The new 2020 Lexus Lexus ES 300h is a luxury sedan that features daring design, combined with imaginative technology and dynamic performance.

It’s the most fuel-efficient among all non-plug-in luxury vehicles, featuring a 2.5-leter engine that’s the most powerful ES Hybrid yet.  

Combining next-generation hybrid technology and a highly potent 2.5-liter engine, this is the best of everything the ES has to offer. Its battery is not only remarkably small and lightweight, but it’s also strategically placed as close to the middle of the vehicle as possible for optimized front/rear weight distribution and a lower center of gravity. And with paddle shifters that deliver driving dynamics similar to the bigger ES 350 model, all of these features help to bring you closer to the road than ever before. And it gives the ES bragging rights to being the most fuel-efficient among all non-plug-in luxury vehicles, period. And a Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle certification means it produces fewer smog-forming emissions than conventionally powered vehicle. 

Inside, the ES offers a spacious and inviting cabin with class-leading rear legroom. Other interior comforts include a power rear sunshade and supple semi-aniline leather–trimmed seats, including a 14-way driver seat and a 10-way front passenger seat.

The sculpted character lines compliment the daring exterior design with innovative engineering. The sounds of the roads and streets are for the outside, so once you’re inside the ES you hear less of what’s outside, so that driver and passengers can thoroughly enjoy the interior sounds of whatever is taking place. Building on the sound-dampening capabilities of the flagship LS, the ES features redesigned components that minimize engine vibration and significantly reduce road noise, allowing you to focus more on pure driving. 

The ES offers contemporary styling and modern luxury. Discover interior comforts like 10-way adjustable power seats with heating and ventilation. Unlike conventional ventilated seats, these seats pull air directly from the climate-control system to more effectively and efficiently cool you. 

The ES Hybrid builds upon its bold exterior styling with a sleek, concealed exhaust. This provides an incredibly refined ride. The rigid platform and Lexus-first Hybrid-Acoustics offer unprecedented sound-dampening measures, such as high-precision noise-canceling technology, to ensure the quietest drive possible. 

The All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control system uses radar and camera technology to help you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. Whether at highway speeds or in stop-and-go traffic, the system is designed to detect if you get closer than the preset distance and automatically slow your vehicle—even to a complete stop. If driving at highway speeds and the road ahead clears, your Lexus returns to its preset speed.
