with a feeling of quick response to every movement. Yoshiaki Ito, the ES’ chief test driver, explained: “We want every kind of driver to feel a sense of complete control when they are behind the wheel of the ES. It’s a level of comfort that goes beyond merely delivering a smooth ride.”
