The 12.3-inch touchscreen, which serves as the whole control
hub for the vehicle, is the major talking point inside. Shortcut
buttons, steering controls, and a track pad controller, which
were present in the previous version, will be welcomed by
those who enjoy utilising physical buttons. Lexus provides
built-in navigation, and the ES finally supports Apple Carplay
and Android Auto.
A three zone climate control, roller blinds on the windows and
rear windscreen, and infotainment control buttons, in addition
to the abundance of cabin space, supportive seats, and a
reclining feature for the back rest, add to the comfort of rear
seat occupants.
The ES 300h is powered by a petrol-hybrid drivetrain that
produces a combined 218 horsepower and is coupled to an eCVT that sends power to the front wheels. It sets off in full
electric mode and can be driven quietly and smoothly at city
speeds. The ES 300h drives and handles like a dream thanks to
202Nm of torque and the pretty good electronics that make it
corner well.
The Lexus ES features a surprising amount of athletic prowess
in addition to a superb riding quality. However, it's not really a
sports sedan. When driving more spiritedly, the steering seems
somewhat numb, and the wood-trimmed wheel is
uncomfortable to grip. With an abundance of low-end torque,
the hybrid powertrain is pleasantly snappy when driving
around town. Even though it loses some steam at the top end
when pushed on a more difficult road, it is still fun to drive.
