Lexus ES 300h gets a new luxury packageSeptember 8, 2020
While the entire Lexus ES range gets additional safety technologies, the new Lexus ES 300h Premium trim adds many additional features over the base model.
Lexus has unveiled a new Premium trim for the ES 300h, currently available to order. The first deliveries of the model are scheduled for October this year. At £ 35,750, the Lexus ES 300h Premium is just £ 550 more than the entry-level model, but gets £ 3,140 extra equipment. Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, 12.3-inch navigation system, heated steering wheel, wireless smartphone charging, heated windshield and automatic wipers.
Regardless of trim level, all Lexus ES models feature enhanced safety technologies, including blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert. The entry-level ES gets a 10-speaker Pioneer audio system, dual-zone climate control, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, a sunroof, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. All models are still available with a hybrid powertrain that includes a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and an efficient electric motor.
Above the Premium is the F Sport, which gets a more generous Tech and Safety option, as well as a 12.3-inch screen, wireless charging, heated steering wheel and LED headlights. Even with this package, the F-Sport is priced at £ 39,255 and the CO2 emissions of 128g / km help the F Sport get into the tax bracket with a 28 percent discount through the government’s Benefit in Kind campaign. The F Sport adds adaptive dampers, a unique body kit, 19-inch wheels, rear glass and auto-folding mirrors.
The top version of the Takumi received a Mark Levinson audio system with 17 speakers, a head-up display, semi-aniline leather upholstery, special Shimamoku wood inserts in the dashboard, and an electronic tailgate with a shock sensor. Among other things, Lexus is additionally offering branded digital rearview mirrors at a price of £ 1,600.
